A Swiss adventure

21 November 2016. News.

Congratulations to our client Nicoll Curtin who relocate to their new Zurich office later this week.

Having delivered their Fenchurch Street office earlier in 2016, we were delighted to jump on a plane and meet with them to discuss their plans and see how we could best support them. As with their London office, Nicoll Curtin had outgrown their previous office space and wanted to create the best environment to help them retain and empower their talented staff.

Our project management team were first on board, helping Nicoll Curtin assess the suitability of different offices, including feasibility studies and space plans. Once the office space was chosen, we liaised with local architects to create detailed plans and then interviewed contractors having supplied a drawings package and specification of works for them to price against. To ensure the smooth delivery of their new office, we appointed a contractor who had experience in the building. Throughout the project we had weekly conference calls with all parties, attended site at key milestone meetings and were there on the project handover.

Creating synergy with their London office was key so the same office designer who had worked on their Fenchurch Street office stepped up to work with the Zurich team. Whilst developing mood boards and visuals, we ensured we didn’t simply replicate the design, but instead used a few key design elements such as signage and glass manifestation. We then enhanced that with office design features including a large digital wallpaper showing a Zurich cityscape scene. We also advised on which office furniture would best complement our office design.

Our Project Director, Jonathan Dawes, said: “It was great working alongside Nicoll Curtin again. Although we typically focus on London, we also enjoy the odd overseas trip with our clients to help ensure that their international offices enjoy the same quality and consistency of their London offices. Our in-depth knowledge of their brand and how they work was crucial in delivering another successful workplace for them”.

Tom O’Loughlin, Nicoll Curtin GmbH’s Executive Director, said: “Nicoll Curtin’s three core value pillars are; Delivery, Customer Experience and People. In opening a new office, we aim to provide our people with a modern environment where they can deliver on the first two pillars. Peldon Rose have absolutely fulfilled that ambition. With state of the art workstations, smart screen meeting rooms for training and video conferencing, a large modern kitchen and even a PlayStation room to chill out in… we’re confident that this environment will drive even further success.”
