Fintech & Change recruitment specialists Nicoll Curtin viewed their lease expiry as an opportunity to embrace change and transform the way in which they work. As a company that pride themselves on working with the best and brightest people, an essential part of their company ethos is that of “People First.”
Nicoll Curtin live by their values and wanted a fit-out partner with whom they could form a genuine partnership. For their new London office, our journey with Nicoll Curtin started way in advance of their actual move and this helped us to develop a solid relationship. Peldon Rose were invited to view a short list of potential office spaces to offer advice on the best location and most suitable building for them.
Our vision was to create three distinct zones within the office space, namely the front of house, the open plan work zone and a break out area that offered a strong sense of community and emphasised staff wellbeing. The reception area creates a striking first impression, where guests can enjoy stunning views of the City and notably 20 Fenchurch Street, better known as ‘The Walkie Talkie’.
This area naturally leads into the open plan area which is a vibrant hub of activity. Carrying on the theme of wellbeing, a contemporary shower and changing area was installed with plenty of storage to encourage those staff who cycle, run or use the gym. Another key area for staff welfare is the kitchen breakout, which has stunning City views and a balcony providing that all important outside space for staff. The kitchen area is designed to make it suitable for ‘all-hands’ company meetings as well as lunch, quiet working, informal catch-ups and most importantly, enjoying hot drinks and fresh, healthy meals.
Throughout the office interior, the design maximises natural light by using glass partitions to meeting rooms with understated manifestation representing circuit boards, relating to their IT recruitment roots. The brand identity was further instilled by our furniture team who chose statement pieces for the reception, kitchen and meeting spaces.
Clearly technology is important to a leading recruiter in the technology industry. As such, we specified new products that are at the heart of changing the way in which people use office space. Evoko Room Booking Systems were installed into the meeting rooms and interactive TV’s were used within the meeting rooms in order to create as much flexibility for these spaces as possible.
Our people told us they wanted a professional, high-end environment. That’s what Peldon Rose gave us. I keep getting these waves of love for the office and am really grateful to Peldon Rose.
