Clockwise Savoy Tower
This project involved a phased strip out and fit our across 11 floors spanning 65,000 sqft providing tenants with modern and stylish serviced offices with co-working spaces. The client brief was to focus on creating unique spaces for new start companies venturing into the office environment for the first time whilst also providing the opportunity for collaborative working.
The Landlord areas were significantly upgraded to meet the required specification of this grade of office facility. This included new basement WC, shower and changing facilities. The original client brief was to have a reception on the ground floor however it was decided that this would be best incorporated the within the Level 2 café area to create a more informal, flexible and welcoming feel which was in keeping with the Clockwise brand identity that the client was keen to create and showcase.
A key challenge on this project was working within an already live occupied building. Following the original project which involved the refurbishment and fit out of the Level 2 reception and café area plus Levels 8, 9 & 10, this project focused on phase 2 of completing the remaining levels on Level 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 & 11. Stakeholder Management was important and involved making sure that all current tenants were made aware of the proposed works and that we continued to work in tandem with them to ensure that any and all disruption was kept to an absolute minimum. This was important to our client in terms of relationship management with the existing tenants.
The programme for completing the remaining floors was extremely tight as the client had already began the marketing of the new serviced offices therefore a pragmatic approach to design, procurement and completing the works was required. We decided that it was best to negotiate with a contractor well known to PMP who had previously completed works in the building. The programme strategy involved overlapping the design packages to allow the contractor to be able to price and start the works whilst the design for the other floors was being carried out by the design team. We also benefited from placing an enabling works package which involved strip out and site investigation works. This overlapping of activities strategy gave the client programme advantage and also reduced on site costs.
The detailed scope definition was critical to ensuring that the interface between each package were understood. Close control of the programme and sequencing were required at all times to avoid clashes between the packaging of the works. This strategy resulted in this project being delivered on time and within budget.
