Consult and design
FDM Group is an international IT services company with offices in Brighton, London, Manchester, New York, Frankfurt, Zurich, Luxembourg, Hong Kong and Singapore.
To accommodate their ongoing expansion, the company has recently relocated from a space split across two floors to the 3rd floor of the Cottons Centre, London – a large single space that will support its growth and act as its European flagship office. We held multiple design workshops to truly understand the client’s vision of their new office environment.
Manage and build
With just nine and a half weeks to fit out 31,500 sq ft, our design teams worked closely with the client steering team to create an environment that catered for the company’s two audiences: clients and graduates. Inspired by this, our designers purposefully chose robust materials to cope with the high volume of graduates passing through the space.
The new space
The final design comprises of: 14 flexible training rooms, including a 100-seat auditorium, interview rooms, offices, a library, internal meeting rooms, breakout areas, a main reception and academy reception. In the end, we successfully met the brief, creating an efficient workplace on time and within budget.
