Location: Old Broad Street, London
Project: Office Fit Out
Project Size: 8,000 sq ft
Timeline: 12 weeks
The workplace consultant, Saracen Interiors completed a fit out project for Sharia Compliant Bank, a Shariah trading investment bank on Old Broad Street. The project covered alterations to a meeting room space, to create two further meeting rooms, a prayer room and additional managers’ offices plus the reconfiguration of open-plan office space to accommodate an additional 20 members of staff. Work included the fitting of carpets and glazed screens and the adapting of existing door modules and storage cupboards.
Joint Managing Director of Saracen Interiors, Michael Page believes that the key to the company’s success in the City lies with its sensitivity to the needs of its clients and its ability to carry out fast-track projects while maintaining a live working environment: “Every effort is made to understand and protect the client’s business which means that, as well as providing working environments that meet the client’s requirements, we ensure that it’s business as usual where possible. In this instance, that has meant completing all work during the night and at the weekend in order not to interrupt the working day. “The site itself was challenging as there was only one point of access for all vans and materials but we’re used to working in central London and the issues that go hand-in-hand with this location and we are adept at finding the right solution to enable us to work quickly and effectively to get the job done.”
