We have just completed what was probably our biggest project of the year so far and it went pretty much seamlessly thanks to a concerted team effort . It was a fairly daunting task but the Metric team most certainly stepped up to the plate!
We were approached by our loyal customer Europcar to move their corporate headquarters from Bushey to Watford. This involved a complete refurbishment and fit-out of their new building, moving their people (out and in) and clearing their old offices – all in a very tight time frame!
So the race began to re-house 130 staff in Oak House. In the course of the project we laid 15,000 metres of data & power cabling, fitted 6.5 tonnes of glass partitioning (200 square metres), laid 6000 carpet tiles, applied 90 gallons of paint and hung 75 square metres of graphic wall covering. We also supplied and fitted blinds throughout. All this before we moved the new furniture in!
The result is a largely open-plan office area comprising 130 workstations, 140 linear metres of storage, booth seating for informal meetings, 12 offices and 8 meeting rooms together with a kitchen/dining area. Utilising the company’s corporate colours the space is clean, modern and stylish. The meeting rooms were ‘tree’ themed reflecting their Oak House address. Overall an inviting and inspiring workspace befitting of a company with Europcar’s professional credentials.
Most importantly our client is over the moon!
“The team at Metric have been an absolute pleasure to deal with at every stage of our office move. From planning the floor plan and working with us on the design of the office, right through to completing the build and moving us in their can do approach made the move a real pleasure. Nothing was too much trouble and they were able to deliver a fantastic office within a tight deadline. I would recommend the Metric team and look forward to working with them again.”
