Willmott Dixon Interiors completed the CAT B fit out of the newly refurbished 11 Storey building for the Department of Health (DoH), procured through Scape Group’s National Framework.
The Scope of works included the Cat B fit out of meeting rooms, IT rooms, ground floor restaurant, conference rooms, ministers’ offices and carpeting.
To ensure a smooth transition for its 1,100 team, the DoH utilised our design and fit out skills to create a modern working environment that introduces agile working methods including hot desks and standing desk areas. This will give the DoH a lower desk: staff ratio than in Richmond House and therefore make better use of space.
As this was the largest project by the DoH to-date, our team ensured the customer was supported every step of the way, including assisting with the transition to the new office building by giving access to our FM team during the commissioning process so they had an early understanding of the building.
- Successfully delivered a defect free handover, on time and on budget
- Modern office lay-out delivered to the DoH’s vision of agile, flexible working space
- The new office benefits from a lower desk: staff ratio than in Richmond House
- WDI ensured that the DoH were aided through every step of the process while also supporting their own internal communication strategy to inform staff of the project progress and outputs.
