Office Fit out Aquent

AQUENT

“The Office Principles team not only had to contend with doing the majority of the work during normal office hours with our staff working in close proximity to the work area, but also getting the project completed during the Olympics. They did a really great job in minimising any adverse business impact a project of this type could have had, whilst also, most importantly, keeping our staff as safe as possible. We cannot recommend Office Principles enough and will not hesitate to use them in the future.”

“I feel that I need to write to Office Principles to place on record that a first class job was done, by everyone involved in this project at Office Principles. Throughout the entire journey with your team, we saw a high and innovative level of creative input from your design team, excellent craftsmanship, all of which was knitted together with strong project management skills, to deliver the project, both on time and within budget. However, the most amazing achievement of all was the refurbishment of our 5,200 sq ft, 3rd floor. Here 52 people were working, but the challenge to OP was that ‘our business could not be disrupted and the staff could not be relocated to accommodate access’, for what was to be a complete refurbishment, inclusive of added partition walls, new and relocated floor boxes, lighting alterations, new carpet, redecoration and a re-shuffle of desks, c/w new desk screens. Thank you, Office Principles.”

“Well our refurbishment is now fully complete and the offices are looking absolutely superb. We have now had quite a few visitors through the office, all of which have been extremely complementary on both the quality and colour scheme and the waves have gone down especially well, so this was money well spent! We would like to reiterate our total satisfaction with this project, which has been executed to a very high standard. We have found it a complete pleasure to deal with such a professional company, who have handled every aspect of the project with precision – a rare quality today. Please also pass on our thanks to the whole team involved in this project, especially our project Manager. We will indeed have no qualms in recommending your company to others.”

Office fit out Dewhurst

DEWHURST

“Office Principles carried out the Fit Out of our new premises at Hampton Business Park from July to December 2011. They did a good job from concept to implementation. Their design ideas and understanding of our requirements and preferences made them stand out when we were at the specification and quoting stage and was a major reason for their selection. In a major project of this nature there are always going to be surprises and challenges along the way, but Office Principles always approached these things with a positive attitude, which helped us work through things to come up with the right result. Their strength was very much on the office side and we did have to give them a fair amount of guidance on the factory element. Having said that, they selected a good team to support them in that area. Crucially the design of the office and reception areas we have now look exactly like the visualisations presented to us, so I would say from our experience you really can trust that they will deliver what they have proposed. Also the job was completed according to the project plan on time and the move element itself went very smoothly. The team involved with our project were a pleasure to deal with and I would have no hesitation using Office Principles on another project or recommending them to others.”

Office fit out Directlife

DIRECTLIFE

“Our brief to Office Principles was one of extremely tight timescales, lots of landlord and third party involvement and financial constraints. On submission of the tender I was extremely pleased to see that you had really captured the essence of the company and the designs submitted were fresh and vibrant. As with any project of this magnitude there are always obstacles and issues to overcome but Office Principles were always amicable and professional in their communications with us. Overall, a very professional job carried out with extremely tight deadlines and financial constraints by friendly, accommodating, professional staff.”

Office fit out DRAFTFCB

DRAFTFCB

“DRAFTFCB selected Office Principles to design and build our London office. Office Principles worked with our Executive teams to collect the requirements, get a feel for our business as well as an understanding of how we work. Office Principles provided test fits, floor plans, colour pallets, furniture inventories, and captured the creative and business requirements to run our full-service advertising agency with a global reach, for a local staff. Office Principles provided a project scope and a not-to-exceed contract which we were able to negotiate easily. Office Principles appointed a Project Manager that was fully focused on our project and worked tirelessly with our wonderful Facilities Manager to be sure that attention to the even the smallest details were covered. Office Principles, with very little exception controlled all sub-contractors and took complete responsibility for their schedules and deadlines, which were very carefully controlled. The project had a drop-dead deliverable date that could have cost us in penalties had Office Principles not delivered. Office Principles went above and beyond and never lost sight of our end result, our deadlines or our budget. We concluded the project by moving into a fantastic space which was well received by our entire staff. We moved on time, within budget with a very small snag list of items for follow up. Office Principles has stood by their commitments to us and they continue to work with us on the few outstanding items we have yet to resolve. As the President of our Agency, it was a fantastic opportunity to see my vision for the future of our agency come to life. It was a pleasure working with Office Principles and we would, without hesitation, ask them to participate in future projects for the agency.”

GLAXO SMITH KLINE

“I was very pleased with both the end project and the way in which Office Principles pro-actively managed the project from start to finish. Design ideas were very relevant which led me to believe our design brief had been understood well and I continue to get good feedback from the client. Projects in live working environments are never easy and particularly so in reception areas but this was a remarkably smooth transition – I would also commend the speed in which any snagging and late changes were dealt with which is often my biggest ‘bug bear‘ with your competitors.”

Office fit out Vivendi Games

VIVENDI GAMES

“Originally, we had approached three other companies to quote for our office refit and chose Office Principles because we found them exemplary in working within our budget constraints and the friendly, professional manner in which they conducted themselves – always giving us options and alternative solutions when there was a problem. Once engaged and with an incredibly tight timeline (six weeks!), Office Principles delivered on time – again always friendly, always professional. All in all we were very happy with our new space in Marlow, and very grateful to Office Principles for seemingly accomplishing the impossible and getting us here for Day 1. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending them to any prospective client.”
