BDO where looking to relocate to the 12 Floor of Thames Tower, Reading. After an exhaustive tender process, they hired Office Principles as workplace consultant, designer and fitout partner for this prestigious interior. We recently spoke to Simon Brooker, Managing Partner at BDO to get his thoughts on how the project went.
The outcome of the workplace consultancy study was to adopt an agile working strategy which has resulted in a reduction of 2,824 square foot, and has taken BDO to a single floor plate. Our team of engineers and designers created an egalitarian new workspace that maximises the 360 degree views and uses the 4-meter-high ceiling and exposed services to maximise the square footage available. Key workspaces include a silent library for quiet work, acoustic hot pods for quick individual phone calls, a premium client meeting suite with a generous café and work zones with a philosophy of everyone owns everywhere. BDO are a global accountancy and business advisory service.
