London Hedge Fund Relocation, Including the Kitchen Sink
DRCG are the ideal partner when your trading firm is relocating. Sequoia Capital LLP was moving to a larger office in London’s West End. The existing space had some partitioning in place but required refurbishment before they moved in with their existing furniture. DRCG were engaged to make the new office fully fit for purpose and to install a specialist kitchen and a coordinated tea point.
Our teams are expert at relocation work and can perform large installations without interrupting our clients’ business activity. Typically, they start work after trading closes on Friday and follow a refined assembly, connection and testing process so that our clients can start trading without disruption on Monday morning.
Technology Consultancy and Workspace Fit-Out
Our team consulted on trader voice and data systems and we designed and built a new Comms Room. We also installed upgraded cabling and uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) and tested the existing fire suppression and leak detection system. With the infrastructure in place, we were able to upgrade the floor coverings, refurbish and reconfigure the partitioning, replacing doors as required. We also installed some small pieces of bespoke furniture as requested by the client.
Kitchen and Tea Point
Most of our projects include a tea point. These important spaces are highly specced in terms of the build quality and finish as they are very visible and heavily used for preparing drinks and basic meals. In this case, the client had their own executive chef, so, in addition to the tea point, we were required to design a fully appointed professional kitchen. We installed a large double oven and a five-ring hob top with extractor. The kitchen had plenty of work surfaces, electrical sockets and storage space. It was created in stylish but practical wipe-down materials. The coordinated tea point was just outside the kitchen and was designed to provide extra food preparation space when required.
DRCG were a pleasure to work with and have provided us with a truly impressive working environment which all our staff are delighted with.
