Full Fit-Out Services in a Grade 1 Listed Building
This mid-sized investment bank from Seaport, New York was setting up a European HQ in London. DRCG provided full project management, implementing the workspace design from the client’s architect and providing consultancy on trading technology, mechanical and electrical issues, furniture and security. We designed and installed the contemporary tea point. The new office was in a Grade 1 listed building in The City so another key part of our role was to obtain consent for the proposed interior from the council planning authority.
DRCG installed floor to ceiling glazed and solid partitioning, carpets and specialist floor finishes to create the spacious feel the architect had envisaged. We also provided feature ceilings and lighting and managed the procurement and installation of soft furnishings. We delivered full design and implementation of the kitchen facility.
No workspace can be successful without the right furniture. We are office furniture experts with full market visibility and exclusive access to British made, customisable trading desks and flat screen arms. We managed the design and manufacture of custom furniture for Seaport and supplied trading desks from our own range. We supplied further desks when the client asked us to assist with their subsequent office expansion (see below). We also built the illuminated reception desk in line with the client’s requirements.
Technology and Security
DRCG is the recognised specialist for trading floor and dealing room design and fit-out. Financial trading is a technology dependent industry and we provide clients like Seaport Group with consultancy on the relevant voice and data products, compliance, continuity, security and wider infrastructure. In this case we installed the voice and data solutions as well as designing and building the comms room. We also installed uninterruptible power supply (UPS) and an Inergen fire suppression and leak detection system.
Many of our clients call us back in when their businesses expand. Seaport Group invited us back to implement an office space expansion. The DRCG team successfully delivered and installed additional new dealing desks. We also wired in a dedicated underfloor electrical circuit, for which we supplied all cabling and components, to bring power to the new desking area.
