“Please Design and Build Us a World-Class Working Environment”

This West End based Hedge Fund presented us with an open plan “Cat A” office and requested a “world class working environment” to help launch them on the next stage of their expansion. The client was already working in the building when the opportunity arose to expand into a larger space. They seized their chance to double their footprint in this prized location. They stipulated that the design should be functional, productive and of high quality. It would also be used for meeting clients, so the design mustn’t seem opulent or frivolous.

Cat A means that the office space was equipped with suspended ceilings, raised floors and basic heat, light and HVAC infrastructure. From a design and fit-out perspective it was a blank canvas. DRCG had the responsibility to deliver all aspects of the brief. We provided a custom design solution covering space planning, trading technology, IT infrastructure, dealing desks and other furniture. Having gained an understanding of our client’s working practices our designer interpreted the brief by

As capital markets specialists we provided consultancy on trader voice and data technology options and rolled out the full implementation in the dealing room and individual offices. We installed uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) for continuity purposes. The selection of our exclusive Wall Street Trading Desks and flat screen arms made the installation aspect of this work easier and facilitates the on-going work of the IT administrators.

This client selected the Ultra desking range from our exclusive British made, Wall Street Trading Desk range. These fully customisable desks are built to the highest standards. They are space efficient with all wiring and UPS discreetly concealed. Our furniture expertise goes far beyond this exceptional product though. From the sofa, coffee table and armchairs in reception, to the office and boardroom chairs, the large boardroom table and the bright custom finished furniture in the breakout area

We are always happy to hear from clients, new and existing.
