Barclays Capital, Condor House, London.
Client: Barclays Capital
Architect: Bennet Interior Design
Contractor: Wates Interiors
Duration: 12 weeks
Barclays Capital was a complete refurbishment of the fourth floor of the Condor House office building adjacent to St. Paul’s Cathedral, London. The contract required us to work closely with not only the client and architects, but also the M&E and dry-lining contractors to achieve a high specification and top quality finish.
High specification bespoke joinery fit out including a floating reception desk, solid oak curved feature walls, impact resistant coloured glass clad partitions, door sets, ironmongery and coat cupboards. One of the most distinctive features of this project was the impressive bespoke reception desk: constructed of black impact-resistant glass with a white sail effect worktop, the desk was designed to ‘float’ into the wall behind in the architects’ design intent sketches – A feature that we managed to bring to life with considerable success.
As operations manager for Wates Interiors Limited, going that bit further in giving the customer what they want is second nature to me. So working along side a company that delivers is what I want and this is exactly what I get when using SJE.
We have completed over 10 projects together, working in the following sectors. Legal, education, government and financial where introducing SJE to our blue chip clients has never been a problem.
Our last project together was the head quarters for London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority. Where time quality and budget were key factors in winning this project. So I made an easy choice and involved SJE, knowing that their entry cost would be 95% of their exit.
