Interiors including design, build and supply of furniture.

The Challenge

Cummins Generator Technologies wanted to move into a new flagship, European headquarters, moving from their existing premises in Stamford to new offices in Peterborough. Where they were used to working in cellular offices, they were looking for a more open plan approach, including a general seating area, meeting room facilities, collaborative areas throughout the building, as well as a restaurant and an executive floor.

The existing fit-out of the new premises did not meet the client’s requirements and a lot of remedial work was needed before work on the new lay out could begin. Windows and ceilings needed replacing as well as services such as toilets and the kitchen areas.

It became apparent, quite quickly, that the building was not to the standard the client had believed so the scope of the existing project had to be expanded and, what started as a £400k fit-out, become a £1million project.

Cummins found working with the landlord’s workforce, prior to acquiring the building, was also problematic delaying the project by six months.

Our Solution

InteriorsTeam project managed the fit-out in its entirety. They helped with the landlord negotiations at the beginning and ensured the project was delivered to the agreed timescales.

As the main contractor for the project, InteriorsTeam provided an end-to-end solution incorporating a large degree of design and build. InteriorsTeam undertook the supply and installation of the ceilings, flooring, partitioning, special joinery, lighting solutions and working with the M&E and HVAC contractors.
