As part of careyjones’ framework agreement with GE, the Practice has completed a 80,000 sqft fit out for the GECAS group.
The client comprises 17 separate business groups each with varying briefs and requirements. careyjones were tasked with developing a detailed due diligence study to establish and develop the final layout, achieved through a series all-staff presentations and questionnaires.
The resulting design has a higher than average proportion of closed office spaces achieved by working closely with furniture manufacturers to design a bespoke, built in office furniture configuration that permitted a 30% reduction in office size, thereby opening up more of the perimeter, allowing greater daylight penetration into the space. In addition, the reduction in office size gave more space for ancillary areas, including break out, conference areas, gym, library and fully commercial restaurant and deli.
