The Challenge

Engine employed hop, following a competitive tender, to carry out a full building refurbishment in situ. Originally planned as a 16-week rolling refurbishment, the project was interrupted by our dear friend COVID-19. However, we had completed four floors out of six with the client-facing floors left to complete later this year. The brief was to create an agile and flexible space that allowed this market leading creative agency the space to work and invent, whilst maintaining a calm and homely feel.

The Solution

We worked closely with the client to develop a programme that worked for everyone. We were able to condense one of the floors to accept all staff whilst gutting and refurbishing the vacated floor, we did this throughout the building which led to a perfectly smooth transition from old to new.
