KPMG Edinburgh Headquarters
Clancy Consulting was appointed by Emtec Group Ltd to prepare the MEP design and site monitoring for the refurbishment and CAT B fit out works for KPMG at their existing city centre offices within Saltire Court, Edinburgh. The works were completed over 35 weeks and were required to be undertaken in two separate consecutive phases with the client remaining in occupation throughout the works.
Phase 1 comprised of enabling works to provide temporary staff accommodation for the duration of the phased works which included facilitating the retention of the existing comms / server room, a total refurbishment of the general office space and the creation of new work stations and meeting rooms, OSC areas, coffee points and collaboration zone along with upgrade of existing toilet accommodation including new IPS, alterations to existing services installations to suit new layout, including the provision of new services as required.
Phase 2 consisted of the fitting out of the client facing area along with a new café / kitchen and an area to accommodate all back of house services. The new client facing area incorporated many different finishes to reflect aspects of the Edinburgh location and included a full commercial kitchen to cater for the client suite and internal staff along with accommodation for mailrooms, furniture storage, first aid and a contemplation room.
A particular aspect of the project was to successfully carrying out the works with the client and other tenants in full occupation of the building including MEP services installations and structural alterations to the building fabric required to achieve the overall design concept.
The transformed office space was nomination in the 2019 BCO Awards, Fit-out of Workplace category.
