Old Greenwich, CT, USA
Providing hedge fund and quantitative investment services, this global firm is known for their innovative trading processes. They were looking to significantly upgrade their headquarters, creating a better working environment for staff.
We used our full methodology – strategy, design, and construction to meet the firm’s business objectives. We found they wanted high design, limited risk, and cost certainty due to a phased construction need. Through our uniBIM software, we showed them 3D, realistic visuals with a cost and phasing plan to enhance decision making and buildability.
The new workplace showcases the brand and cutting-edge nature of the firm with featured accents like light fixtures, eclectic furniture, and detailed woodwork. Our design team worked closely with the facilities team to make sure the space was very functional for staff, providing different work styles for them to perform at their highest productivity. Due to the sensitive nature of the firm’s work, all areas are acoustically sound and advanced security technology adheres to their protocols.
Using the new workplace as a differentiator for recruiting and retention, the client wanted areas that would engage the staff and improve their overall experience. The office has two highlight areas, a library with various furniture types for quiet refuge and intimate meetings, and an open lounge. The lounge has a variety of amenities including TVs and billiards and is soundproof so as not to disturb others working.
Throughout the process, the client was impressed about the level of communication and coordination between the design and delivery teams. They are very happy with the space and the staff enjoy the new collaboration and lounge areas.
