Brief

MPACT was appointed by TechnipFMC to undertake the complete interior fit out of a new 4 storey extension to their Fife Office.

The objective of the client was to offer their staff a new and modern office area within a relaxed setting. This was to be reflected not just in the layout but in the design of the interiors and the materials and colouring used.

Their works included the external insulation, all new M&E throughout, ceilings, raised access flooring and the creation of a new stairwell through two areas of the building (see image).

For the finish, the design team had specified the creation of new partitioning systems including the manufacturing and installation of bespoke units. Various  flooring works finishes and decoration completed the contract with a sparkle clean ensuring that the handover was well received..

Details

FMC were a long-standing client prior to their merger with Technip which ensured that we were very familiar with the standards which would be expected.

Working closely with the designers and using our knowledge, we were able to value-engineer certain aspects to create an innovative and practical environment whilst taking into consideration space planning and staff flow.

The outcome of this meeting of minds – client, designer and ourselves – ensured that the project and operational planning were delivered to the highest standards.

Outcome

The feedback from the client and more importantly, to the client from their staff indicated that the brief was successfully met. The finish achieved was to a very high standard and that staff interest and awareness had been maintained for significant period time after completion.

Our experience of working in various fit out contracts – in this case a modern office block – enabled us to complete the project within the 24-week projected deadline and on budget.

This project positively reflects on the significant increase in the internal fit out projects we have seen over the last thirty-six months. This was an important step in our strategy and gave us the opportunity to add additional skills and experience.
