Scor are an independent, global Tier 1 reinsurance company with dozens of locations across the world. They aim to create the optimal level of security for their clients and value for their shareholders. Hunter’s focused on these goals of minimal risk and maximum value when carrying out their furniture installation for Scor’s new offices on Lime Street in the heart of City of London.
We worked closely with the architect, Edge, on drawing up the project specification. Clear communication was essential to the smooth running of the project.
The site posed significant challenges, in particular the lack of lifts or stairwells that were big enough for the furniture we wanted to use. To work around this, we used an external lift that had been fitted for Scor’s move into the building. Because this lift was only available for a limited time, it was essential that we prioritized delivery of items that required the external lift.
The site’s location in a tightly congested area next to Leadenhall Market meant that access was also an issue. Space was at a premium, both internally and externally. We had to coordinate closely with other contractors working on the site to guarantee the eventual success of the installation.
We used Knoll’s Antenna Workspace system to provide the client with flexible workspaces that support a range of uses. This design provides the adaptability that people increasingly seek in a contemporary office space.
The executive offices were fitted with double-depth worktops that enabled their dual function as desks and meeting tables. Chairs by Boss Design were used in the boardroom, their oak panels complementing the wooden veneers of the room and the table.
After the successful completion of this project, the client has entrusted us with the furniture installation of their renovated office space in the opposite building.
