The Client: 

AMEC Foster Wheeler offer consultancy, engineering, project management, operations and construction services, project delivery and specialised power equipment services to a worldwide customer base. They have more than 160 years of history, employ around 35,000 people and operate in more than 55 countries. 

The Project: 

As part of their strategic plan to introduce SMART working, it was recognized that the existing space at Canon Court, Shrewsbury would be too large for future requirements and that space on the first floor could be returned to the landlord.

SMART working would introduce a fundamental change in the way people would be expected to operate within the office environment. Archiving of documents would be encouraged to reduce the amount of on-site filing, personal desk pedestals were removed and replaced with individual lockers and a clear desk policy was introduced. Whilst it was recognized that some people would need an allocated desk, the remainder would be able to work from any non-allocated desk.

The retained space was redecorated and re-carpeted over a series of phases. The existing desks and some storage was re-used and new operator seating was installed.

The majority of the work was completed during normal working hours with minimal disruption to the ongoing business.
