The project

One of many logistical challenges involved the manoeuvring of a single 14-metre, three and a half tonne solid steel beam which had to be installed into the building in one piece.

CMS was relocating from their established offices to a new 160,000 sq ft open plan space at Cannon Place.

The project involved installing two feature staircases linking all three floors. On the first floor, the team designed a brand new reception complete with a striking 17th century map of London.

A new staff restaurant was installed on the first floor. The award winning studio-style open plan fit out also included new IT infrastructure.
