House of Fraser, Oxford Street
The project was to convert the disused 6th Floor of House of Fraser on Oxford St, London into a design and innovation centre for new products. The works included removing all redundant M & E, opening up previously boarded windows, demolition of internal stud walls and removal of old floor coverings. The fitout then comprised of a new reception area, kitchen, open plan workspace, offices, boardroom and photo studio.
The challenge faced on the scheme was time – the HoF innovation team were in occupation of another office in Baker St and had to vacate by end of August. Sigma visited the site to scope the work at the beginning of July and had 3 weeks to mobilise including procuring all the glazed partitions, lighting and air conditioning units. Work commenced to strip out the unit within 2 weeks of scoping. The scope of works changed continually throughout the project to accommodate requests from the end user.
