Consumer electronics company and household name Casio was founded in 1957 by the 4 Kashio brothers. Their first invention? The revolutionary compact all-electric calculator. Ever since then, innovation has been the mainstay of Casio’s business, creating inventions that have improved daily life for generations of customers.
Casio UK’s staff were spread over 3 floors in their North London office. The lack of breakout spaces and dispersed design was making it hard to collaborate effectively, so Casio appointed us to design and deliver a comprehensive refurbishment of their 15,000 sq/ft office. We worked closely with the Casio team to create a design package that managed their brief and budget. The concept featured improved collaboration areas, an open town hall space, and an improved desking layout. The design made it much easier for Casio to work together on their projects.
However, due to landlord redevelopment plans, Casio had to relocate to a new office.We utilised our network of commercial agents to support Casio in finding and shortlisting a number of potential offices. We then conducted building analysis and test fits to see which would suit Casio’s needs best. From this Casio decided to move to the brand new Hive Building in Wembley Park.
Once again, we developed a design package that utilised the building’s unique characteristics to meet Casio’s requirements. By moving onto one floor and using modern multipurpose furniture, we reduced Casio’s space needs to 10,000 sq/ft.
This 10,500 sq/ft Cat B office fit-out was delivered in just 12 weeks. This included split demise works, advanced BMS integration and services installations. Throughout the project, close communication and accountability were maintained through weekly site reporting. As a result, Casio had full visibility of the project and peace of mind that it would be completed on time, and on budget.
