A state of the art iNNovation suite at the cutting edge of technology
Protiviti are a global business advisory firm, providing consulting solutions in internal audit, risk and compliance, technology, data analytics and finance.
Completing our fourth project in The Shard, we worked closely with Protiviti to create an iNNovation suite within their current space to replace some out of date internal meeting rooms. After the success of iNNovation suites in Chicago and New York, Protiviti wanted to open a new suite in London to complement their US spaces and improve the working environment. The brief was to create a stimulating space where staff can sign up to incubate ideas and accelerate their exploration of new and emerging technologies. They chose our boutique Design and Build model as they wanted all of the services to be supplied under one roof, a major change from the previous iNNovation suite projects which took a 5 months to complete. Our programme took just 7 weekends, completing the work out of hours and allowing the Protiviti to remain in occupation and fully functional.
Within the suite we created a visually stimulating space, choosing a bold colour scheme and included hexagonal shapes that are both angular and on brand. The suite is used by both staff and clients in design-innovation workshops, with a variety of rooms providing space for different ways of working, all with the outstanding technology integration. Protiviti required 11 high-tech touch screens with full audio visual capability, allowing their London workshops to seamlessly link with the US suites. We designed mobile and interchangeable furniture in to the space which is easily re-arranged depending on the activity and group size. What was once a dull unused series of meeting rooms is now a hub or activity, allowing Protiviti to operate at the cutting edge of their field.
