Mobile workforce management solutions provider Cognito had a problem. With its existing offices being knocked down, it had a very short window to kit out its new home in Newbury’s Rivergate House.
Luckily, help was at hand from Pexhurst. In a tight, seven-week programme, Pexhurst has more than met the challenges of the project, providing Cognito with a high-quality tenant fit-out in the Berkshire town’s premier business park.
As main contractor, all trade subcontractors were overseen on this high-spec fit-out, adapting internal layouts and supplementing the landlord’s services to meet Cognito’s demands. Now, a new reception area, conference rooms, tea points and break-out areas provide Cognito with a top-end office environment. The quality is demonstrated by the inclusion of the Komfort polar double glazed partitioning system, which complements other high-end features such as the lighting.
Pexhurst has ably dealt with all the challenges met by the site and rapid turnaround required. This project also involved additions to building services, including m&e, lighting, ventilation and fire alarms, demanded by the changes to floor layouts and new facilities; for example providing supplementary ventilation and comfort cooling for the new conference rooms. And, with time of the essence, weekend and after-hours working has ensured that the client’s deadline was never in doubt.
A high-class fit-out from Pexhurst, in doublequick turnaround, has created a fabulous new home for Cognito.
