We engaged with BSD on the FANUC project to provide us a robust and professional design for our end client.

The client was delighted with the end result and was more than happy with the service we gave them through all aspects of the design process

“BSD acted on behalf of Catlin Group Limited on the M&E designs for their new offices at 20 Gracechurch Street between 2009 and 2011. The project involved the tenant fit-out of130,000 sq.ft. of office space comprising open plan offices, meeting rooms, catering kitchens and extensive welfare facilities. BSD was part of the project team from the outset and worked alongside our architects, project manager and the rest of the professional team, as well as doing extensive due diligence work prior to us signing a lease on the property.

 The project scope grew extensively during the design phase and into the fit-out on site. Throughout BSD was able to absorb the ever-changing landscape and provide the necessary expertise, flexibility and pragmatic approach to deliver a successful project across a range of mechanical, electrical and IT related disciplines.

They remain employed by Catlin today and a key part of our professional team, and have subsequently worked on other floors within our main building here in London for other occupants.”
