KWB’s Birmingham office move management, design and fit out consultancy, KWB Workplace, has helped Bromsgrove technology company, RSM Partners Ltd, save money on the design and fit out of its new office building.
KWB Workplace Director, Adrian Southall, pictured right, said: “Working to RSM’s agreed design, using our experienced contractors we supplied three quotes for the office fit out. The successful contractor was 50% less than a quote that RSM had already received from a local contractor, which they had believed was competitive.
“By assisting in securing a government grant, we were able to reduce that cost by a further 50% for the client, as the fit out qualified under The Green Deal energy efficiency scheme. Ultimately, the total savings for RSM are in the tens of thousands of pounds.”
Work is already underway on the six-figure fit out at Java House on Bromsgrove Technology Park. Once it is completed, KWB Workplace will manage RSM’s move into its new office space from its old offices on Buntsford Drive, Bromsgrove.
RSM Partners is a fast growing company which provides IT support and software services for IBM mainframe computers to clients across the globe, including high street banks, major insurance companies and high street retailers.
Its move to Java House, secured by KWB, was the biggest office letting in Bromsgrove in the past two years.
Nick Davies, RSM Partners’ Finance Director, said: “I can’t thank Adrian and his team enough. We thought we had a good deal in place, but when KWB Workplace was able to halve the quote for the fit out costs, and then help to secure the green energy efficiency grant to halve them again, I was extremely thankful we had got in touch with them.
“We worked with KWB Workplace to make sure that we had the right design for our new office space. As an independent consultancy, they could then find the best contractors to tender to provide the fit out to our specification, so it made it easy to choose a contractor, and of course Adrian and his team are managing the entire project, so we just have one point of contact which saves me management time.”
KWB Workplace would advise those considering the fit out of existing space or an office move, to get in touch. Occupiers regularly pay far more than they need to, for the exact same products, services and results, and KWB Workplace wants to change that.
