Grant Thornton is the world's largest professional services network of independent accounting and consulting member firms.
Having previously moved due to the 2011 Christchurch Earthquakes, Grant Thornton's team were looking to relocate back to a prominent location within the Christchurch CBD. A key requirement for their design was they didn’t want their office to look like a typical accounting firm, but rather ‘a category of one’.
Our open-plan office design incorporates a great deal of multi-functionality, ensuring staff and usage have optimal flexibility i.e. the main boardroom can extend to open into the front of house area, providing space to host events and functions. Carpet and lighting throughout the office was planned to tie the entire space together and create a sense of cohesion; exterior signage was incorporated in a way that maximizes external branding opportunities.
The design process was excellent- we felt fully involved and trusted Siavash's input completely. Kerry and Michael were both a "safe pair of hands" - ample communication, quick decisions, easily accessible. We were kept in the loop at all times
