01 The Opportunity
Cushman&Wakefield (C&W) had previously developed projects for OUP in other countries and, for this one, in particular, the Agency and Project&Development Services (PDS) teams joined to provide the best solution to OUP requirements.
In the first place, OUP´s vision was to optimize its office space in Madrid. Therefore, C&W starts supporting with negotiations with the landlord so they could proceed with adjusting their office space to their new ways of working, focusing on agile, more flexible and adapted areas.OUP´s goal is to get spaces that provide better environments for a variety of activities, always seeking the balance between different space typologies that enable and foster creativity and teamwork.
02 The Solution
Being these goals set for the project, Cushman&Wakefield initiate the process with a multidisciplinary team consisting of Agency and PDS professionals.
On this occasion, C&W had the opportunity to come along with OUP during the negotiations with the Landlord and manage the execution project as Project Manager during their office´s construction works.
Due to the management strategy designed for the project, C&W improved the timelines preventing OUP from having a double lease for their offices.
03 The Results
Along the process, even though C&W managed to shorter the project´s timeline, it was possible to maximise the client´s economic resources to create an office space answering thoroughly to OUP requirements.
Also, as a key factor, C&W joined OUP every step of the way, even to visit colleagues in the UK to check on the project´s progress.
OUP´s new workplace consists of an open space with different types of workstations, and a wide variety of collaboration areas, closed or open ones, to meet, socialise and work in a flexible way according to the new ways of working and the latest trends in the workplace.
Also, every meeting room has technological and audiovisual equipment, and the lockers and cabinets´ location slightly creates different areas, not closing them with physical barriers, so people can use and move around all areas in the office space.
