“In creating a new experience PTS proposed to locate the Café and break out space to the front of the office into an area traditionally utilised only as a waiting area by clients. The emphasis was to draw all staff to congregate and create a more dynamic experience, in essence “a sense of arrival.”

Summary


PTS’ complete end to end capability ensured that costs were tightly managed against benchmark data for fit‐out. Where raw materials could be sourced locally or in nearby neighbouring countries to reduce lead time, PTS’ relationships with vendors and suppliers allowed for this. PTS’ long-standing relationship with SWIFT also came to therefore with its ability to carry previous best practice experiences across Asia‐Pacific to the project by employing a setup function from Tokyo to lead the early phases of the kick-off process. This approach ensured PTS could engage instantly with the Client in managing their expectations from beginning to end.
