Global Technology Company - Rethink Agility

How Instant is Rethinking Workspace for a global technology client, enabling them to respond at speed to changing workspace requirements in London.


Our client’s 25% YOY growth was outpacing plans for their new London Head Office, creating an immediate demand for temporary, high-quality, Central London workspace.


To find, facilitate and fit-out a branded and inspiring workspace for 600 people within a 4-month delivery deadline.

  • Tight timescales and scale of
    fit-out necessitated an immediately available workspace
  • The need to attract and retain top quality staff demanded a first-rate solution, even in a temporary workspace
  • To balance projected headcount growth with shifting HQ completion dates, ensuring flexibility through an extendable 2-year lease
  • With no available premises offering the right specification and lease length within the compressed time frame,
    the client was faced with a limited and sub-optimal choice of workspaces
Transformation dashboard
  • Combining market insight and local relationships, Instant provided a same-day shortlist of four pre-qualified off-market workspaces
  • Despite the urgency, by maintaining client anonymity, Instant pre-negotiated preferred terms with all potential landlords
  • Instant delivered an end-to-end Managed solution in a 48,000 sq.ft. workspace comprising:
    • Two floors in a prime,
      Central London location
    • Complex, high-speed fit-out completed to enable occupancy within the required timescales
    • Independent procurement platform which enabled accelerated and low-cost delivery, despite high spec
    • Bespoke interior design, furnishings and materials used as a test-bed for future HQ
