Acting for the international publishing house Hachette UK, we have recently completed the CAT B fitting out of their London headquarters in Carmelite Riverside.

APS were appointed as Project Manager, Contract Administrator and Cost Consultant, to deliver 110,000sqft of high quality office accommodation within a strict budget and to a challenging programme.

Hachette UK is made up of seven successful publishing companies, each with distinct identity and brand that needed to be represented, and a corporate head office team.

In order to meet the client’s requirements, this large scale fit out needed a highly considered approach, and we worked closely with the project team and client stakeholders to overcome the limitations of the base build development.

Such is the success of the project, it is being nominated for a BCO Workplace Award in 2016.

"APS has been an outstanding partner for Hachette."

Chris Emerson, Hachette UK ( Chief Operating Officer )
APS has been an outstanding partner for Hachette; managing the delivery of our new London headquarters from concept to completion. The delivery of a complex and challenging fit-out, alongside relocation from five London offices, on time and on budget is a fantastic achievement. It would not have been possible without the leadership, experience and attention to detail that the APS team were able to provide. The result is a new home that has delighted our staff, authors and agents. Carmelite House has transformed Hachette UK. We asked a lot of this building, wanting it to be a 'magnet for talent' – attracting the very best staff and authors to our company. In a few short months, the building has already delivered on these rather ambitious objectives.
