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.
The project was nominated for a BCO Workplace Award in 2016.

“APS has been an outstanding partner for Hachette.”
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.
