From an initial scope, Cadbury almost doubled their demands for this project. SPGI was required to play an active role in translating these demands into a functional layout while controlling the global cost and deadlines.
The project required the creation of open plan and closed offices, a reception with conference rooms and hot desks, a cafeteria, an audiovisual meeting room, a gymnasium and storage rooms. SPGI drove the project forward in two phases in the same building to ensure Cadbury became operational in the shortest possible time. Our commercial real estate market research experts offered their services to help Cadbury find the perfect building to establish its European headquarters. SPG helped Cadbury select the architect and then coordinated both parties in the development and construction of the new premises. The project was conducted in 2 phases. SPGI enabled Cadbury to begin moving their employees immediately into the premises but in temporary space whilst the project developed around them.
This enabled Cadbury to set-up their operations very rapidly in Switzerland. SPGI ensured that contracts, professional liability coverage, bank guarantees and necessary permits were obtained as well
as ensuring cost engineering and payments control.
