Designing a dynamic office space for a global brand which aims to turn the skincare industry upside down with its revolutionary techniques, products, and philosophy.
Agilité was appointed by Facilitate to complete a turnkey, vibrant open plan working area, reception and meeting rooms for global skincare brand, HydraFacial – a 477 sqm workspace located in the heart of Paris.
Agile planning was required, with one month to complete the design before HydraFacial France moved into its new HQ. Due to the tight schedule, Agilité began work on site whilst managing all aspects of the financial and building control regulations and approvals.
Understanding the client’s needs for a very high-quality design within a quick turnaround, Agilité worked with its regular, trusted supply chain to achieve a fast, quality project. This included managing coordination with landlords and contractors. The project involved structural challenges, including not being able to drill into the existing concrete walls, so innovative design engineering was required.
Given the extremely tight timescales, communication was a key part of the successful delivery. Our team was on site every day to manage the subcontractors, weekly meetings were held with the clients, and regular stakeholder site visits were held. Our project monitoring and reporting strategy kept all stakeholders updated with the progress of the delivery.
The client’s design needs, and the finishing touches were regularly being reshaped, some of which would ordinarily have a longer lead time than was feasible in the timeframe. Open dialogue meant conversations around last-minute requests were easier to have, and we were able to advise on acceptable alternatives, upholding customer expectations.
Agilité managed design development, alongside general contracting, on site project, construction and quality management, cost planning, and other auxiliary elements. The site was kept constantly clean, dust-free and waste was managed carefully for the regular visitors. Our agility and collaboration throughout the supply chain meant the office space was delivered on time – with no deviation from the agreed schedule or budget.
