SunGard IT infrastructure



Leatherhead, Surrey

Project value

£2 million | Time scale: Four months

The client

SunGard is a global leader in software and processing solutions for financial services, higher education and the public sector. It also helps information-dependent enterprises of all types to ensure the continuity of their business.

The design brief

To transform a 64,000 sq ft empty warehouse into a state-of-the art disaster recovery centre, with office space to be used as needed by large blue-chip organisations.

Project delivery

This was a design and build contract, with Bbi required to supply and install everything from office furniture, lifts, new ceilings and bathroom facilities. With limited room available to create office space, Bbi was able to double the building’s potential occupancy to up to 1,800 staff with the installation of mezzanine flooring. The finished design included vibrant upholstery, complemented by coloured wall lighting and additional feature lighting concealed within curved ceilings to create a pleasant working atmosphere. A replica of Doctor Who’s TARDIS was installed at the end of the corridor as a humorous design feature. Debbie Barnett, account manager at Bbi, said:“Not only did we have to develop creative solutions to the lack of available space, the additional challenge was to create a pleasant and productive, home-away-from-home working environment for the staff.”
