Showcase was appointed to work on this project alongside four design teams IA, Citterio-Viel, Perkins & Will & Gensler as the FF&E Consultant for PTC, providing furniture selection, procurement & supply across 8 floors and over 1.2m Sq Ft.


Showcase was taken on board to create new furniture standards representing a lighter more European aesthetic and delivering a workspace that supports an increasing move towards agile based working.

One of the critical elements was integrating with the separate interior design teams and ensuring that we supported them to achieve their design aspirations.

This scope included considering connectivity in the open plan and meeting rooms and producing a set of connectivity standards.

We delivered the procurement strategy for the London office and we also delivered a global strategy procurement piece for task seating.
