TGA were part of the design team to provide a complete project package for merging multiple offices into one managed by Identity Consult.

Project Summary

The scope of the project was to provide flexible working space for up to 700 people in a variety of work settings including hot desking, to support Thirteen Group’s transition to agile working.

GT3 Architects undertook extensive stakeholder engagement to map out the requirements for each team and space within the buildings, which allowed specific needs to be captured and accommodated in the design.


The project had a very challenging programme, and this was a key factor in appointing the main contractor. Following a competitive tender process, Key Property Solutions were appointed as Main Contractor under a design & Build contract.

KPS completed the project on budget, dealing with multiple change requests and were able to accelerate the programme to allow for early handover of some areas to assist with Thirteen training and commissioning.
