“5 REASONS TO CHOOSE FEATHERSTONE CONSULTANTS”
FeatherStone offers a start-to-finish, bespoke service with turnkey solutions to meet each client’s needs – so that starts with listening to your requirements and getting a full understanding of what you require from your premises, not just today but as your business evolves and grows.
So before we start, we listen, gaining an understanding of…
• Your culture or personal needs • Your current needs • Your future needs • Your time scales • Your financial requirements
While many clients come to us after selecting their new premises or to refurbish existing ones, this can mean we are left trying to fit into or adapt to a space rather than finding a space or building that fits the business.
That is why our service can start with specifying your needs so that you can make an informed decision when buying a property, resulting in a smoother and possibly more cost effective transition into your new working environment.
Pre-lease appraisals, negotiations with landlords, planning and special assessments. We analyse in detail your current and future needs in terms of space, functional need and desired culture.
Interior design, space planning, interior decoration, architectural management, brand interpretation, lighting design, furniture, fixtures and equipment specification.
Programming, cost estimation, procurement and managing the build/move/relocation. The delivery of a project or capital venture is key; our project managers are passionate about time. We monitor this to ensure that additional cost is prevented or when necessary programs are unscaled to achieve exceptional results, all within timescale.
Electrical, HVAC, plumbing, IT and audio visual.
FeatherStone integrate electrical and HVAC design and specification, providing you with the latest innovation and trade advice. We look to our mechanical and electrical professionals to be NICEIC and ISO 9001: 2008 accredited and quality assured.
In the field of HVAC, Refrigeration and electrical many contractors in the UK provide excellent services and highly competitive pricing for standard jobs using off-the-shelf heating and refrigeration equipment backed by tried and tested engineering methods.
Yet, if a requirement arises that doesn’t quite fit in with the standard, many small outfits can’t afford to carry in-house consultants with the capability for custom design and refrigeration calculations. We use proven retained consultants to ensure this category is specified correctly and integrated into our design to maximize value through the tender process.
Often the last piece to be thought of, the physical relocation is often over looked. We have found that a dedicated consultant can add real value. Either in house or with our preferred partners, we can ensure that the office relocation, furniture, IT, filling or piano is packed, itemized or stored in an efficient and professional manner.
From ensuring Health and safety requirements are met to managing the facilities we will assist you from start to finish and on an ongoing basis. FeatherStone’s ethos is to make sure that we not only guide and support our clients with the right advice in a transparent manner, but we want to ensure we make long standing and meaningful business relationships.
We believe our customer service is where our heart is. To that end we offer support from concept to delivery and beyond. We can offer value and sourcing advice from the kitchen sink to the topping out party.
If it’s not on the list just ask!
At the core of all these design services FeatherStone’s ability to not only add value but our commitment to transparency and our belief that as your trusted property partner we should be there from the start to the finish of a project, whether you are a commercial owner or occupier or a residential developer. We acknowledge that the demand on our built environments has created a heightened level of sophistication and yet there is also a need to maximize return on investment.

Our ability to design and deliver creative solutions that compete at the highest level is achieved by harnessing design awareness with the pragmatism that is project management. This combination provides our clients with the guidance and expertise to achieve their visions.

As market leaders within financial services search and selection, recruiters Oliver James Associates prides itself on the quality of opportunities it offers candidates, its unrivalled network of senior professionals and international reach. When it came to refurbishing its premises it had particular challenges.
“Our brand is strong and has been successfully brought into the work environment,” says Nick Godson of Oliver James Associates. “However, we had particular requirements – we needed the design to realise our working culture and also our working needs over split floors. We also wanted to continue focusing on our work. As a partner, Simon from FeatherStone allowed us to get on with peace of mind and trust in the design to deliver what we required. The added benefit was that he realised value through a managed tendered procurement process."
Beats Dre Dr are ubiquitous – a global brand that is synonymous with quality sound and style. So as you would expect from a company with a global presence and half the market for premium headphones, its offices have to reflect that distinctive brand image. This is where FeatherStone Consultants came in - working within Beats existing brand design to deliver a stunning new premises on time and with cost savings.
“Without an established London office we needed a partner to create our office environment from scratch,” say Beats. “This saw FeatherStone interpreting our brand design ideas into reality and even though we were working within short timescales they were able to manage the programme to achieve our target date for occupancy and maintain the design intent. We were very happy with the results… and the savings achieved in their approach to procurement.”
In the highly competitive insurance market, intermediaries need to stand out from the rest and for Decus Insurance Brokers that means impeccable service across varying speciality lines of business including property, professional liability and binding authority programs. Its premises also needed to reflect these core values.
“We are very impressed with FeatherStone’s design interpretation of our brand – what we believe in as a company. The dynamics of our approach have been translated into the work environment very successfully. We were also supported beyond our fee engagement and it was a very hands-on delivery. This included dilapidation negotiations and Simon also integrated the existing supply chain into FeatherStone’s tendered approach - managing existing suppliers into the project. His management of the procurement process also enabled us to see real value and we are very pleased with the results.” John Harris CEO Decus Insurance Brokers
This Swedish restaurant near St Pauls has something of a reputation to live up to – even its name was inspired by the Romans, gourmands who knew how to enjoy food, wine and socialising. More than just a top class restaurant, Aveqia is also an exceptional venue and a unique dining experience – not a cookery course as such, but an inspiring place where people can create and enjoy food and drink. So how did FeatherStone help to realise this vision?
“This is Aveqia’s first venture outside of Sweden so we needed experienced design implementation of our own unique design brand and we also needed project management. FeatherStone rose to this challenge. They were fantastic at providing up-front advice and tackled the all issues and challenges we faced as we took the space from shell and core to high-end showpiece. Simon worked tirelessly with the designer, landlords, builders and all contractors involved in the project. FeatherStone also provided support in negotiations with the landlord in the building’s change of use from B1 to Sui Generis, the application of our alcohol licence and even helped us to find additional funding for the project. We recommend their services to anyone seeking a professional property partner.” David Berggren, Founder/CEO

We were very lucky to have been referred to such a knowledgeable and professional consultant agency to assist us with our first London office fit-out. “FeatherStone Consultants” is an impressive one stop shop. They take the phrase “project management” to a whole new level. Not just the obvious fit-out related services but they guided us to make sure we were complying with all UK building laws and certification processes. The consultancy’s wide network in the industry helped us engage with the right people for each job and their proactive approach to solving issues with all parties involved was impressive and comforting. We greatly appreciate their support from the beginning to the very end.
