JAC Group were appointed to provide project management and cost consultancy services for Asahi Beer’s office move from 1 Forge End, Woking to their new space at Asahi House, Chertsey Road, Woking. Asahi took on the whole building comprising of 35,121 sq ft over 5 floors.

As with many large companies we work with, the JAC team faced governance challenges as the client underwent three organisational changes during the project. Covid meant that a firm hand was needed to guide our client and give them the information required allowing them to make decisions on time.

This was the first time Asahi have managed a whole building as opposed to having a floor/s in a multi-tenanted space and this drives different challenges into the project and the ongoing management of the office all of which were considered in the design phase.

Numerous structural elements were considered on the project for the beer cellar, bar, full catering kitchen and café. These areas all needed noise reduction techniques in place to comply with the acoustic requirements.

The extensive change management was carried out internally by Asahi with support from the JAC team.

At Asahi we like to set ourselves challenges and moving office is always going to be up there. Caroline and the team at JAC project managed the whole move with great expertise, unwavering support, and a solution driven mindset. JAC Group stayed on top of all the moving parts throughout the project, never missing even the most minor details and working with a multitude of stakeholders at Asahi that changed more than once. Caroline was always able to bring new people to the team up to speed quickly and answer all questions with precision. It has to be noted that this project started in a normal world and very quickly changed to be managed virtually yet Caroline’s organisation, adaptability and rigour have still delivered the office on time and to the desired quality which is highly commendable.

The team at JAC project managed the whole move with great expertise, unwavering support, and a solution driven mindset.
