NYK Group

JAC Group are thrilled to have successfully project managed NYK Group’s move into the 19th Floor of 1 Cabot Square (Canary Wharf). The c.20,000 sq ft of office space was handed over in CAT A condition. JAC provided project management, cost consultancy and contract administration services.

NYK made it clear at the very beginning of the project briefing period that sustainability needed to be a key consideration for the CAT B design development and have successfully achieved a Gold SKA rating under the SKA sustainability framework, which is an environmental assessment method, benchmark and standard for nondomestic fit-outs, led and owned by RICS.

The space makes full use of the companies longevity showcasing their beautiful historic artwork, shipping imaginary and stunning views this office is truly fantastic and is a true reflection of the NYK culture.

NYK Group retained JAC as project managers for the relocation of its European headquarters in Canary Wharf over the course of 2022.

This was a keenly watched project within the group, not only as it related to our flagship office in the region, but also as it involved a significant reduction in floor-space as well as design, build and technical fit-out to facilitate hybrid working.

We had no internal expertise in this area, so ran a tender to source an experienced project management consultant to lead us through the project. Zoe and her team stood out among the various agencies invited to bid, quickly understanding our objectives and corporate culture to create a strong rapport with our management team.

We engaged a number of contractors for the various elements of our project, who Shane and Lee were excellent in proactively and professionally managing in a no-nonsense, but collaborative way.

The timeline was very tight, the challenge this presented being compounded by supply issues arising out of the pandemic. Throughout the process the JAC team kept us informed as to progress and gave comfort that they had the numerous elements of the project were under control.

Shane and Lee felt like an extension of the NYK team, along with our internal project manager creating an outstanding spirit and drive among our contractors to deliver a high quality design and fit out, within budget and in-line with our schedule.

JAC’s contribution to the success of this project cannot be over-stated and we would have no hesitation in using them in the future.
