Ogilvy and Mather Advertising

Ogilvy & Mather is one of the eight largest advertising networks in the world, with more than 450 offices in 169 cities. Our scope of work for this multiphase renovation of an existing three floors included minor demolition, new offices and boardroom, new painting and carpeting throughout. All work was completed in the evenings and throughout weekends to allow for the client to maintain daily operations.

PROJECT CHALLENGES

  1. No dedicated swing space
  2. Close coordination with multiple vendors
  3. Tight timelines

OUTCOME

With the lack of swing space, staff had to be displaced temporarily while their area was refreshed so achieving live dates for each phase was critical. Flat Iron worked closely with Straticom and Ogilvy’s Facility Management team to ensure staff were packed, furniture was moved and/or lifted to allow for painting and carpeting. All contents and staff were moved back to the new environment without incident. Each phase was four days in duration starting on a Thursday evening with a live date of Tuesday morning. With over 15 phases in total, maintaining momentum was critical.
