Acando is a consultancy company that works closely with clients to discover and implement technology-based improvements in businesses, keeping sustainability in mind. It currently employs more than 1,000 professionals, working in five different countries in Europe.


According to its mission statement, Acando sees:

“A world where mediocrity in project delivery is not tolerated.”

Challenge:

Acando was looking for a high quality office fit-out in Camberley, London as part of a major move to new premises there. The move was a pressurised one; it was imperative for the fit-out to be constructed within two weeks of work commencing, or Acando would not have a place to work.

Solution:

JLR Construction provided a quote and a selection of design ideas for Acando to consider when deciding upon the layout of the fit-out. We had to compete against local contractors to secure the project and, thanks to our promises to meet deadlines, the capabilities of our skilled team, Acando gave the contract to JLR.

Our team had the project completed with time to spare, finishing the work on day 11, while also managing building control for our client at the same time.


Acando was extremely impressed with the way we met the challenge. The company’s Managing Director UK, Phil Jacklin, said:
“This is the second time we have used JLR for an office fit-out. And the reason we have used them again is because not only are they good at what they do, they’re pragmatic, work around our impossibly tight timescales, have never once complained about anything we have put on a snagging list and were around 1/3 of the price of other companies who quoted for the job. A professional job done at a fair price.”
