The Situation

Alvarez & Marsal is a global professional services firm specializing in turnaround management and performance improvement. They’ve been working for high-profile companies around the world since 1983.  The firm launched a major digital transformation program to modernize its offices around the world, including all of its AV equipment for its new London headquarters at 16-18 Finsbury Circus. A&M engaged Align to lead this initiative.


The Challenge
As with any significant office fit-out, our client faced the daunting task to select the right vendors, as well as critical decisions as to which office equipment to purchase.  These investments would be critical to A&M’s employee experience, its ability to remain competitive and as an overall extension of the firm’s brand as a thought leader and innovator within the professional services space.

The Solution

Align conducted a series of interviews to understand how the headquarter spaces would ultimately be used for day to day operations. We met with key stakeholders, including architects and building engineers, to understand how to appropriately utilize each area.

The Results

We customized a design that was fit for A&M’s unique business needs. Overall we have installed total of 52 Huddle rooms, a mix of 10p, 8p, 6p and 4p meeting rooms, a large boardroom, a large training room, and several types of collaboration areas. Align has gone on to complete many additional A&M locations concerning in its vast US real estate portfolio, including Dallas, TX and Washington DC.
