EY Edinburgh

MCM has enjoyed an open and creative relationship with EY for over a decade. During this period we have spanned a number of major team changes and addressed issues at both a strategic and operational level resulting in a HQ building that has: 

  • Flexed to support a population that has grown from a headcount of approximately 3000 at move in to a building that currently supports a population of 5800 (March 09) 
  • Achieved a sharing ratio of 1: 1.68 (workstation : headcount)
  • Enabled the in-house team to deliver accommodation cost reductions equivalent to 13% per desk and 26% per headcount over a 4 year period up to year end 08/09

The first major project undertaken with EY was the relocation of the London business from a portfolio of 11 buildings spread across central London into a new, 30,566sqm client facing building at No 1 More London. 

One of the earliest activities undertaken by the project team was to agree the project aims against which the project team would evaluate the developing design and workplace offer and around which the user consultation plan could be framed. 6 key criteria were identified:

  • Fast, flexible, agile
  • Totally integrated with no barriers to learning
  • Truly client driven and account centric
  • Restless to innovate, embracing change
  • Value for money
