Microsoft has been a long-standing Client of WDL since 1998. As part of the UK and Ireland portfolio that we managed for a total of 15 years, the Microsoft UK Headquarters in Thames Valley Park went through various structural changes as the campus developed. Throughout the years WDL worked alongside Microsoft across their five Thames Valley Park buildings, providing turnkey services which included project management, management of the online real estate tool, test fits, space planning, development of design concepts & tender packs, moves, change management and FF&E procurement and installation. To meet Microsoft’s needs for constant churn and re-arrangement WDL provided a tailored on-site solution with a team of project managers, space planners, moves and change managers based at the client’s campus. Our knowledge of organisational structures enabled strong stakeholder management throughout the project process. This is combined with the understanding of project management processes to ensure Microsoft’s objectives are always the priority of the on-site team. As part of the campus master planning and development, we would get involved in a variety of different projects, from the refurbishment of existing areas or revitalisation of underutilised areas to the design and implementation of completely new areas.
