Cordless engaged to deliver IT and AV Consultancy for London Relocation of McCann Worldgroup UK
McCann Worldgroup is a leading global marketing services agency with an integrated network of advertising agencies in over 120 countries.
McCann Worldgroup UK will be relocating 11 of its London-based agencies from multiple legacy buildings across London to a single new building at 135 Bishopsgate, occupying 140,000 sq ft. The move is set for the end of 2019, with 1,200 people moving.
Cordless has been employed as IT and AV Consultancy partner, to support McCann Worldgroup UK from the initial strategic phase of the relocation. Cordless will be exploring the technology requirements of the business to recommend new workplace technology ideas that marry with the company culture and project aspirations.
The agencies are being brought together for the first time to boost interaction and collaboration between brands.
Stephen Guy, Chief Integration Officer at McCann Worldgroup UK said:
“Our clients want greater integration - they’re looking at how to efficiently connect all the different marketing disciplines. By co-locating we will be able to better focus our collaborations where they really matter.”
Cordless will be working with McCann Worldgroup UK and its team across its different agencies to get a clear and combined view of the wants and needs for the technology for the new workplace with regards to the IT physical infrastructure, the comms room and the workplace AV technology. Cordless will also be conducting a strategic review of the networking strategy and communications plan. The recommendations developed at this stage will then drive into the technology design, procurement and IT relocation project management phases.
A key criteria is to create a space for the agencies to interact as much as possible, but at the same time allowing each to retain its own character.
Cordless looks forward to helping the client realise its vision to create a new workplace built for collaboration that will showcase the work of McCann Worldgroup UK’s brands.
Mark Lund, Chief Executive Officer of McCann Worldgroup UK, confirmed the relocation was intended to help spark better collaboration between agencies:
“We’re delighted to be bringing the McCann Worldgroup UK family together under one roof. Our stunning new London home at Bishopsgate will provide us with the opportunity to grow individually and as a network, while the building’s location at the intersection of Shoreditch, Spitalfields and The City will connect us to some of the most important creative, tech and historic hubs that London has to offer.”
