Scope, the well-known disability charity, have successfully relocated their headquarters to HereEast, at the iconic Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park site.

B&M provided Technical Project Management, Employer’s Agent and Quantity Surveying services, and over saw the Cat B fit out of the office spaces, which included a variety of different working environments.
The office fit out included open-plan agile working spaces, lockers, and meeting booths. The scheme provide 8 bespoke meeting rooms, a “town-hall” meeting space and kitchen/rest areas for the 250 staff occupying the space. A “Changing Spaces” toilet provision was also provided, designed to support full accessibility.

Their relocation also enables Scope to collaborate with the existing community on the HereEast campus, including the Global Disability Innovation Hub, which works with businesses, academia and charities to improve the lives of disabled people.

"Our new office at Here East isn't just about new desks and a new location. It's a fundamental change in how we work together."

Collaboration.

Working with the design & fit out contractor, Loop Interiors, the team developed a space to encourage communication, collaboration and a social, healthy environment.

This included standing desks, areas for informal meetings and quiet areas, all within an open plan setting. This was achieved by realising the requirements of Scope’s staff through engagement at concept stages, and bringing in new working practices, such as Agile Working methods.

Client’s Vision.

Scope’s new strategy, “Everyday Equality”, sets out radical plans for how the charity will campaign, so that disabled people have the same opportunities as everyone else. It also sets out an ambitious plan for the future of the organisation. The new office will support new technology, new flexible ways of working and new working practices.

Their five-year strategy, sets out how they will work to drive social change so that disabled people have the same opportunities as everyone else. Life today is much harder for the 13 million disabled people in this country than it needs to be. Disabled people have told the charity the challenges they face are changing; the barriers they face and the support they need at home, in education or at work, and encounter negative attitudes, unnecessary extra costs and huge pressures on family life. Scope’s vision is to change to meet those challenges with them.
