“On behalf of The Dairy Farm Company Limited, I am writing to confirm our appreciation and commendation for a job well done with our corporate relocation project.
The challenge presented in February 1999 was for INARC to take over from an incumbent design team and help re-evaluate the entire project, from defining space standards to strategic growth planning, from creative layout design to budget evaluation and from contractor selection to fitout programme. This task was necessary to validate the true needs of the Wellcome, Mannings and 7-Eleven banners, plus the DFI Group head office and various Shared Services Departments. All were combined together, from 13 locations around Hong Kong, into a new 100,000 square feet corporate facility_all within a fixed, five month schedule.
To your credit, you rose to meet those challenges and indeed, in many aspects of your role, you exceeded expectations. INARC’s philosophy of 'measure twice, cut once' proved a most efficient and cost-effective way to resolve the many design challenges.”
