After the Olympics were over, West Ham United Football Club took over the stadium and we were invited by the fit-out specialists, Portview, to fit the floors in the directors’ area.
The space included a large reception area of some 500 sq m which led on to several smaller director or sponsor rooms. The main floor area was designed to very specific design in the claret, gold and blue of West Ham colours. The floor was supplied ‘engineered’ and the pattern had to be precisely applied. The task was difficult in that start dates were constantly being shuffled and, in the end, we had to complete in a quite cramped timetable. We are not allowed to show pictures of the work we did.
