A workspace ‘transformation’ project for international architectural practice Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, has been achieved at its new headquarters in the Leadenhall building, London.

The complete review of RHSP’s IT was aligned to business strategy requirements from across all departments and interested parties within the organisation.

The option designed by Modern Networks included technologies from leading vendors such as Cisco, NetApp and Citrix, encompassing a new data centre environment, full collaboration suite, including video, enterprise networking, Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) technology to introduce true workforce mobility, remote application streaming and wireless, all underpinned with the latest security systems.

Workforce mobility was seen as a key business criteria for RSHP. It wanted a more flexible working environment for its architects that would improve the workspace and provide a consistent, collaborative user experience from whichever office the 200 plus staff were situated.

“The business has gone through a complete IT transformation, using technology to help us work better internally and with our customers, accelerating our decision making and agility,” explained Mark Read, IT Co-ordination Manage, RHSP. “We can now even use this technology to collaborate on projects with external consultants during building design projects. Modern Networks understood our business and listened to key groups and this collaboration combined with its technical experience, was the real value for us. Our partnership continues as they work alongside our IT team to manage the IT estate to maximise the potential of the new technology now in place.”
