In December 2008, Como was appointed as the main contractor on the fit out for Fidessa, a financial software and services company based in the heart of London's financial district. The fit out encompassed over 60,000 sqft of space over eight levels from Cat A to Cat B.

The scope of works on levels 2 to 6 involved general office space, including meeting rooms, breakout areas and the installation of an MCR and SER's while levels 7 to 8 incorporated more technical space.

Designed by Pringle Brandon, these levels comprised the fit out of high specification client meeting and dining facilities, training rooms, management space, high level AV, installation of a generator and a feature staircase.

Some of the key challenges on the project included the road closure needed for the crane lift to install the generator and the major structural alterations needed to accommodate the new feature staircase. Along with this a substantial amount of AV had to be installed to accommodate training and video conferencing requirements.
