ChargePoint (CP) brings electric vehicle (EV) charging to more people and places than ever before with the world’s largest and most open EV charging network. They design, build, and support all of the technology that powers this network, from charging station hardware to energy management software to a mobile app. Their work transforms transportation and energy use by helping more people choose to drive electric.

Following the opening of their European hub in Amsterdam, Chargepoint were very keen to continue their expansion by opening a UK HQ office. Phoenix Construction were appointed to work alongside Colliers International, acting as Employer’s representative to design, construction, furniture supply and programme management and to execute CP’s objectives. The office space had been sourced and located, with test fits undertaken to determine that the space would suit the needs of the business, day one and going forward.

We worked closely with their US-based team, as well as some of their European representatives to ensure that corporate standards, in terms of branding, colour, workspace standards were met. In addition to the office space, CP required a fully operating, state of the art electrical test laboratory, linked to charging stations located directly outside. The facility required a significant upgrade incoming power supplies to accommodate the requirements.
