Cristiano Testi

Cristiano is a Principal Director in the interiors team at tp bennett who enjoys the full spectrum of a project, from inception to completion, working closely with clients to establish a strong vision, and then with consultants and contractors to ensure attention to detail and high-quality delivery. His dedication to excellence led to an invitation to join the national judging panel for the BCO National Awards.

His project experience ranges from PwC’s HQ refurbishment at Embankment Place, Johnson & Johnson’s London Innovation Centre, W. R. Berkley’s new HQ in the Scalpel and Clarksons’ relocation to St Katharine Docks, to delivering agile working standards for Nationwide and UBS.

More recently, he advised Société Générale on its pre-let at One Bank Street, before leading the design of the new premises. He supported Facebook on its lease at Rathbone Place, working with Frank Gehry on the concept and overseeing the successful completion of the project, and he is also advising the social media firm on its longer-term London projects.

Cristiano has been instrumental in developing and reinforcing our relationships with practice partners in the US, East and West Coast, and the Middle East, which have led to projects for PayPal in California, Spotify in Boston, Dubai, London and Amsterdam, and frameworks and opportunities globally.

Cristiano is passionate about the industry. He served as Chair of the BCO NextGen committee, which seeks to develop the next generation of talent, and is currently Chair of the BCO Urban Affairs Group.
