We wanted to create a work environment that would foster collaboration, conversation and the cross-pollination of ideas across multidisciplinary teams in order to support clients through our integrated offer. This required a highly-flexible physical space that would enable staff to work according to their personal preferences and changing needs, with design features, amenities and policies that would promote wellness.
An open, central staircase provides vertical connectivity and encourages movement and cross discipline interaction. Spacious breakout areas around the staircase provide social hubs, with amenities to promote relaxation and areas to collaborate or work alone, according to employees’ changing needs and preferences. Good-quality coffee, herbal tea and sparkling and filtered water are freely available in large kitchen areas, with generous seating at every level. An in-house cafeteria serves healthy breakfast, lunch and snack options.
Teams and departments sit in designated neighbourhoods, with workstations, collaborative project spaces, quiet rooms and meeting rooms forming flexible and dynamic spaces. A quarter of workstations can be used in either a seated or standing position.
Enhancements have been made to the building to increase cycle provision, with additional cycle racks for standing and folding bicycles, new lockers and a laundered towel service.
