Seamless technology also lies at the heart of the design, offering employees flexibility of working style. Practical and diverse furniture includes integrated IT, which encourages employees to get together in an informal and comfortable setting, while the breakout areas feature dedicated tech bars for drop-in sessions and troubleshooting and all meeting rooms include AV capabilities.
In addition to open-plan areas a hub of meeting rooms offer the option of privacy and quiet in a more formal setting, ensuring areas for focus – while a second area offers more collaborative and informal meeting spaces, giving employees much-needed variety in their working environment and helping to ensure formal meeting rooms are free to be reserved when needed.
As a business with vast experience in real estate and infrastructure development, sustainability was also high on the agenda. ‘Sustainability is central to our vision, so the use of natural, and ethically-sourced materials was very important to us,’ said Sarah Gledhill, Head of Risk, Technology and Operations at InfraRed. ‘Peldon Rose did an excellent job fulfilling our requirements to allow us to apply successfully for the ‘Ska Gold’ accreditation by having minimal waste to landfill and using responsibly felled trees for the timber floors, carbon negative cork acoustic wall finishes and domestically-manufactured carpet.’
