The wellbeing of the employees that work inside office buildings is essential for productivity and innovative thinking. Our surroundings influence us as human beings by impacting our mood, creativity, way of thinking, and even our way of working. This is why designing new office buildings is a complex process where a lot of issues have to be taken into account.

The look and feel an office building is an integral part of a company’s identity. Creating office environments that attract and inspire workers are therefore sound investments for businesses and building owners. 

Creating attractive work environments 

Our philosophy for commercial buildings is to place user needs first by designing workplaces that optimise indoor climate, maximise sunlight, whilst making room for human interaction and collaboration. 

Our building strategies enable tightly programmed construction on complex sites. Our designs respond to market needs and evolving construction technology. 

Optimised and commercially viable office buildings 

We understand the relationship between a building’s structure and services. Combining advanced analytical tools with a complete palate of technical expertise, our integrated approach optimises offices buildings. For instance, by incorporating low energy systems, and maximising lettable floor area. 

Improving efficiency and productivity with smart technology 

We are also experienced in applying smart technology in commercial buildings to increase energy efficiency, reduce overheads, and enhance work environments. Examples include implementing smart lighting that becomes warmer or cooler depending on the time of day and an employee’s personal preferences. Such environmental technology affects the production of melatonin in staff, which studies have shown increases productivity.
