Work has begun on a 10-week project which will see the creation of collaborative workspace for the benefit of our occupiers.
As organisations look ahead to welcoming staff back into the workplace, Q11 is the latest building at Quorum Park to be given a revamp to help meet the evolving needs of office occupiers.
Designed by FaulknerBrowns, the project will include relaxed pod areas and a large communal space which can be used by Q11 ground floor tenants. Two large new boardroom style meeting rooms will also be created that can be combined into one large seminar room which will be available for both Quorum tenants and the general public.
New and existing ground floor tenants, such as global property and construction consultancy Gleeds and managed IT provider Technology Services Group (TSG), will also benefit from two new kitchen areas as well as a range of new furniture.
The suspended ceiling is being stripped out and neon strip lighting will be added to create a bright and stylish space that is scheduled for completion before the end of April.
The six-figure project is being managed by NEBS Projects Ltd, and will complement the building’s existing features, which include large glazed facades to flood the space with natural light, water saving WCs, shower facilities and high-speed internet.
Jonathan Ryder, director at NEBS, said: “Over the past few years we’ve seen changes to the way people wish to use their office space, and the Covid-19 pandemic will see further changes to the working environment and our desire for flexibility.
“The office buildings at Quorum are well-placed to accommodate this ongoing evolution, with large, open plan floorplates that can be customised and adapted to the working ethos and lifestyles of those using it.”
Mark Rabinowitz, director of Shelborn Asset Management, added: “We’re incredibly proud of the changes we’ve made at Quorum Park, which saw 100,000 sq.ft. of lettings completed last year as new tenants embraced the park’s facilities and support services.
“We’re committed to making ongoing investments to improve the working lives of all members of the Quorum Park community, and to provide the flexibility and appeal that modern organisations are looking for when choosing where to base themselves.”
The Q11 suites range in size from 1,000 sq. ft. to 3,000 sq. ft. and there are five spaces currently available to prospective occupants.
Darren Purvis, associate at FaulknerBrowns Architects added: “There has been a real shift in the expectations of office workers and Q11 is being adapted to offer tenants greater opportunities in the way they work & meet with the creation of collaborative space, flexible presentation areas, as well as two social zones encouraging informal space to interact.
“As we come out of the pandemic, the way in which we work will continue to adapt with office space required to be flexible to adapt to change.”
