Deloitte wins BCO Award - Best Fit Out of Workplace

30 Apr 2019  |  Design  |  Trends

Congratulations to Deloitte for winning 1 New Street Square the Best Fit Out of Workplace BCO Award! We are delighted that this project got the recognition it deserves.

According to the judges “The refurbishment of Deloitte’s London Headquarters has created a new space for the business that drives efficiency, enables flexibility and improves connectivity between colleagues. The judges noted the office helps Deloitte attract and retain talent, with improved amenities and smart technology integrated throughout. The BCO judging panel were also impressed by the building’s sustainability and wellness accreditation, with the project achieving an outstanding BREEAM score and WELL Gold certification.”

The 275,000 sq. ft office space can accommodate more than 5,500 people, with capacity for up to 700 clients across 16 floors. The design and fit out of 1 New Street Square is the culmination of a wider Deloitte real estate strategy to redefine the way its people and clients work in its office space.

With a view to consolidate their real estate but still coping with the flexibility of increased capacity, the goal was to create efficiency and choice. Sketch worked closely with Deloitte and ID:SR (Sheppard Robson's interior design team) and developed solutions providing a wide range of work settings.

The results speak for themselves as the office space benefits from a varied selection of work settings, brand identity throughout, exceptional client spaces and client experience, as well as bringing biophilia and wellbeing aspects into all spaces.

Beth Harrison, Sales Director at Sketch comments: “with over 27,000 items of furniture and 50% ratio of height adjustable desking, the programme has achieved an exceptional end user experience from the integration of tech into furniture elements, maintaining a clean and fluid aesthetic. A huge amount of work has been put into translating Deloitte’s vision into reality and I am glad it paid off.”

Fritha Selwyn-Jones, Workplace Design Manager at Deloitte, concludes: “I am delighted that this project won a BCO award. We have completed ground breaking work in collaboration with Hoare Lea and ID:SR as we targeted WELL Gold and BREEAM Outstanding accreditations and I am proud of what we collectively achieved. Deloitte is a fantastic partner and it’s a privilege to have been part of delivering an award-winning scheme, and what’s more I get to work in it every day!”
