Corporate and office

As the pandemic drives change in the global office sector, we are working with clients to navigate the evolving environment, delivering agile and sustainable workspaces that are fit for the future.

Redefining the workplace

Through the pandemic, many businesses necessarily adopted home working and virtual collaboration using online tools. This shift looks set to have longer-term implications for the office sector, accelerating moves to create a more human-centric, healthy, flexible and agile workplace.

To meet the challenges, occupiers are reconfiguring existing space to safely accommodate returned staff, while also looking to assess longer-term workplace locations and space requirements.

In some regions, increases in vacancy rates have multiplied the options for occupiers considering new locations. Tenants have more choice and are therefore demanding more from their landlords in terms of sustainability provisions, technology infrastructure and amenity spaces.

Corporates are looking to tailor solutions to their specific business and team demands, allowing for such approaches as hybrid home/office working patterns or hub-and-spoke working, which combines a central office with regional locations.

Environmental, social and governance (ESG) investment priorities, greener policies and user demands are driving the creation of more sustainable workplace environments. As carbon reduction commitments and sustainability targets intensify, occupiers will only lease or build offices that enable them to realise their corporate-level goals.

Corporate and office services

Our corporate and office services support the full programme and project lifecycle, extending from pre-feasibility through to set up and delivery. In the early stages, we work with clients to understand individual business needs and key drivers, including sustainability, wellbeing and technology.

Throughout projects and programmes, we secure best value and performance from the supply chain and drive delivery of client objectives.

The Bangalore Phase 3 SBO project is a fantastic story and a great example of taking lessons learnt seriously. Delivered ahead of schedule, under budget and with zero incidents. Turner & Townsend have been outstanding and I have been consistently impressed at the way they and the wider contracted staff worked together as ‘One Team’, which allowed for complete transparency.
