The open plan interiors have been designed by major international designers BDP with the aim of creating a collaborative neighbourhood working environment. While encouraging collaboration, the flexible design also allows for quiet working and furniture will be selected to accommodate the requirements for both collaborative and individual work. It will also be a ‘digital first’ workplace, enabling the organisation to reduce environmental footprint by using less paper wherever possible. Technology will also be used to improve user experience with everything from signing in visitors at reception to booking meetings, printing documents and buying lunch.
Facilities will include:
The vision for technology will focus on providing excellent user experiences and innovative ways of working – from the arrival experience through to a Triangle App, which can provide a range of services to help people get the most of the building. The vision isn’t about technology for technology’s sake but how it can be used to enhance how people will be able to interact with the building.
This area will include two studios for a range of classes such as yoga, pilates and mindfulness. There will also be two treatment/consultation rooms plus shower and changing facilities. There will be a dedicated wellness /quiet room on levels 1,2 and 3 that can be used for prayer, by nursing mothers or simply for anyone requiring a quiet space.
There will be several refreshment points per floor to choose from. As well as being able to grab a hot drink and collaborate with colleagues, everyone will be able to print, recycle and pick up stationery at these points. The vending machines will all dispense free fresh bean coffee. For those who prefer the barista style experience there will be a fresh coffee option. There will be two restaurant areas along with a ‘grab and go’ outlet across two levels and ‘street food’.
A dedicated seminar space boasting outstanding facilities will be included for internal and external events. The seminar space will provide room for 200 people and will also feature a control room. There will also be 120 meeting rooms, plus plenty of breakout areas for ad hoc meetings or quiet time. Many of the rooms will feature video conferencing, interactive white boards and screen sharing technology.
