There is substantial evidence which demonstrates that both the design and the environmental quality of an office impact on the productivity of its occupants. Adam Mactavish, Operations Director at Currie & Brown will present research from the BCO, Defining and Measuring Productivity in Offices. The report examines how the physical design and management of offices can influence both individual and organisational productivity. It provides a definition of a productive workplace, how productivity can be measured and the steps that can be taken to make the most of available opportunities to improve performance.

Following the research presentation, Rock Townsend will introduce the refurbishment, reorganisation and radical uplift of the Berghaus headquarters. It is a unique example of the power and ability of architecture through team collaboration to transform a tired office into a new vision of sustainable creative workplace, which is delivering significant business rewards through new ways of working and staff wellbeing. The client’s choice to remain on an unloved industrial park and to breathe new life into a tired and inefficient building is a powerful story that has resulted in an exciting example of modern workspace.

The event will close with drinks and and the opportunity to network with fellow members and industry peers.
