Modern office development increasingly involves providing more that somewhere to work. Successful developments help to blend attractive public realms with quality leisure and retail outlets. The research focuses on the role of office buildings in place creation, examines the changing trends, how occupiers can use their buildings to reach out to the community, the positive impact on recruitment and retention of staff as well as the implications for design, development and investment.

The report looks at the role of offices in urban regeneration and how they can create a distinct identity within and beyond the neighbourhood.
