Rolls-Royce’s new London HQ fit-out completes
Waterman are delighted to announce the completion of the fit-out for Rolls-Royce PLC’s new global headquarters in London. Located on the 3rd floor of the Kings Place building, also home for The Guardian Media Group, the new 11,300 ft²-office is strategically positioned in the tech hub of Kings Cross opposite Google’s new headquarters, becoming the London base for approximately 60 staff, including members of the Board and Executive Leadership Team.
Working closely with a project team led by Turner & Townsend, we designed the building services and acoustics for this vibrant fit-out which provides Rolls-Royce with a cutting-edge workspace. The design, by global design firm Unispace, has created a community feel focused on improving collaboration, whilst also promoting agile working.
Supported by a range of work settings including private meeting/call/video booths, sit & stand desks and informational meeting spaces, ‘usable’ technology is at the forefront of the scheme. Video conferencing facilities and telepresence suite have been installed alongside SMART meeting room and desk booking systems.
With an ambitious sustainability agenda, the design features demand-based controls for the multi-purpose meeting room suite. These control fresh air rates to match occupancy levels and work alongside energy efficient occupancy and daylight-sensing LED lighting throughout to reduce energy consumption.
Mark Terndrup, Director of Waterman Building Services, said; “We are delighted to see the successful completion of this exciting fit-out. We worked closely with Rolls-Royce to create a flexible workplace which is responsive to their technology-enabled, fast-paced business culture. This fit-out is of tremendous importance to our client and we are proud to have been part of their team.”
