Realising the workplace of the future
Working in partnership
A world-class workplace experience for employees and clients that facilitates new hybrid working patterns and promotes wellbeing, collaboration and productivity.
CBRE UK Advisory Services has unveiled its new headquarters at Henrietta House, London, W1 following an extensive redevelopment programme undertaken in partnership with Lazari Investments and leading design and architectural practice MoreySmith. The new design delivers a world-class workplace experience for employees and clients that facilitates new hybrid working patterns and promotes wellbeing, collaboration and productivity.
In 2018, CBRE partnered with landlord Lazari Investments and leading design and architectural practice MoreySmith to deliver its vision for a workspace that would provide a blueprint for future office design and more agile working patterns.
CBRE has occupied Henrietta House since 2011 and our proposal to increase the size of the building by 45% on a longer lease term drove greater value creation for our landlord Lazari Investments for this prime London island site and the entire redevelopment including CBRE's fit out over the entire larger building footprint, was fully funded by Lazari and delivered on our aspirations for our future workplace.
Experts from over 20 different CBRE teams have advised on the project including Planning, Advisory & Transaction, ESG & Sustainability, Digital Strategy, Project Management, Occupier Workplace Strategy and Facilities Management.
Engaging with architect and designers MoreySmith, the creation of a 40,500 sq ft extension to the rear of the existing building was proposed to allow the new headquarters to offer increased levels of amenity and prioritise community, collaboration and wellbeing through its human-centric design.
The building aligns to CBRE’s own ESG strategy and is on track to achieve BREEAM Excellent which recognises the building’s environmental performance as being amongst the top 10% of UK non-domestic buildings, delivering on CBRE’s ESG agenda to be a net zero business by 2030. In addition, the building will submit to become WELL Certified Platinum, the highest rating level in the WELL Building Standard. Henrietta House will become one of the UK’s largest WELL Platinum, fully fitted projects.
