WELL Certified Gold.
How good does your workplace make you feel? Decades ago, this probably wasn’t a question anyone considered… but as we understand more and more about the impact of our internal environments, employers are taking conscious steps to create spaces that people thrive in.
When designed intelligently, efficiently, and with users at their heart, workplace buildings have the power to transform the appeal, productivity, and future of a business. For a multi-national firm like Deloitte with a fundamental design aspiration to “drive cultural change”, it was clear this would be no traditional office, in fact it would be an industry-defining world first...

Deloitte’s commitment was clear from the outset. We set out on the journey united by our collective vision for what the building could achieve.
This translated into a truly ambitious target: to be the world’s first workplace to achieve both BREEAM Outstanding (the highest measure for sustainable design) and WELL Certified Gold (a global building standard for health & wellbeing).
While there was a steep learning curve for all involved, together we provided consistent and practical advice to the client and wider project team, always on hand whatever the query. The aim to be the world’s first workplace to achieve both BREEAM and WELL targets drove an enhanced level of collaboration between the project team, and we developed close connections with the client, architect and the technical team at the International WELL Building Institute.
The information available to users is exceptional. From kiosks in the building’s entrance that provide agile workspace availability on floors, to air quality information and integrated room-booking software... the intelligent design is one of the first projects in the UK to deliver building integrations of this nature, and at this scale.
And our performance support doesn’t stop there: 620 sensors now monitor the quality of the indoor environment: from air particulates, chemicals and acoustics to the daylight levels and temperature. It was a first for a project of this type, and allows us to continuously optimise the building, ensuring it delivers the best possible environment for Deloitte’s people.
Awards include BCO London 2019: Fit Out of Workplace, BREEAM 2019: Commercial Project – Post Construction, Constructing Excellence SECBE 2019: Building project >£10m, Better Society 2019: Built Environment and Corenet Global 2019: Sustainable Leadership Award to name a few.
You have been instrumental in helping us to create workable solutions to deliver our aspirational intelligent building, within a challenging business and contractual environment.

Gaining BREEAM Outstanding is challenging, but to exceed it by nearly 10% while also achieving WELL Certified Gold is simply tremendous. We couldn’t have hoped for better.
