Commercial and Mixed Use

We have delivered tens of millions of square metres of office space for investors, developers and occupiers around the world. Our work focuses on office and mixed-use buildings and includes new build and refurbishment projects, high-rise developments and business parks, from basic to luxury.

For every commercial project we have two objectives: to create the best working environment for people, and deliver higher return on investment for the client, throughout the lifetime of the building. We understand the varied requirements, challenges and business aspirations of clients.

Better Working Environments

Working environments have an important impact on human health, productivity and quality of life. That’s why our goal is always to create a space where people want to come to work. We address the total environmental comfort of the occupants, which includes everything from access to natural light, glare control, air motion and humidity, to the freshness and quality of the air.

There is a powerful business case for better environments that can boost work productivity. Staff costs can account for as much as 90% of a company’s expenditures, so even a small improvement can make a big difference.

Higher Return on Investment for Commercial Buildings

Our projects are exemplars of high-quality environments and they enable employers to attract and retain the best staff. They also provide flexibility to allow businesses to adapt to changing markets and new ways of working. The ability to respond to fast-changing workplace trends is key to maintaining the longer-term value of a building.

The spaces we design are also flexible. There are solid commercial reasons for office buildings to be able to accommodate different occupier groups to make them as leasable as possible.
