LOM’s industrial workplace for Tesco’s Clerkenwell based digital team is a finalist in this year’s British Council for Offices’ (BCO) awards Fit Out of Workplace category in the London and South East region.
The refurbished tobacco warehouse provides 2,700sqm of flexible workspace over six levels for 300 members of staff. The original structure and architectural details of the historic building have been retained and complemented by the use of industrial finishes, exposed services elements and an eclectic mix of furniture to bring character to the interior.
The finished working environment supports agile working by incorporating a large number of different work settings for activities away from the desk. The carefully considered spaces range from private telephone booths to open spaces for presentations and events, encouraging staff collaboration and dynamic, creative productivity. Consistent technology interfaces across varied settings enables complete agility for teams to move and flex in size to accommodate the rapidly changing demands of a hi-tech workplace.
Established in 1992, the BCO awards provide public recognition, celebrate excellence and acknowledge best practice and innovation in office space. The London and South East winners will be announced on 26 April 2016 at the awards ceremony taking place at the Hilton on Park Lane.
