New London Architecture

Reimagining the office


Friday 19 July 2024
10:00 - 11:00

Join us for a webinar where we will explore how to ensure workplaces are fit-for-purpose in the long-term.
The last five years have seen a dramatic transformation in the workplace, and this session will delve into how to ensure existing and new office buildings are fit for purpose in the long term. 
With new patterns and hybrid work, offices are no longer just places for work but spaces for socialisation and collaboration. Future-proofing workplaces need to meet employees' expectations in terms of sustainability, wellbeing, and flexibility. What role can adaptive reuse and retrofit play? What are the benefits of mixed-use developments in connecting workspaces with local communities and economies?
