Chaucer Headquarters is a finalist in the Mixology Awards 2022 in the category Workplace Interiors (Over 30,000 - 70,000 sq ft)
Designed during the pandemic, our scheme evolved to reflect the shift from traditional desk-based work to more flexible and collaborative ways of working. The headquarters accommodates over 450 employees and plays an important part of Chaucer’s development as a leading global underwriting group.
Our Design Strategy Unit team undertook a detailed workplace strategy study to understand Chaucer’s requirements for the new office. A bespoke Workstyle Profiler alongside other Design Strategy Unit tools were used to determine employees working patterns, user requirements and employee profiles. During the design phase a further study was undertaken to incorporate changes to working patterns as a result of the pandemic. Consequently more spaces for collaboration, social interaction and training were added to the new office landscape.
Winners will be revealed at the at the Mixology22 Awards ceremony on 23 June in London.
