We were challenged to complete the fit out of new London headquarters for specialty (re)insurance group Chaucer. Occupying 44,000 sq ft of office space, the new HQ 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
