The new space is 31/32 Alfred Place in Fitzrovia London; the building will become their new head office for Dennis Publishing. As part of the project Dennis wanted to implement a more agile workplace strategy; Create assisted Dennis with determining the parameters for the agile working strategy which included holding change workshops with the business representatives. Collaboration, cross departmental knowledge share and interaction were key drivers for working in a different way and were promoted through the business as part of the process to move to new ways of working.
Another specific project goal was to reset the values and culture of the business now and for the future. Cool and impactful features were designed and introduced. Points of interest were created for staff and visitors alike and throughout the building there are key and memorable features.
The new workplace is flexible and provides room for growth, seamlessly and fluidly; integrating simple technology solutions across the spaces.
