  • A central hub

    Network Rail Southern Region has over 7,000 staff members across multiple offices and depots. They wanted to create a central hub for the consolidation of some of their teams, supporting collaboration and further integration between multi-disciplinary teams.

  • COVID-secure design

    We began working with the Southern Region on the design and fit out of their six-storey hub HQ in January of 2020. When the pandemic hit, we refreshed our designs to be fully COVID-secure in order to facilitate a safe return to work for their employees whilst sticking to our original design principles and ensuring we built in the flexibility needed to adapt the layout if and when physical distancing relaxes.

  • Return to the office

    The new office is designed around two-metre social distancing, supported by a two-metre floor grid and directional flow cut into the carpet which can be changed post pandemic. All meeting rooms are completely open to eliminate enclosed spaces. All necessary doors are automated and we’ve incorporated anti-microbial materials, occupancy sensors, bespoke signage and many other design elements to ensure Network Rail’s staff can return to the office safely and feel confident in doing so. Our design team also provided a bespoke training video to help teach staff how to use their new workspace.
