Offices as we know it have evolved, now they are a far cry from the isolated desk spaces that turn work into the daily grind experienced by many. Innovative designs have transformed modern day offices into inspiring work spaces geared towards not just productivity but employee health and happiness. A well-constructed office has the power to enhance and elevate the lives of the employees that work there, and as demonstrated by Google and Pixar, its design can influence workers more than first thought.
As Quartermile confirms, working from a city centre location no longer means a weary commute that’s followed by a day of drudgery in a soulless, dark space. In fact, living and working at Quartermile might just be the kind of antidote to the ‘Monday blues’ that you have long been looking for.

Inside each office are features of the highest environmental and energy efficiency standards. The construction as a whole has achieved EPC ‘A’ rating, a standard that means a 33% reduction in energy consumption, and a BREEAM certification of ‘Very Good’ making it an attractive property investment with high sustainable value and efficiency.
During development only high efficiency services were used throughout the offices whilst the incorporation of high performance external glazing means commercial clients can enjoy all the advantages of a sustainable working environment. On a day-to-day basis the use of a Building Management System ensures heating and lighting are zoned and efficiently used. In addition to this, low energy LED lighting and water consumption reduction techniques are utilised to limit environmental impact further.
