Grade A offices are being constructed all over the UK and, with the wellbeing benefits that come with a Grade A office, it is no wonder that this is the case. Employee wellbeing is a hot topic across industries and something we are incredibly invested in with our own workforce, so it is great to be able to be a part of a project which helps to improve the wellbeing of the staff within a workplace.
A Grade A /Class A office used to be constructed to suit the needs of banks and other financial facilities and could usually be found near the City of London or the West End. Now they are becoming much more common and sought after with Grade A offices being built in most major cities. They are the pinnacle of the quality that can be achieved. Competitively sought after, these properties are either newly constructed buildings or buildings which have undergone a total redevelopment. These office spaces are fitted with the top-of-the-line fixtures, amenities and HVAC proving them to be popular amongst high-profile, white-collar companies.
Grade A offices can be found in high-rise buildings meaning higher ceilings which allow natural light to flood in rather than being artificially lit. These offices are aesthetically pleasing and usually have a large central lobby. Savills state that many Grade A offices offer a “village concept” with coffee shops, cycle racks, showers and changing facilities.
Grade A offices are designed and built to be a light and spacious work place. According to Forbes, having access to natural light and collaborative work spaces means employee satisfaction and productivity will increase. By opening up the workspace both physically and with natural light, people feel that they are more free to move around rather than being tied to their desk. This leads to more opportunities for creative collaboration – something that we think is brilliant!
