Workplace design and build specialist, Peldon Rose, is investing in an in-house strategy team to provide clients with bespoke, evidence-based consultancy, to help them derive value from their real estate decisions.
The Workplace Strategy team will work closely with business leaders to gain a thorough understanding of business objectives, current performance, and business aspirations to develop bespoke evidence-based design and occupational strategies.
This includes a comprehensive analysis of their current working conditions – from physical elements such as size, location and facilities within the workplace, right through to behavioural factors including use of space, employee needs and business culture, to assess workspace performance and effectiveness.
Leeson Medhurst, Head of the new Workplace Strategy team at Peldon Rose, said: “I will be leading this team through an ever changing workspace landscape, the past 12-months has turbo-charged the workplace conversation and we have seen the development in attitudes from ‘the office is dead’ at the beginning of the pandemic, to the realisation that the key to maintaining and fostering business culture and employee wellbeing is through a shared space.
“As an industry we must not kid ourselves that clients must have an office. Attitudes have changed, brought on by the effects of Covid-19. The role of my team is to demonstrate why our clients should want an office, and by doing so enables them to do things better.”
The new in-house workplace consultancy team will work with the rest of the Peldon Rose design and build teams, strengthening its end-to-end offering.
Jitesh Patel, CEO at Peldon Rose commented: “Difficult market conditions across the board mean that real-estate will have to deliver more than ever for businesses. We’ve seen the pandemic accelerate existing trends within workspaces – technology and a focus on agile working means our offices will increasingly become a space for collaboration, development and socialising.
“Our investment in our workplace strategy team puts us in an ideal position to give clients the consultancy they need throughout the design and build process, ensuring they get a real return on investment from the workspace.”
