Area is now on site to deliver the 14,000 sq ft Bracknell workplace for IT and security operations provider Ivanti. The development of their Bracknell office is the second in a series of national workplaces being created for Ivanti, which was formed following the merger of LANDESK, HEAT Software, Wavelink, App Sense and Shavlik in January 2017.
Working with project manager Francis Hunter, Area are tasked with delivering the Cat B refurbishment of 3 Arlington Square, which is the location of LANDESK’s former offices. Having completed the original project of LANDESK’s earlier workplace project, Area have used their existing knowledge of the building, as well as working closely with Ivanti’s project team to create a modern and fresh-looking workplace design.
Ivanti’s new workplace has been designed to inspire, connect and increase the productivity and happiness of its staff. All staff will be located on one floor plate to provide a connected, visible and collaborative workspace, and key features will include a range of flexible meeting spaces, a central tea point, and breakout hub. Wanting to offer an innovative client experience for visitors, the front-of-house space will feature an experience centre, as well as modern and relaxed demonstration areas for customers to test Ivanti’s latest products.
Spencer Meredith, project director for Area, comments: “We are delighted to be working with Ivanti to deliver their workplace project in Bracknell. Their future workspace will play an instrumental role in bringing together the individual businesses that have come together to form Ivanti. Therefore, the design concept has taken this into consideration, ensuring it’s the right solution to enhance their culture, whilst also creating the right working platforms for staff to feel productive, supported and most importantly, happy.”
The project is no site now and is expected to complete in December 2017
