Reckitt, a world leader in hygiene, health and nutrition brands, appointed Tétris to design the refurbishment of their UK head office in Slough.
The scope consisted of the main office building set over four floors with a central atrium, which later expanded to include the design of an outdoor meeting facility and refurbishment of their multi-storey car park.
We led the team of MEP, catering, acoustician, structural engineers, IT /AV, WELL and branding consultants to create a space that captures Reckitt’s purpose, creating a dynamic wellness-orientated environment for their employees.
We reimagined the atrium as the heart of the building with a new coffee bar, tiered seating, and suspended lighting scheme, turning it into a popular social and collaboration hub. The ground floor also provides a gym, wellness suite, restaurant and meeting rooms. Divided into neighbourhoods, the office floors provide electric height-adjustable desks and collaboration spaces.
Outside, we created five garden meeting pods with interlinking decking paths, retained mature trees, and pergolas for shade. We redesigned the multi-storey car park with metal cladding, perforated to create woodland imagery.
The project is on target for WELL Platinum certification. As Employer’s Agent we participated in the tender process for the general contractor and carried out the role of Design and Quality Guardians to post-completion.
