Opening at 110 Queen St

Natural and agile: new office is deloitteful

Deloitte Farish OwenDeloitte UK chairman Nick Owen joined Glasgow office senior partner Douglas Farish to launch the firm’s new office at 110 Queen Street and this is no ordinary workplace.

Staff areas are “biophilic“, which apparently means they “bring nature into man-made places”. This is said to have a range of proven benefits, including helping office workers to be more productive.

The furniture layout follows Herman Miller’s “Living Office” concept, which aims to support work and interaction, while the office design seeks “to encourage agile and new ways of working”, allowing staff more flexibility with their work setting and the way they go about their daily professional lives.

These are not the sort descriptions you would expect in a property agent’s brief, but they seem to have impressed the firm’s top brass.

Mr Farish said the new accommodation “captures the positive impact Deloitte has on our clients, the places in which we do business and the talent we hire”.
