We are delighted to have been selected to complete the office fit-out for Henry Boot in Sheffield, a 12,800 sq.ft space located across the top three floors of the recently refurbished Isaacs Building. Set for completion later this year, the new workplace will provide Henry Boot’s team, clients, and partners with a contemporary, sustainable and flexible headquarters in Sheffield’s ‘Heart of the City’ development.
As part of the process, we have worked in close collaboration with Henry Boot and Incognito – who developed the brief and detailed concept design – to support the design process with project tours and additional design workshops to inform the fit-out, which will be delivered over the coming months.
Commenting on the move, Tim Roberts, Chief Executive Officer at Henry Boot, said: “After 90 years at Banner Cross Hall, this move is a significant one and we consider it to be of incredible importance for our new head office in Sheffield to feel like a fresh and ambitious step forward, providing us with a new environment that encourages greater collaboration and cohesiveness across Henry Boot’s diverse network of teams. We are confident that with the creative design work by Incognito and diligent fit-out by ADT Workplace, the Isaacs Building will prove to be the ideal headquarters fit for the long-term future of Henry Boot.”
The aim of the new HQ at the Isaacs Building is to support the ambitious growth plans of the business in a new environment and to support its 2030 net zero carbon commitments. The seven-storey Isaacs Building has been developed with sustainability at its core achieving a BREEAM ‘Very Good’ rating. To further enhance the building’s energy efficiency, it has been connected to Sheffield’s District Energy Network, providing low-cost, sustainable energy.
George Tilbury, commercial manager at ADT Workspace commented: “We are delighted to be working with Henry Boot on the creation of the organisation’s new headquarters. Working collaboratively with the business and Incognito has provided us with real insight into Henry Boot’s wants and needs, and business processes, which has enabled us to develop a bespoke workplace. This isn’t simply a change in office location to a fantastic redevelopment in the heart of Sheffield, this is an evolution of the way in which the Henry Boot team works, collaborates, and develops as a team, and we’re really excited to deliver a high quality scheme that will provide tangible benefits for years to come.”
