Project Overview

Henry Boot aimed to change its workspace to support growth and reach net zero carbon by 2030. We worked closely with Henry Boot and Incognito, who created the initial brief and design. Our team supported the design with tours and workshops to ensure every detail was planned.

Design and Execution

Our role as the delivery partner involved transforming 12,800 sq. ft. across three floors of the Isaacs Building. Key features of the Henry Boot Sheffield office include:

Agile Workspaces:

Open-plan desks, agile tables, meeting rooms, quiet pods, and social areas cater to different working styles and tasks.

Architectural Staircase:

A striking oak laminate staircase improves connectivity and communication between floors. It adds a central feature to the office.

High-Quality Finishes:

The office boasts stunning lighting, herringbone flooring, bespoke joinery, and luxury furniture. A bold yet classic colour palette of black, greys, blues, and purples creates an inspiring environment.

Sustainable Practices

Sustainability was key to this project. The office is expected to reduce carbon emissions by 79% compared to the former head office. We used environmentally friendly and recyclable materials wherever possible.

Intelligent LED lighting and natural light from floor-to-ceiling windows enhance energy efficiency. The design and construction aimed to minimise waste and reduce embodied carbon.
