Re-defining the standard of Cat A offices

We worked with Legal & General Investment Management to provide a Cat A fit out at Lotus Park, along with engaging meeting spaces and coworking areas in the shared areas. This project redefines the quality a landlord can provide.

Lotus Park, Staines

47,000 sq ft

Serviced offices

Lotus Park is a hidden gem in central Staines-Upon-Thames. This Grade A office park is in a leafy, sought-after setting, right on the River Thames. Over 47,000 sq ft of commercial space has been built across three office buildings, surrounded by communal gardens and outdoor landscaping. But with the increase in demand for flexible leases and plug-and-play workspaces, developer and landlord Legal & General felt it was time to make a change.

We completed a full CAT A refurbishment of 1 Lotus Park, which now provides 14,500 sq ft of office accommodation over two storeys. The bulk of our work in this building was on the ground floor where first impressions are struck. We remodelled the reception and fit out a plug-and-play office, known as Legal & General’s Capsule.

A stunning building entrance deserves a little extra attention. We made the most of a 8-metre high pitched roof to extend the arrival experience upwards. Our team designed and built a suspended ceiling with pendant lights hanging in the centre. This adds depth and layers to the overhead void, which is the perfect way to optimise a usually underutilised space.

Ready-to-go offices

The Capsule concept combines the benefits of a traditional lease and a serviced office to provide a flexible rental, negotiated directly with the landlord. The workspace itself is fully-furnished and ready for occupation. We designed and built a modern and neutral open plan environment with meeting rooms and a kitchenette. Flooring, fittings, furniture and wiring for data and power are all taken care of. On day one, the only thing for incoming tenants to do is switch on the coffee machine.

Legal & General has gone over and above its responsibility as a landlord to offer an entire workspace experience at Lotus Park. 3 Lotus Park is perfectly positioned to take full advantage of its riverside location with direct access to a garden that’s full of fun. We built new pathways, installed a petanque court and added a BBQ, patio furniture, branded deckchairs and a ping pong table. There’s even a flat, landscaped lawn for summertime yoga, picnics or BBQs.

If the gardens of 3 Lotus Park aren’t enough, we also stripped the entire building and installed all new flooring, suspended ceilings, wall coverings, glazing and services. We wrapped the existing reception desk with a stylish concrete-printed vinyl to give it a new lease of life, and added a coffee lounge and informal working area to the ground floor. The space is now perfectly prepared for a CAT B refurbishment.
