Employee well-being has been a core element in the design and building of these spaces, finding action point within the WELL framework. The protocol requirements are extensive and include aspects related to both the configuration of the spaces and the services made available to employees. Particular care has been given to the technology to monitor air quality, temperature, humidity, drinking water and power supply in general, as well as providing suitable lighting for each work situation, sound absorption in open-plan areas and sound insulation in meeting rooms and enclosed spaces. All materials, colors and finishes have been studied to provide comfort and well-being, with a focus on environmental sustainability. Indoor plants combined with the view of the Indro Montanelli park offers psychological and physical benefits.
"The main function of the new offices will be to favor collaboration, the exchange of ideas between employees, as shown by the research of C&W XSF (Experience per Square Foot). This is why, in conceiving the new offices, we turned around 30% of their total area (520 square meters) into shared spaces. The energy produced by the interaction between individuals is visible and can be felt every day. This is the spirit, the soul of these spaces." Lamberto Agostini, Head of C&W PDS Italy.
The office spreads over one floor located in a neo classic building dating 1930 and called "Palazzo Montecatini". The building is right in Milan’s historic heart.
These new spaces, on the 5th floor, represent Cushman & Wakefield’s answer to the “offices of the future” theme.
