Henry Boot has recently completed the relocation of its head office to the Isaacs Building, part of the Heart Of The City development scheme in Sheffield city centre. The 12,800 sq ft space occupied over the top three floors aims to provide the team and partners with a more sustainable, flexible, and modern workspace. Henry Boot’s diversified network of teams and businesses will collaborate seamlessly while attracting new talent and retaining existing staff to achieve the company’s ambitious growth plans.
The new premises with a focus on employee well-being has facilities such as collaboration zones, breakfast bars, cycle storage, changing facilities, shower rooms, and complementary retail and leisure facilities in the city centre, to support the health and well-being of its people. The new office move supports Henry Boot’s ambition of being net zero carbon by 2030, where the company has already reduced its Scope 1 and 2 emissions by 12% and gas and electricity usage by 37% and 9% respectively since 2019. This relocation is set to reduce the carbon footprint by 79% compared to its former HQ at Banner Cross Hall.
According to CEO, Tim Roberts, “Our relocation epitomises this forward-thinking approach, marking a major investment in our people and reaffirming our commitment to minimising the environmental impact of our operations. We’re excited to have a new home that will help us work towards our goals to achieve net zero by 2030 and empower our people to be happier, healthier, and more successful in their work.”
The design of the building was by Incognito, who developed a detailed concept design brief for the office fit-out. Additionally, ADT Workplace completed the office fit-out and supported the design process with project tours.
This relocation serves as a major investment in the company’s growth, staff welfare, and commitment to sustainability. By moving into a sustainable and modern office, the company aims to collaborate effectively, retain and attract talent, and succeed in achieving its growth plans.
