Our expertise in office towers and headquarters design is driven by our in-house research, which includes: design management, sustainability design and computation design. We aim to provide integrated design solutions that strategically, culturally and aesthetically fit our office towers into their urban contexts. Design management helps us to strategically understand our client, their brand and the organisation. We design places that facilitate workplace innovation and a culture of collaboration. Integrating the “brand” into physical surroundings to broaden a more meaningful experience for the users, be it the client, employees or customer. Sustainable design helps in achieving the challenging targets set by building regulations, planning requirements, BREEAM and LEED. We support and promote sustainable design innovation recognizing the inter-dependence of the architectural and engineering design components of our projects. Our interdisciplinary collaboration with architectural and industry specialists is important in developing sustainable design concepts within our projects to fit our clients’ goals. Computational design helps us strategically test our ideas from two dimensions into three-dimensional modelling of our buildings. This is an integral part of our design process in innovating, testing and prototyping. Benefits of BIM (Building Information Modelling) include consistency across drawings and schedules, accurate 3D visualisation  and the ability of our designers and experts to work collaboratively in a 3D database.
