Haleon | Bankside, London - Rethink Brand

  • Managed Office
  • 31,578 sq ft
  • 5 years
  • Bankside, London

The Instant Group successfully delivers BREEAM Excellent certified Managed Office across 5 floors in 2 phases for Haleon, creating a modern, functional, and aesthetically pleasing work environment tailored to their employees' needs.

In response to a demerger, Haleon sought a new workspace in Central London. Haleon needed a client-facing workspace that would boost productivity and facilitate colleague collaboration. Challenges included connecting the workforce for physical meetings, insufficient touchdown space, and the necessity for new brand identity. 

Challenges
  • Post-Demerger Transition: Integrating Haleon's new identity and culture post-demerger with GSK while ensuring smooth operations and minimal disruption.
  • Sustainability Implementation: Ensuring sustainability principles were integrated into every aspect of the project, from material sourcing to construction, and post-occupancy operations.
  • Meeting New Brand & Workplace Guidelines: Understanding and meeting the specific requirements and expectations of Haleon regarding workspace design, functionality, and branding.
  • Regulatory Compliance: Adhering to regulatory requirements, building codes, and environmental standards while implementing sustainable practices and innovative design solutions.
  • Insufficient Collaboration Space: Haleon needed a central London office to boost productivity and facilitate colleague collaboration.
Outcomes
  • Successful Office Transformation: The project successfully transformed office spaces across 5 floors in 2 phases, into modern, functional, and aesthetically pleasing work environments tailored to Haleon's needs.
  • Alignment with Sustainability Goals: The workspace achieved BREEAM Excellent certification, reduced carbon footprint, promoted sustainable practices, and won awards for sustainability initiatives, contributing to Haleon's net zero goals and environmental stewardship. In addition, 50% of the furniture is recyclable and cork flooring was installed which is 100% recyclable. The re-use of lighting also won two awards, as part of the Build Back Better Scheme, which contributed to a Craft College in East London.
  • Enhanced Workspace Standards: The project set new global workplace standards for Haleon, emphasising inclusivity, diversity, equity, wellbeing, and accessibility, fostering a positive work environment and employee satisfaction.
  • Timely Completion and Client Satisfaction: Despite challenges, the project was completed within specified timelines and budget constraints, exceeding client expectations and receiving overwhelmingly positive feedback.
  • Increased occupancy: Sensory technology has been installed throughout Triptych which uses ultrared scanners to count people in the room, allowing Haleon to monitor occupancy without infringing on employee’s privacy and autonomy. Through this technology, they have an average utilisation of 80%.
  • Best-in-class employee experience: The final workspace integrates cutting-edge technology and amenities for a seamless employee experience. Features include a micro-farm, living wall, Haleon shop featuring all their latest products, sensory and wellness rooms, iPad controlled coffee machine, honesty café, self-service micro market, moveable screens for collaboration, digital lockers, and ambient lighting.

"We are immensely proud of our collaboration with Haleon on the Triptych office build. Achieving BREEAM Excellent accreditation is a testament to our shared commitment to sustainability and underscores the transformative power of purpose-driven design.”

Sam Pickering, Executive Director, Sustainability of The Instant Group
