How to create a winning workplace

Richard Baldwin, Head of Development for Derwent London, shares his thoughts on their approach to commercial development using five principles to create a winning workplace.

At our Leading Business by Design summit, Richard shared the key principles Derwent London have identified for developing commercial spaces.  These principles include using new techniques such as concrete core cooling to commissioning artists to create bespoke art to feature as part of the spaces.

The new White Collar Factory building in London’s Old Street was inspired by Design Council’s Active by Design programme to incorporate a running track on the roof, encouraging tenants to lead more active lives.

Watch the story of how Derwent London shape the environment for the communities that that live and work in their commercial spaces in London.
