Looking for a new permanent office location in London, BGL have secured the 6th floor at the hugely anticipated White Collar Factory.

This Derwent building, due to complete construction at the end of 2016 provides a Courtyard offering new public space and multiple cafes and restaurants on site, 3.5m floor to ceiling height, along with unbeatable views of London, a 150m rooftop running track, roof terrace, flexible workspace, concrete core cooling and 276 cycle spaces.
White Collar Factory will demonstrate exemplary sustainability credentials, minimising its impact on the environment during construction and operation and targeting an Excellent BREEAM rating. The building will also produce 25% less carbon over current building regulations.
The 6th floor will provide BGL Group with 14,284 sq ft of prime space. The JAC design and furniture aesthetic married with the industrial feel of the building looks set to be a stunning environment for the London BGL employees.
