A Look Inside Tabcorp’s New London Office
Tabcorp, an Australian entertainment company recently merged with News Corp to set up a joint adventure in the online entertainment market and hired workplace design firm Area, to design their new offices in London, England.
“Selecting a 7,000 sq ft space next door to News Corp’s office within The Shard, Tabcorp’s new workspace needed to accommodate their existing 30-people workforce, whilst also allowing for future expansion. The key requirements were to create a workplace that attracts and retains talented staff, encourages collaboration across teams, and provides flexible working options. With no requirement for client-facing facilities, Tabcorp’s new workspace has been exclusively designed for their staff. Upon entering the space, employees are welcomed into a central collaboration area and tea point. This has been designed to encourage and aid communication and provides a number of working opportunities. Additionally, all fixed desks have been located along the window perimeter to ensure every employee has a great view of the City of London. This project is an example of efficiently utilising the available space. The floorplate space planning is designed to maximise flexibility using moveable walls, screens and a flexible furniture solution. All have been installed to ensure the space can be used for informal catch-ups, town hall meetings, as well as eating and entertainment space,” says Area
