A Look Inside McAfee’s New Slough Office
McAfee, a global computer security software company that secures your devices against viruses, malware, and other threats, recently moved into a new office in Slough, England, designed by workplace design firm Area.
“When global security software company McAfee were relocating to a new address in Slough, Area were instructed to design and build a new agile workplace for them. Having worked with McAfee on three projects previously, Area worked with acquiring agent, Cushman Wakefeld, and McAfee’s in-house project manager to develop a modern workplace design which embraces a change in working culture and oﬀers a ﬂexible and central hub for their employees to work within. Initially, due diligence of two buildings was carried out before a series of workshops took place with the local stakeholders to refne the brief. This was developed in detail to the fnal solution, culminating in a design presentation to McAfee’s project team. Situated across two ﬂoors, a central staircase has been installed to enhance connectivity between teams. The 6th ﬂoor is the main entrance to the McAfee brand, housing a meeting room suite and a generous breakout area adjacent to the terrace. Embracing agility within the main working area on the 7th ﬂoor, the open-plan environment provides 11 individual ofces, a boardroom, pockets of breakout space, as well as a central transient hub for the sales team,” says Area
