Despite adopting a hybrid working model, CBRE are still achieving 70% occupancy levels in Henrietta House: proof that if you design a people-centred building, people will want to use it. A client lounge on the first floor even provides dedicated co-working space for visiting clients looking to make CBRE’s office their own.
