Cover Story One Dorset Street: Fit For Business

An exceptional working environment is much more than an office, it will provide everything that an employee needs to do his or her job from every perspective. That means a stylish interior design that is welcoming to visitors as well as conducive to the productivity and creativity of the employees based there. It means great connectivity from a tech perspective, as well as physically with ease of access to outdoor space and local amenities.

One Dorset Street, the latest development by RO Real Estate, provides all of this and more. One Dorset Street is the first building in Hampshire to achieve Fitwel certification, the world’s leading system for designing and operating buildings that actively improve occupant health.

One Dorset Street has been developed and designed with its users at its heart, making healthy choices easy and convenient throughout the normal working day. Nick Moore, Head of Investment at RO Real Estate says:

“We are immensely proud to be creating spaces for modern occupiers and believe One Dorset Street, is an exceptional working environment encapsulating some fantastic features which demonstrate our commitment to wellbeing and collaborative agile working.”

Existing occupiers, Santander say:

“This is a great working environment, we will definitely be using the pods for meetings and the staff are really enjoying the new coffee machine!”

Feel Better, Work Better

With a total floor area of 24,564 ft² (2,282 m²), this prominent office is located in Southampton’s main central business district and has been fully refurbished to exacting standards to meet the requirements of the modern office occupier.

Ideally positioned within walking distance of many amenities including local parks and gyms, One Dorset Street is the first Fitwel- certified project in Hampshire and the South Coast.

Employee wellness is an increasingly high priority for all modern businesses and this certification not only puts employees’ health and wellbeing at the heart of the working environment, but also provides tenants with formal recognition of these benefits.

Georgia Elliott Smith, Director and Head of Wellbeing at 360 Workplace, who supported RO Real Estate to achieve Fitwel certification, explains more about the benefit of the accreditation:

“Fitwel certification demonstrates a real commitment to occupant health and wellbeing throughout the life of the building. RO Real Estate are the first developer in Europe to achieve Fitwel certification for multi-tenant buildings and they continue to show their dedication to tenant wellbeing at One Dorset Street.

This new approach to designing and operating offices encourages users to live their best life by making healthy choices easy, for example with exemplary cycling, break-out and concierge facilities.”
