Colleagues At Our Westminster Bridge Road Office

Our new head office at Westminster Bridge Road in Southwark has now reopened after an extensive renovation and modernisation project.

Published: 20/04/2022

Peabody Chair, Lord Kerslake joined colleagues from both Peabody and Catalyst’s Equality, Diversity & Inclusion networks to open the building, and welcome colleagues to the new space.

After joining together with Catalyst, our new organisation has around 4,000 colleagues, with 14 larger hubs across London and the home counties.

The refurbishment follows the closure of our Walworth Road and Tower Bridge offices to consolidate our central London workspaces and become more efficient. Our newly renovated office is an open, modern workplace designed to provide collaboration spaces with a mixture of touchdown spaces, pods, meeting rooms and laptop stations, providing flexible, collaborative and easily accessible workspace. It will set the blueprint for our wider offices to create collaborative and sustainable workplaces across the group.

We want to improve our buildings and our open spaces to be more sustainable and also support people to make greener choices. As part of this project, we installed solar panels on the roof which generate around 12,000 KWh of electricity and save 6,250 kg of CO2 a year. This is the equivalent of travelling 23,400 miles in a car.

We’re also committed to buying products, materials and services that do not have a negative impact on the environment. All the suppliers involved in the office refurbishment project are based in the UK, and we used sustainable materials which can be easily recycled.

Peabody Chief Executive Ian McDermott said: “We see the reopening of Westminster Bridge Road as a real opportunity to embed hybrid working for the long-term and to properly understand what is best for our teams and for our customers. We are pleased that our new offices will be highly sustainable, helping us move closer to our target to become more resource efficient, minimising our impact on the environment.

“Our new office will empower our colleagues to not be defined by where they work but by their roles and where they can work to best meet the needs of our customers. We hope our colleagues are excited to come back to work collaboratively in a hybrid space designed to be re-energising and encouraging colleagues to reconnect in person.”
