Mortgage Advice Bureau has announced that it has appointed Office Principles to carry out a major redesign and refurbishment project at its Derby headquarters.

The mortgage intermediary brand has appointed the interior design consultancy to transform more than 13,000 sq ft of space at the three storey Capital House, in Pride Place, on Pride Park.

The project will see the complete strip out of the existing building back to shell, paving the way for a new collaborative working environment that will cater for hybrid working and deliver a range of work settings for up to 300 employees.

Office Principles will create a series of open plan workplace ‘neighbourhoods’, complemented by new meeting rooms, breakout spaces and a large ground floor space for socialising and gatherings.

The aim will be to provide bespoke working environments, offering staff flexibility in how they work.

The space will also promote employee wellbeing through an extensive use of planting, as well as a dedicated area for prayer, nursing parents or meditation.

Gary Tailby, joint managing director of Office Principles North, said: “Many businesses are facing the challenge of delivering workplaces that are capable of retaining and attracting staff post-Covid.

“MAB recognises that its people want to work in a modern office environment that offers a greater choice in how and where they work and socialise, and provides a more attractive alternative to working from home.

“We’re proud to be delivering a headquarters building that makes the very best use of available space and allows people to maximise their day.”

Claire Smith, people and culture director at MAB, said: “Diversity, equality and inclusion remain a significant focus for MAB, and have been fully incorporated within our state-of-the-art office refurbishment.

“We understand that all our employees have different needs in terms of their wellbeing and how they work, which is why the new office includes a variety of spaces such as focus areas, pods, and a dedicated wellness room.

“We’re delighted with the design that Office Principles North has created to completely transform and optimise the space, and we look forward to seeing our colleagues thrive, connect and collaborate in their new office.”
