METRO Be1 - workplace of the future
METRO's employees will soon be afforded a spatial experience the company's repositioning spatially at the revamped company headquarters. The new headquarters at the METRO Campus in Düsseldorf go by the name of Be1. This stands for one company, one organisation and one team under one roof.
Modern, innovative and open: the new METRO will espouse these values in its day-to-day activities too. Bridge 1, which is being converted into an open-plan office, will offer the employees the ideal conditions for greater transparency, more flexibility and better communication.
The building's new infrastructure promotes creativity and commitment, as well as networking among the employees. The new, open work environment strengthens teamwork, while also providing plenty of rooms and quiet spots for focused individual work or think tanks.
METRO PROPERTIES is responsible for the overall coordination, planning and implementation and the renowned architectural firm HPP serves as the general contractor on the project.
Bridge 1, which is being converted into an open-plan office, will offer the METRO employees the ideal conditions for greater transparency, more flexibility, better communication and a new level of comfort. We are delighted to be assisting METRO PROPERTIES with this project as the general contractor and to be giving METRO's cultural change a space.
Focus on sustainability
Sustainability has played an important role in the planning of Be1. The materials used had to meet the BSCI standard (Business Social Compliance Initiative). This seal of approval proves that an ethical supply chain has been adhered to. Aspects such as employee rights and environmental protection are focal points.
Of course, METRO, as one of the first BSCI members, has put emphasis on said standards: in the new headquarters, for example, the walls of moss or the wood for the benches come from a controlled value chain.
