Lendlease’s flexible workplace, csuites, the first shared workspace to receive Healthier Workplaces certification

  • 26 Jul 2020

The certification recognises energy-efficient, resource-efficient and healthier interior spaces designed with the quality of indoor environment, and the health, comfort and wellbeing of occupants in mind. Evaluation criteria includes assessment of features that support the rising global demand for the adoption of green and healthy buildings and interior spaces. 

At the Asia Recruitment Awards 2020 last Friday, csuites also proved to be a winning pitch as Lendlease clinched the Silver award in the ‘Most Innovative and Sustainable Office Design’ category.

Organised by Human Resources Online, the award recognises sustainable and mindfully designed workspaces in Asia that play a substantial role in attracting talent. 

Luke Greenwood, Managing Director of csuites and Group Head of Corporate Real Estate, Lendlease, commented: “We are delighted and honoured to be recognised for placing occupant health, wellbeing and comfort at the centre of our flexible workplace solution designs. This award is timely, given that csuites is built to address the growing emphasis worldwide on employee health and wellbeing, a relevant factor as employers re-assess priorities post-pandemic.”

“csuites has been designed with the corporate tenant in mind. Research  has shown that typically 90% of today’s business operating costs are human resource-related. A strong employer proposition with an emphasis on employee health and wellbeing is crucial to talent retention, especially during these COVID-19 times,” he added.

csuites is designed with a people-first approach to address human health and wellness demands. The 72,000 square feet space is located across two floors of PLQ 3 and provides seamless access to a complete workplace ecosystem at PLQ. A key catalyst to Paya Lebar’s rejuvenation as a livable city precinct, PLQ provides a vibrant and well-connected network comprising 100,000 square feet of green public areas, convenient access to the MRT interchange, integration with the Park Connector Network and end-of-trip facilities that promote sustainable commuting alongside over 200 lifestyle offerings.

A next-generation solution for a new workforce 

Designed to support the needs of growing enterprises, csuites is purpose-built for corporates with larger teams, seeking a dynamic and collaborative environment that enhances well-being and productivity. By bringing together the privacy and security of traditional offices with the convenience and services of leading co-working environments, csuites seeks to meet growing demand for a more flexible and people-centric workspace. 
Flexibly smart csuites utilises in-built controls to sense space use and respond to space demand, with modular fit outs that allow spaces to be multi-functional, such as a pantry area that can also double up as a venue for a small townhall meeting. csuites’ occupants enjoy comprehensive amenities such as well-equipped pantries with dedicated fridges for each suite, first aid, nursing and multi-faith rooms, private phone booths, an in-house café, generous breakout areas and dedicated event spaces that are flexibly designed.

Daylighting & efficiencies An open office concept with minimal enclosed spaces, coupled with the absence of partitioning between workstations, allows csuites to maximise the flow of natural light into the space, thereby providing visual comfort to occupants and reducing energy costs. Scheduling the control of the air-conditioning units also contributes to the lowering of energy use.

Healthy, physically & mentally Beyond the physical aspects, csuites has also implemented a robust green education programme for its tenants. A green user guide, a green corner, as well as a comprehensive on-boarding programme for new members which includes arming them with basic ergonomics knowledge and sustainability guidelines, are in place. In addition, csuites also offers mental health management assistance with employee counselling programmes, and organises talks and workshops to support employee mental wellness.

csuites’ novel approach to design is distilled from Lendlease’s proven track record of creating hundreds of workplaces for leading corporations globally, and draws from Lendlease’s experience as a global developer, owner and operator of office spaces around the world. 

Lendlease itself has moved its Asia headquarters to csuites in 2019. The spaces at csuites have been custom-designed to give organisations the freedom to retain their brand identity and promote their own culture within their workspace. The other organisations located in csuites are from a diverse range of industries including technology, life sciences and fashion.
