Prioritising Environmental, Social and Governance changes will be even more prevalent as we head towards the remainder of 2022 into 2023

Employees expectations have shifted and grown since the Pandemic. There is an enhanced appreciation of the connection between employee wellbeing and productivity as well as focusing on Environmental and Governance compliance. Employee health and wellbeing benefits, they offer regular remote-working options and building design offering home-from-home benefits to attract experienced talent, remains of upmost importance to potential new tenants looking for new office space.

Lantern is a brand-new building leading the way in efficiency. Modern buildings offer sustainable solutions that maximise energy efficiency and reduce energy consumption. Workplace charging has become common place and essential to significantly reduce carbon footprint from employees and customer travel. Emissions from employee commutes add up quickly. Encouraging employees to transition to EVs can make a serious impact when it comes to reducing emissions.

It goes far deeper than EV charging; designed with the tenant at its heart the design ethos at Lantern has been created around the philosophy of ‘Bright Thinking’: putting employee happiness and productivity at the forefront by flooding the floor plates with natural light! This results in happier workers, less absenteeism, reduced stress and fewer illnesses.

From an energy efficient VRF air conditioning system (BREEAM Very Good /EPC A) to EV car charging controlled by an app for tenant ease, ventilated lockers and intelligent design of the floor plates allowing for an abundance of windows allowing natural light to flood in; vital to the success of any new commercial office space.

Potential tenants will continue to want to leverage the ESG provision, aligning it with their own ESG company goals providing additional value add.
