BDO are moving into Thames Tower

Office Principles are pleased to announce our latest landmark project in Reading.  BDO are looking to relocate their office to Thames Tower, and have partnered with Office Principles to fit-out the 12th floor.


Thames Tower is a brand-new building in the centre of Reading.  Known as The Vertical Village, this building has been designed to accommodate a community of like-minded businesses who will be able to naturally interact with one another, in space that meets their individual commercial needs, while providing a stimulating and enjoyable place to work.


BDO have taken 14,040 square foot on the 12th floor of this stunning new building in Reading, where we have designed a state-of-the-art new office space for them.


BDO is an accountancy and business advisory firm.  They have a global network who operate from 154 countries and 1400 offices worldwide.


Office Principles were hired as workplace consultants to investigate and create a new agile way of working. BDO were looking for several benefits including improved space utilisation, and the opportunity to engage with great talent.  The outcome of our workplace consultancy studies has enabled BDO to reduce their square footage by 2,824 square foot, and has meant that BDO can fit onto a single floor plate.  As well as saving on property costs, this will greatly enhance collaboration and productivity amongst staff.


We assisted BDO by helping them to analyse five buildings throughout Reading before they finally chose Thames Tower.  This really helped to take the guess work out of choosing the right space.


Our team of engineers and designers created an egalitarian new workspace design that maximises the 360 degree views and the 4-meter high ceiling with exposed services, and makes use of every square foot available.  Key feature workspaces within the design include a silent library for quiet work, acoustic pods for quick individual phone calls, a premium client meeting suite, a generous café, and a work zone with a philosophy of ‘everyone owns everywhere’.


Stay in touch for more information as we are due to unveil our finished creation in October.
