So, if you’re currently searching for an office to lease in Stratford, or just curious about the latest building to grace Stratford’s skyline – let us tell you a little more about the Turing Building. 

 

It’s a workplace for the future

Inspired by a man who was firmly ahead of his time, the Turing Building is a workplace of and for the future. It will have a backbone of technology which gives users (and companies) access to heaps of data about how the building is used and how people work. It’ll be connected with high-speed internet throughout, and a dedicated app – but that’s not the main reason we call it a futuristic workplace. 

The Turing Building is designed to be human-centric. It wants people not just to work well, but be well by working there. It will do this by facilitating collaboration, by bringing people together, making life convenient, flooding spaces with fresh air, natural light, and an assortment of branch out spaces and lust-worthy common areas. 

It won’t just be built for business, it’ll also be built for people – a high priority for anyone looking for an office to lease, Stratford. 

 

It’s already award-winning

So, it’s not open yet. But it’s already got an impressive resume of certifications. 

From a wellbeing perspective, it’s BREEAM Outstanding (the highest awarded certification), Well Gold and it’s targeting Wirescore Platinum from a connectivity and tech standpoint. 

But this should be of no surprise, given its older siblings like 2 Redman Place and 1 Westfield Avenue racked up similar certifications as workplaces that support employee wellbeing and sustainability.

 

It’s easy to get to 

You may already know that Stratford is well-connected to the rest of London, and for those living and working in the area there are a variety of ways to get around.

Travelling to the Turing Building couldn’t be easier. With 170 bike racks and 45 folding bicycle spaces, and a range of connecting routes, cycling is just one option.

Situated just minutes from Liverpool Street and St Pancras International stations; connected by multiple bus lines; and easily accessible by tube, there’s a variety of ways to get to the Turing Building from around London.

 

It’s green

Not only do our buildings look after people, they also look after the planet. And that’s built into Lendlease’s wider Net Zero targets.

The Turing Building saw a 48% embodied carbon reduction in construction; will operate with a 57% reduction in water demand; and will have EPC A Energy Ratings and 90m2 of solar panels to contribute to a 30% reduction in embodied carbon. 

We like to think of it as a building with an environmental conscience. 

 

It’s conveniently connected

Convenience is key to the modern-day worker, especially now that we’ve all got used to working from our own homes. 

Whilst Stratford is arguably one of the best-connected districts in London (thanks to major investment in local infrastructure), the Turing Building itself has convenience built in. 

No need to wander through Westfield of a lunchtime seeking something delicious – around IQL we already have exceptional restaurants, bars, lunch spots and green spaces, and the Turing Building will add to that with retail units on the ground level and a coffee kiosk and café within the active lobby. 

You’ll even be able to order coffee, book a meeting room or find a fabulous lunch offer - all from your phone, through the [email protected] app. Connected and convenient.

 

It’s, quite frankly, really cool

We’ve covered quite a lot of the building’s features, but let’s get down to the nitty gritty – the sexy stuff that will bring joy and happiness on a daily basis. The building itself will be home to: 

- Two boutique cinema spaces
- An active lobby where people are encouraged to come together 
- Its own café
- Event space
- A roof terrace on the 19th floor
- Floor to ceiling windows
- Incredible views over Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and Stratford

It’s also surrounded by world-class sporting facilities, as a legacy of the Olympic Games, and exceptional social spots, like D&D London’s new Haugen bar and restaurant. 

We don’t need to sell Stratford as a neighbourhood to work or live in – it does that itself (and it was identified as one of the healthiest workplaces in London by the Centric Lab this year). Find out more about the upcoming Turing building and other workspaces at IQL.
