Innovative working and office accommodation, which is also connected to outside facilities that make time spent there more enjoyable, and new parking spaces have been developed for the complete campus site on floor space measuring approx. 8,000 square metres within about twelve months. The room structures required for the open space concept have been introduced as highly flexible and particularly energy-efficient solutions too so that the employees have greater opportunities to share ideas.
A consultancy firm, which specialises in designing new working environments, determined the needs of employees during extensive workshops that were held earlier.
“We used them to identify working and communications procedures for specific departments so that we could bear them in mind as far as possible when designing the workplaces. It’s very important for us to know that our employees feel at ease when they’re working,” said Egbert Bernsmeister, a Rhenus Board Member.
The new buildings have been constructed to create modern and flexible working facilities, enable the company to terminate the lease on rented property as well as provide for the long-term growth of the logistics specialist. As many as 500 employees can now work in the buildings. Some people already moved into the first offices in November 2018.
