Capita Symonds completes Network Rail office refurbishment

Refurbishment at Network Rail’s London office space, located in Waterloo, has been completed.

Given the name ‘Refresh Waterloo,’ the project has been carried out by Capita Symonds’ Strategic Property and Workplace Projects team.

The project saw the creation of new areas to allow staff members to collaborate, as well as areas solely dedicated for hosting meetings. Over 800 workstations – used by in excess of 900 Network Rail staff members – were also replaced and renewed as part of the project.

‘Refresh Waterloo’ is the first of a number of projects set to take place during a five-year programme expected to cover a number of Network Rail’s 150 UK offices.

Route director for Network Rail, Dave Ward, commented on the project.

He said: “As you will be aware the standard of space at Waterloo had become tired and no longer reflected Network Rails high standards and forward thinking.

“We believe that our office accommodation is a valuable tool to help our people deliver their best work and I am delighted that the Waterloo building now reflects the organisational DNA providing us with the very best of facilities.”
