Allianz Insurance has unveiled a brand new hub for Engineering, Construction and Power (EC&P) at its head office in Guildford.
Ready for use when company-wide return to office for employees is allowed, the new hub features new virtual reality training equipment and collaboration spaces to encourage “innovation, networking and professional development”.
The build follows an announcement made by the group back in September 2020 that it would close its Liphook office and move EC&P roles to the Guildford head office.
The new hub has a specific EC&P ‘neighbourhood’ within the head office, collaboration and innovation spaces.
In addition, it also features ‘Drop in’ desks to create a flexible working environment and a “dedicated training” room for engineer surveyors.
Chris Little, director of engineering, construction and power, said: “It’s very exciting that the new EC&P hub in Guildford is now complete and having seen the work that’s been done, I am keen to get in and start utilising the area.
“We’re always looking at how we can improve our offering for partners, customers and employees and this move to Guildford should strengthen EC&P. The new hub will allow our already successful team to push on and move up to that next level.”
