Don’t miss an exclusive opportunity to take a look behind the scenes of the recently refurbished, super smart corporate headquarters of the British Film Institute (BFI), the home of film in the UK.
Located at Stephen Street, BFI worked closely with AWA and brand experts, RAW Brothers, in 2017, to transform their workplace, from dull and dreary to vibrant, agile and creative. Their mission? To utilise the space, maximise cognitive performance and productivity and cut costs.
They faced two main challenges: First, how to educate a large workforce with multiple teams (spanning education, programming and curation to IT, HR and legal) of the importance of cross-team collaboration. Second, BFI needed to prove they could generate income and support themselves, without additional funding.
Under AWA’s stewardship, a project team was utilized to maximise square footage without jeopardising performance or comfort, by housing the BFI team on three floors, instead of five – whilst implementing a series of agile working practices.
12 months’ later and BFI has raised the bar for contemporary city chic; transforming its HQ into one of the cities’ most exciting, innovative, contemporary, agile workplaces that perfectly champions and celebrates the vibrancy and the heritage of the BFI brand throughout.
