Health & Wellbeing

The experience of working at Kirkstall Forge is like no other. As well as being located in a stunning valley surrounded by nature, the health and wellbeing of all employees is of paramount importance. So much so, that Number One has already won Property Week’s national Property Wellbeing Award 2018.

The award sought an exemplar building, project or initiative that has raised the bar in terms of the wellbeing of its occupiers, as well as demonstrating ground-breaking sustainability credentials. Health and wellbeing have been considered throughout the design. The double height reception maximises the natural light, specular views of the river frontage and surrounding protected woodland. The stairwells are flooded with daylight and internal landscaping throughout. The dedicated estates management team ‘Kirkstall Forge Life’ provide weekly yoga classes, running clubs and cycling hire, employees are able to take full advantage of the best-in-class shower facilities and cycle spa.  Occupants note the sense of calm and serenity through reduced columns on floorplates, allowing more natural light to stream into the floorplate and expansive views.  And our occupiers are seeing the financial benefits of relocating here too, with Zenith’s staff turnover rate reduced by 35% since they moved into Number One.

A site-wide travel plan has been developed, providing a strategy for facilitating trips to and around Kirkstall Forge by sustainable travel modes.
