Deloitte will be moving its Prague headquarters to the new office in the Churchill Project. Penta has been developing the project since November 2017 in the area between the Prague Main Train Station and the University of Economics. Deloitte is planning to occupy more than 12,000 m2 in Building I, ie more than 80% of the total leasable area of the building.
“Deloitte is developing and changing in a fairly dynamic way. Its significant growth must be inevitably supported by state-of-the-art and technologically advanced facilities,” says Diana Rádl Rogerová, Managing Partner for Deloitte Czech Republic. “We are planning to move in the first half of 2019.”
The offices will be equipped with modern eco-friendly technology, including an intelligent air distribution system. Rain water will be used for plant watering and flushing toilets. This is one of the reasons why the building was awarded the LEED Gold certification.
“In projecting new offices, we have referred to a survey conducted among our employees as well as experience from our foreign colleagues. The new office concept accentuates collaboration, creativity and flexibility. We also put greater emphasis on employees’ well-being; for example, we will have our own gym or a roof terrace overlooking Prague Castle. Both our employees and clients have definitely something to look forward to,” says Jan Stehlík, COO at Deloitte Czech Republic.
Deloitte’s employees will also have an opportunity to use 60 bike stands in the new office since the Churchill area is accessible by a bikeway from other parts of Prague. Moreover there will be a co-working zone of Deloitte Next which will provide facilities for clients to test their ideas and new solutions in practice as part of multiple-day intensive workshops.
The administrative part (Buildings I and II) and a new apartment house are the last stages of the Churchill project, following the previous construction of five residential buildings. The project also involves building an underpass to connect the Prague Main Train Station, Winston Churchill Square and the University of Economics, making the C metro station accessible directly from Žižkov and Vinohrady.
