INSPIRATIONAL ENVIRONMENTS TO NURTURE CLEVER TECHNOLOGICAL MINDS
Forward-looking knowledge-based employees perform to a higher degree when provided with a working environment adapted to new working methods and a new structure to the working day. Take for example the inclusion of multi-rooms that have several functions and social zones catering for both formal and informal activities. These have proven extremely important for improvements to efficiency and job satisfaction for knowledge-based project organisations.
Kjeldsberg Eiendom is currently in the process of constructing inspirational commercial premises in the Sluppen district – the gateway to Trondheim’s knowledge-based cluster. Potential lessees are invited to take part in the design process, determining how their workspace will look in their own office buildings.
Several major technological firms have already decided to open offices in Sluppen, including Evry, GE Oil & Gas, Statkraft, Cameron and National Oilwell Varco. Siemens already has offices in the neighbouring area and the new buildings are a short cycle ride towards town from Sintef and the Norwegian University of Science and Technology at Gløshaugen.
In the space of a few years, Sluppen will become the most modern and forward-looking district of Trondheim. Sluppen is not only being developed for knowledge-based companies seeking contemporary premises and proximity to the Norwegian University of Science and Technology and Sintef, but is also designed for new inhabitants looking to move to a district with a highly developed infrastructure and a number of green parks.
