Awfis, India’s largest integrated workspace solutions provider, has partnered with CBRE South Asia Pvt. Ltd, India’s leading real estate consulting firm, and WayCool foods, India’s largest and fastest growing agri-commerce enterprise. In the first phase of this partnership, Awfis has leased 64,000 square feet to WayCool across Chennai and Bengaluru.
Awfis will bring its expertise of catering to highly specialised and customised requirements of companies and make pioneering design innovations for WayCool’s new offices in Bangalore & Chennai. Some of these extraordinary provisions include hi-tech Robotics, Mechanical, IoT and Electrical Labs, a premium hypermarket setup for its range of products, a discussion lounge with showcase pantry, a state-of-the-art experience centre with high-end retail display, a studio space and a dedicated sprawling setup for town halls, employee recreation and collaboration which includes a library and a display wall for employee artwork.
The design and aesthetics of these offices is a proof to the growing focus of new-age companies towards creating multi-dimensional, interactive, and rewarding office spaces for employees returning back to physical workplaces after a prolonged period of working from home. Offices like this promise to ignite the creativity and enhance the motivation levels of employees, making the transition back to offices a fulfilling experience.
In line with the post-pandemic reality and changing business needs, CBRE & Awfis are working closely on multiple opportunities across India. Awfis currently has the largest network of flexible workspaces with 95 coworking centres and 55,000 seats spread across 13 cities and is soon heading towards the 100 centres milestone before the end of 2021. CBRE, one of the leading IPCs in India, is collaborating with several top occupiers to provide evolved workspace solutions in the new normal.
