share on


Arcadis Hong Kong has embraced sustainability and wellbeing with its move to a new inspirational office space in Two Harbour Square, Kwun Tong in August. The new space was designed for activity-based working and promotes collaboration, creativity and flexibility.

With the move, Arcadis Hong Kong’s business lines of quantity surveying, project management and business advisory, and design and engineering, will be housed under one roof for the first time.  The company’s new 78,000 square foot office spread over three floors, connected via internal staircases.

People and community are Arcadis’ top priorities which is why there are wellness rooms, nursing mother facilities and recharge quiet zones to cater to people’s needs to support their wellbeing.

Each floor has two large neighbourhood squares and various huddle spaces to facilitate face-to-face interaction, encouraging its people to share experiences, nurture creativity and work as a cohesive team.

Seventy eight per cent of desks are sit/stand desks to help promote activity and movement during office hours.

In an activity-based working environment, everyone is free to choose the workplace that best suits their work style, the type of task they need to perform and how they will collaborate with others.

As part of Arcadis’ commitment to social responsibility, the company has partnered with a café vendor who sources coffee beans responsibly from local Indonesian farmers. The café has worked hard at managing unnecessary consumption and eliminated disposable cups and the use of single-use plastics in its operations.
