Hertz Headquarters, Uxbridge

Hertz Uxbridge Projects Ridge & Partners LLP

Hertz Europe and Hertz UK, based in separate locations, decided to co-locate in a single new headquarters building in central Uxbridge. Hertz identified a new six-storey building as an ideal location for its total of 400 members of staff and, having previously worked with Ridge, commissioned us to undertake an acquisition survey. Based on the strength of our multi-disciplinary capabilities, Ridge was subsequently appointed to provide full design and management services to the project.

Hertz challenged our professional team to provide a headquarters that reflected its corporate image while remaining within the constraints of the budget. Working in close consultation with the senior management of Hertz, we considered various interior design and space planning options before proposing an exciting design concept.

Our innovative solution minimises conventional cellular space while conversely providing a variety of open-plan areas. Throughout the 55,000 sq ft office space, bespoke environments of different levels of privacy and oral and visual connection create a variety of zones, each with an individual character reflecting the particular corporate requirement.

The building offers four floors of office space, two storeys of basement parking, a gym and a café, for which Ridge assisted with placing an operator. The environment we have designed is legible, providing clear orientation and proximity to support facilities. The design also optimises the penetration of natural daylight.

The success of the move-management operation was based upon the achievement of strict scheduling and accurate execution of the relevant works. Ridge worked very closely with the Hertz Property Team to ensure that the project progressed according to the agreed timetables and that all the required changes to the project scope were correctly communicated to the main contractor and then properly and successfully implemented.
