Online gaming giant, Flutter Entertainment, which owns some of the most recognisable brands such as Sky Betting & Gaming, Paddy Power, PokerStars and Betfair, has moved into its new home at No 4 Wellington Place, Leeds.
Office design and build specialists, TSK, completed the project.
The investment consolidates Flutter’s 1,700 plus Leeds-based colleagues into one building on MEPC’s city centre business park, moving from No 2 and No 6 Wellington Place. The new building provides 136,000 sq ft of office space across eight floors.
Flutter has transitioned to a hybrid working model. To support this, it has moved away from fixed desks to introduce a combination of work settings tailored for its teams.
Various working spaces include workbenches, quiet pods, sit/stand desks, digitally enabled meeting spaces and “zen zones” for relaxation.
Social spaces on the top two floors of the building feature south-facing roof terraces overlooking Tower Square.
On the seventh floor, there is a gym, a cafe, beer pump, and amphitheatre presentation area leading to the eighth floor. At the top of the building, the social gaming space is fitted with games consoles, pool tables and shuffleboards.
Julie Thomas-Brooks, lead designer at TSK, said: “We are so proud to have delivered this fast-track design and build project within just six months.
“Throughout the pandemic, we worked closely with Flutter to ensure every detail was carefully considered – from the acoustics to the materials and textures we used.
“Everything you see is purpose-led. The new agile office gives employees a true choice and freedom in how and where they work.”
Jack McMahon, group director of property & procurement at Flutter Entertainment, added: “We are delighted with our new office space which sets a visual and functional benchmark for all of our future offices around the world.
“4 Wellington Place provides our colleagues across varying brands with an office environment optimised for our future ways of working.
“Accessibility and inclusion were key factors in the design of the office, as it was pivotal that our colleagues can enjoy using the building and feel included and supported regardless of their location.”
