Date & Time:March 8, 2022 4:00 pm

This event has taken place.  See the post event report here.


Queen Mary University of London has opened its doors to Dept W – its new building for professional services staff fully designed specifically for agile working.

Dept W was formerly the Wickham’s department store, an iconic neoclassical landmark which, for historic reasons, incorporates the facade of the former Spiegelhalter’s jewellery firm.

HEDQF invite you to hear from Richard Halsall, Assistant Director for Strategic and Capital Development, and Gareth Gillmer, Head of Strategic Space Management at Queen Mary University of London, Paul Menadue from IBI Group, and Dan Wakelin from Henigan Consulting Group to hear about the scheme, the implementation of Agile Working for QMUL’s professional services teams, and some thoughts on the future of University workspaces.


4pm – Arrivals, tea & coffee

4:30pm – Presentations from QMUL, IBI Architects & HCG

5:30pm – Tours / networking and drinks sponsored by Overbury
