Modern office buildings promote active workforce, the importance of End of Trip facilities

End of trip facilities are increasingly becoming a key factor in office accommodation decisions.

Workers expect their employers to provide quality end of trip facilities – such as bike storage, showers and storage lockers – not only to facilitate active transport for personal health reasons, but in response to Australians’ greater environmental consciousness.

As people look to utilise alternate methods of travel other than driving alone in a high emission car, end of trip facilities can actually help companies recruit and retain staff.

This is particularly the case in the nation’s capital. Proportionally, more people in the ACT ride bikes for transport than in any other capital city.

“Canberrans commitment to active transport and its many benefits has seen office building owners prioritise installation of or upgrade of end of trip facilities,” Colliers International State CEO, Paul Powderly said.

“A good example of an office building whose design and position supports active transport options, is 45 Benjamin Way in the heart of the Belconnen town centre.”

This A-Grade office building, which currently has tenancies of between 873sqm and 5,426sqm available, is ideally located adjacent to a major bus interchange and has modern end of trip facilities.

“Active transport gets cars off our roads and reduces congestion. People might walk or ride to and from public transport or use their own power to get to work, such as cycling the whole way,” Colliers International Office Leasing Executive, Grace Wang said.

“45 Benjamin Way is also close to Lake Ginninderra which draws people out of their office at lunchtime and encourages them to get fresh air and exercise on the walking paths.”

With the ACT Government investing in initiatives and infrastructure to change people’s commuting habits, buildings like 45 Benjamin Way have a vital role to play in making Australia a healthier nation.
