Designed from scratch to revolutionise the future of work, this Taguspark building officially opened today, a 12-million-euro venture to build an example of the best facilities in the world, in Portugal. It will house the headquarters of PHC Software and is where the Portuguese multinational aims to redefine the concept of the office and provide the best working experience in Portugal. The new facilities, christened the “house of digital business” by PHC, boast 4,000 m2 of workspace for 300 employees, and two more floors for parking.
The three floors above ground, plus two below ground, add up to 8,000 m2, with a capacity for 300 employees and 250 parking spaces. PHC Software’s new headquarters, in Taguspark, was designed with the future of work in mind, offering room for creativity and collaboration. More than just a space, it is a new way of thinking about the office and the workplace.
The facilities offer natural light at all workstations and a terrace with fantastic sea views. Emphasis has also been given to acoustic comfort, to increase focus and productivity. With a new and modern work concept in mind, the company has various spaces, namely auditoriums, meeting rooms, recording studios, leisure and wellness areas and rooms for the incubation of startups, among others.
“Today marks an important milestone for Taguspark, as the Knowledge City completes another building from scratch to host a Portuguese company of international importance, PHC Software. This was a project implemented in partnership right from the start, to provide PHC with facilities that offer its employees the best workplace experience. I am sure that the office concept presented today will set future trends in the world of work. We are delighted to see PHC come to Taguspark, the ideal place for it to continue innovating and developing its brand and services” said Eduardo Baptista Correia, CEO of Taguspark.
“We wanted to go beyond the conventional idea of a company and create a true House of Digital Business, where our employees have all they need to be highly productive, with a strong emphasis on wellness. These facilities are more than a building, they are a true concept that sets us up to create an incredible experience for employees and customers. We want to create even more value for society”, highlightedRicardo Parreira, CEO of PHC Software.
