Oliver Thomas, Senior Director at CBRE comments:

“The whole design is focussed on delivering a first-class experience for staff and clients. The staff working areas have been arranged into strategic ‘neighbourhoods’ where teams are encouraged to share space and resources, collaborate and ultimately be more productive. There has also been significant investment in the staff breakout and informal meeting spaces to encourage wellbeing and interaction.”

The design also incorporates a stylish Client Lounge in the reception area where a TopBrewer Pro coffee machine has been installed to enhance the visitor experience, as Oliver explains:

“A particularly impressive feature of the new office is the Client Lounge where guests are encouraged to take advantage of the great service, incredible views over the city and enjoy a freshly brewed coffee from the integrated TopBrewer machine.”

The CBRE team had previously experienced the TopBrewer at other offices in Manchester so were pleased when TP Bennett included it in the design scheme.

“The TopBrewer concept fits perfectly into our new Client Lounge with its sleek design, advanced technology and overall ‘wow factor’ experience,” adds Oliver.

The installation is the latest in the Manchester region as word continues to spread about the TopBrewer ‘iPad coffee machine’ and its unparalleled ability to complement the latest workplace trends, such as collaboration, wellbeing and connected technology.


Simon Bracken, Managing Director & Co-Founder at Scanomat UK & Ireland comments:

“The CBRE team have demonstrated their project management expertise to deliver an extremely impressive office space in the heart of Manchester, reinforcing their presence in the North West region. We are delighted to have installed a TopBrewer, fitted with a steaming hot water upgrade for the tea drinkers, in the Client Lounge as we continue to expand into the North and build on the success of TopBrewer in the workplace sector.”
