COEL’s new property head hails dawn of agile working

As we emerge from the pandemic and embrace a new era of ‘agile’ working and flexible workspaces, COEL has the innovation to succeed, says new Head of Property Services, Daniel Fordham. Cambridge-based COEL specialise in high-quality office and laboratory refurbishment, working closely with science and technology clients, to create modern and forward-thinking working environments. “Agile working is set to be at the forefront of commercial workspace decisions as we come out of lockdown,” says Daniel. “It was something that was always on the horizon, but the pandemic has brought it forward several years – and so for COEL to already be pioneering well-thought-out agile workspaces, makes this an exciting time to be part of the team.”
