Enra moves into eco-friendly office

Enra Specialist Finance has moved into an environmentally friendly office in the centre of Watford to accommodate its continuing growth and meet the firm’s ESG requirement for a sustainable working space.

This follows an increase in staff numbers by one-third with 66 new starters, taking the headcount to 180 across Enra and its subsidiaries, including specialist lender West One and brokerage firms Enterprise Finance and Vantage Finance.

The new building is SKA rated, meaning its fit-out has been environmentally assessed and benchmarked by RICS-approved assessors.

Obtaining a SKA rating requires achieving the prescribed SKA standard in over 100 'good practice' measures covering energy, CO2 emissions, waste and water management, materials, pollution, wellbeing, and transport.

The new premises offer ample space to host clients and partners for events, as well as a collaborative and inclusive working environment for staff.

Stephen Hogg, chief operating officer at Enra Specialist Finance, said: “I am tremendously excited about our new office; it represents a huge shift in the quality and quantity of the space we can offer our staff and a major investment in the future of the firm.

“We have designed the new office to be an appealing, comfortable place to work with high quality spaces that support different ways of working, including quiet space in our new library, a large breakout area for presentations and events, as well as more traditional desk-based and collaboration areas.

“Our company culture and ESG strategy are very focused on creating a supportive working environment for our colleagues, facilitating great customer service, and minimising our environmental footprint as much as possible. 

“The new office represents massive progress against all of these objectives and heralds a really exciting time for Enra as we continue to grow our business.”
