The newly refurbished Galago House in Surrey, the new headquarters of recruitment specialist, Galago Group.

Work has completed on the new sustainable headquarters of recruitment specialist, Galago Group in Croydon.

Leading office interior design consultancy, Office Principles, has transformed Galago House, a 36,700 sq ft self-contained building on Brighton Road, Coulsdon.

The 20-week project has successfully remodelled the building to create a hospitality-led space that encourages occupants to collaborate and connect with one another.

It features a spacious central reception and lounge area, two levels of revamped office space and a new centrally placed break out facility on the first floor.


The SKA Gold accredited refurbishment is characterised by a commitment to strong environmental credentials, including new energy efficient systems which have improved the building’s energy performance to EPC B.

Office Principles has repurposed existing furniture, used BREEAM certified finishes and installed LED lighting throughout. There is also an extensive use of biophilia and planting, including a prominent moss feature wall near the building’s entrance.

Galago Group comprises a collection of expert recruitment companies, specialising in a variety of sectors including healthcare, private nursing, life sciences, engineering and construction.

The firm acquired Galago House to support its continued expansion, and will occupy two floors of the building, with remaining office suites available to let between 2,000-11,600 sq ft.

Tom Parsons, sales director at Office Principles, said: “It’s been a real pleasure to work in partnership with Galago Group. We’ve supported its team throughout the journey of acquiring a new building and moulding it to fit the diverse needs of a modern workplace.

“The refurbishment has undoubtedly delivered on the Group’s vision of a vibrant, welcoming and inclusive environment, with outstanding sustainability credentials. With sub-tenant areas that are presented extremely well, I’m sure there will be considerable interest from other occupiers keen to relocate to Galago House.”
