The move follows the Group’s decision to close its rented office at The Point in Paddington Basin, in line with its new Corporate Strategy which places greater emphasis on customers, core services and the delivery of better value-for-money across all its operations.
The relocation of the Group’s head office teams to the west London town centre will save the 38,000-home housing association over £3.4mn per year, freeing up funds for reinvestment into improving homes and services for customers.
The London and southern England based Group, which manages nearly 10,000 homes West of Central London, relocated nearly 400 colleagues to 113 Uxbridge Road last month – one of its original and fully owned offices.
It’s also hoped that the move will encourage colleagues in central services and housing operations to work closer together to better serve customers.
Ian Wardle, Chief Executive Officer at A2Dominion, said: “We’re always looking at ways to improve the services that we offer our customers and providing value-for-money is a key aspect of this.
“With the increase in hybrid working, our Paddington office was no longer being used to its full potential, so we made a swift choice to better meet the needs of our organisation and customers.
“The move to Ealing allows us to maximise our hybrid working arrangements by bringing central and customer-facing teams closer together. This is also part of our drive to have a more local and visible presence in the communities that we serve. I’d like to thank all of our colleagues for the understanding and cooperation they’ve shown throughout this transition.”
A2Dominion changed its registered address from The Point, 37 North Wharf Road, London W2 1BD to 113 Uxbridge Road, Ealing, London W5 5TL.
