The European Union Delegation to Kenya has relocated its headquarters from Upper Hill, where it has operated for nearly two decades to Dunhill Towers in Westlands.
The delegation which represents the union’s member states said it wanted an ideal place with state-of-the-art amenities, security and good environment for staff.
Bruno Pozzi, the Deputy head of the delegation of the European Union to Kenya said the EU had been searching for appropriate office space that meets its stringent needs for security, ambience, convenience, amenities and parking for a number of years.
Dunhill Towers is located on Waiyaki Way and is also in close proximity to Sarit Centre and borders the newly-developed Park Inn by Radisson Hotel. Pozzi said a good working environment has a lot of positive impact on not only the welfare of employees but on the business’ bottom line.
“If people are happy with where they work and the environment they walk into each day, they have been proven to be more productive and make fewer mistakes,” he said.
Speaking after announcing the new venue for EU’s Kenya offices, Pozzi said Dunhill Towers is a modern building which meets its current and future needs effectively. EU signed a long-term lease for relocation to Westlands as from October 1.
Dunhill Towers is East Africa’s first Registered Green Star office development that is creating a new benchmark for Grade ‘A’ Offices in Nairobi. “Dunhill Towers has met requirements, making it our building of choice,” Pozzi said.
