Yoox Net-A-Porter Group has unveiled a new Tech Hub in the MediaWorks building at the White City Place development.

It will be home to a 500-strong team of technologists who will drive the group’s future growth.

YNAP's CEO Federico Marchetti officially declared the facility open in a ceremony attended by the architect of the space Sir Nicholas Grimshaw and London’s deputy mayor for business Rajesh Agrawal.

Marchetti said: “We are happy to invest in London and we are here to revolutionise the luxury industry,”. A further 100 jobs are expected to be created at the facility in the coming two years and YNAP is also investing in the community with a partnership with Imperial College London, called Imperial Codelab, to teach local schoolchildren technology skills such as coding.

Grimshaw described the 70,000 sq ft facility, which features six “tea rooms”, video conferencing pods, and many flexible and collaborative working spaces as “one of the most human spaces” around. “We set out to create a space that is good for humanity,” he said. “We have gone away from the regimented office space,” he continued, adding the space was designed to be flexible and could be reconfigured based on staff feedback.

Deputy mayor Agrawal, who is himself an entrepreneur having founded London-based commercial foreign exchange company RationalFX, described Marchetti’s decision to build the hub in London as “a smart move”. “We have the largest tech eco-system in Europe. We have 46,000 tech companies with 240,000 employees,” he said.

Stanhope's Broadcast Centre at White City Place is one of the first buildings to achieve Wired Certification.

WiredScore recently launched the Connectivity Ratings Scheme, an initiative developed in partnership with the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson MP, to boost connectivity across London using the trusted Wired Certification programme. In conjunction with this launch, ten notable London buildings have achieved Wired Certification, the international standard developed by WiredScore that distinguishes best-in-class Internet connectivity in office buildings.

In order to achieve Wired Certification, buildings must meet many standards of telecom and property industries. These standards include the number and quality of internet service providers, the bandwidth capabilities, and the reliability of connections based on the building’s infrastructure.

Stanhope director, Henry Williams said: “Stanhope is committed to providing world-class office space across London. We are proud that Broadcast Centre at White City Place is among the first buildings in London to be awarded the Platinum Wired Certified seal, demonstrating our commitment to providing the first class IT connectivity and tech infrastructure that businesses need.”
