Details


Microgaming’s new headquarters opened for business on 31 July 2017, just over two years after construction began. Located on Circular Road and named Sixty Two, the 5-storey office is home to over 120 Microgaming employees. A unique sky bridge joins the new and existing office (Twenty Six), creating a campus for the company.

One of the biggest suppliers of online gaming software, Microgaming’s head office in the Isle of Man is predictably full of spaces where employees can play. The five-storey office houses more than 100 staff members, and features a canteen and coffee shop (with an exclusive Microgaming coffee blend), a darts board, pool tables, a poker table, table tennis table and a library for staff to take time out away from their desks.

Designed with employees front of mind, the office environment fosters a culture of collaboration and communication. There are 16 meeting rooms, hot desks, and phone booths, as well as plenty of break-out areas on every floor. The entire fourth floor of the building is a communal area

A high emphasis has been placed on staff wellbeing with the provision of an in-house gym, a treatment room and a spacious studio to host weekly fitness classes, in addition to a rooftop garden offering stunning views of the island

Microgaming’s new HQ has been named in ‘The 10 coolest offices of 2017’ in the UK, featuring alongside some of the biggest consumer brands.

Key features have been built in to ensure efficient energy and waste management, including KNX/DALI controlled smart lighting that automatically swiches and dims in stages according to both occupancy and natural daylight to reduce consumption.

Ensuring the building is as environmentally friendly as possible, Microgaming, their design team and Legrand have worked closely with BREEAM, the world’s foremost environmental assessment method and rating system for buildings. The 45,000 square feet office is one of the first on the Isle of Man to achieve the BREEAM rating of Excellent, reflecting the company’s strong commitment to sustainability.
