Description
The World Trade Organization – WTO – is an international organization whose purpose is to open up markets for the benefit of all. The WTO currently has its headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland, and employs approximately 850 staff members. It is located at the Centre WilliamRappard (CWR), rue de Lausanne. In its current configuration, the building is not big enough to accommodate the entire WTO staff. To respond to the Organization's development needs while avoiding a proliferation of annexes, the WTO has decided to concentrate all its activities on a single site by renovating and enlarging its current headquarters. The meeting rooms, offices and common areas will be renovated and upgraded to bring them into line with the activities of the Secretariat and Members.
One of the aims of this renovation work is to improve the utilization of space in the offices and common working areas. By using a more modular structure, many of the existing offices can be adapted to accommodate two or more staff members in better conditions. At the same time, more open plan office space can be made available for certain functions. Thanks to these measures, theCWR's capacity should increase from 650 to about 800 staff members. The draft master plan provides for the renovation, enlargement and extension of theCWR building in the framework of a single project.
