7th October 2019
After having won the regional competitions, Sheppard Robson has been awarded three National BCO awards for 2019.
The winning projects include:
Deloitte HQ, 1 New Street Square, London for Fit Out of Workplace
The design of Deloitte’s HQ has had a major impact on the business: It has helped drive efficiency, enabled flexibility, improved connectivity, attracted talent and encouraged relationship building. It is no surprise that in achieving all this is has matched and exceeded BCO guidelines. 1 New Street Square is the centrepiece of ‘Creating Spaces’, Deloitte’s programme of transforming its UK and Switzerland workplaces to reflect and affect positively the changing way that the consultant works. The firm’s new London campus gives a stage for the five principles of that strategy - uniqueness, connectivity, simplicity, relevance and inspirational – to be put into action.
Ingenuity House, Interserve UK Hub, Elmdon Trading Estate, Birmingham for the Innovation Award
Ingenuity House gives Interserve a healthy and inspirational working environment which has transformed the global services support firm’s ways of working. The new building, developed on a brownfield site, will bring together more than 1,200 employees from four offices across the West Midlands into a single operational hub, making joint working between the teams easier and improving efficiency. Ingenuity House has also been developed to evidence everything that the multi-faceted company is capable of – such as design and facilities management. Extensive user research resulted in a range of work settings that cater to the teams’ specific needs.
Hanover, Corporation Street, NOMA, Manchester for best Refurbished / Recycled Workplace
Hanover is a stunning refurbishment of a notable Grade II listed building that sits at the heart of NOMA – a rapidly evolving 20-acre mixed-use neighbourhood in Manchester city centre. An iconic part of the cityscape, the building has been lovingly restored and reimagined, blending heritage with stunning contemporary design to create 90,000 sq ft of Grade A office space with 30,000 sq ft of retail and leisure. A stunning example of Edwardian Baroque architecture, and the earliest surviving commercial warehouse built by the Co-operative Wholesale Society (CWS), Hanover formerly existed as two buildings – a 1904 drapery warehouse and 1909 office with additional storage space.
