At the time this was by far our largest project in 2010. But we weren’t just the architects on this project: we busied ourselves in assembling the land deal that brought forward this highly visible major road junction site as well as a large site for housing that joined it to the rest of the town.
We were applauded at planning committee for our brave approach to design upon this gateway site into the town.We worked in close collaboration with the construction team on this project as a part of a partnership contract.
Two of the happy, and unintended, outcomes of this project was the ‘gin and tonic’ balcony from one of the offices as well as the necessary re- design of one of the main offices to re- orientate desks as staff were spending more time staring at the view as was necessary! We built this 3 storey building in just under 20 months. Bearing in mind several months was spent decontaminating the site, this was a good outcome.

After being in such a small, rabbit warren type building, the new office is a huge benefit to our working environment. We have much more space and, more importantly, the different teams are now sat together.
