 NOR17-Moneypenny

Moneypenny, Western Gateway, Wrexham           

Despite working within a tight budget, this building succeeds in setting a benchmark for the telecoms industry. Design touches, such as a tree house, demonstrate how fun can be functional, and that this spacious office has the wellbeing of the Moneypenny team at its heart.

The judges loved the inclusive and collaborative spirit that shines through in every detail, right down to giving staff vouchers to decorate their own desks.

 SCOT17-IneosHQ

Ineos HQ, Grangemouth, 1 Inchyra Road

The petrochemical manufacturer’s new HQ replaces several disparate and dated buildings with one modern energy efficient workplace.  The flexible office space is configured around a central atrium and has created a completely new and collaborative working culture.

The judges were impressed by how staff from 19 buildings have been brought together, and integrated seamlessly into one truly modern city centre HQ which any corporate occupier would be proud of.

 LON17-SkyCentral

Sky Central, Grant Way, Isleworth, Middlesex

Sky has created a genuinely unique and hugely dynamic working environment for its team in Sky Central in Isleworth, according to the BCO judges. Housed beneath a spectacular and light enhancing structural timber ceiling, the judges said the large floor plates break down into a series of spaces that are varied, individual and yet unified. They added that despite housing up to 3,400 people, the overarching sense is one of calm, productive collaboration and creativity that is entirely suited to the nature of Sky's media-led business.

 MID17-Marston'sHouse

Marston's House, Brewery Road, Wolverhampton

The BCO judging panel agreed that Marston’s House exudes pride and encourages creativity, innovation and a new modern way of working. By utilising and enhancing the original building, the judges said, it was made fit for purpose as home for a forward-thinking pub operator and brewer. The judges also noted that the workspace is a marriage of informal workspaces and meeting areas that encourage agile working with workspaces such as team tables, quiet booths and individual desks. They praised the new atrium and connecting bridges which they said enhance the movement of people between departments and encourage relationships with the wider business

South of England & South Wales

 SW17-StJames'sPlace

SJP II, 2 Tetbury Road, Cirencester

SJP II was designed as an extension to the existing St. James’s Place office to meet the expansion requirements of St. James’s Place Wealth Management. Using a similar form and palette of high quality natural materials as the existing building, the BCO judging panel praised the development team at Citygrove for creating a modern, contemporary building in SJP II that fits comfortably into the traditional streetscape of this Cotswold town. The design has maximised development on this constrained site by incorporating the plant within the main building volume, the judges said, maintaining key views across town and exploiting the level change across the site to incorporate two levels of car parking with a wing of the building. The judges added that the feeling of quality created with the building’s exterior carries on to the inside, with natural light flooding into the office space that has been fitted out using natural materials to create a calm atmosphere.
