 NOR17-TheOldPostOffice

The Old Post Office, St Nicholas' Street, Newcastle upon Tyne                                   

New life has been breathed into this iconic listed building, extending its longevity and making it fit for the digital generation. The environment inspires and excites with a diverse mix of agile work and meeting spaces, including a roof garden.

The judges felt the modern and lively business space of the winning refurbishment was worthy of the trophy alone, but the fact it was delivered with a limited budget and in a fully operational working environment made it even more impressive.

100 Queen Street, Glasgow

This project successfully overcame the problematic issues of retaining a substantial listed landmark building to deliver excellent office accommodation with exceptional attention to detail. The new two story extension integrates seamlessly with the existing facade.

The way the team embraced every challenge and overcame each obstacle impressed the judges, but to then go on and create some exceptional office accommodation in the City Centre, made this project a clear winner in the eyes of the judges.

 LON17-20EastbourneTerrace

20 Eastbourne Terrace

The BCO judges were impressed that through a clever refurbishment, Fletcher Priest and Land Securities took a 1960’s building in Paddington with low floor to ceiling heights and produced what looks like a new build office with 20 Eastbourne Terrace. An increase in floor area has arisen, the judges noted, by reorganising the core and staircase as well as through intelligent extensions to the office floorplates which now provide excellent views from the office.

 MID17-TheOfficers'MessBusin

The Officers' Mess Business Centre, Royston Road, Duxford, Cambridgeshire

The BCO judges were impressed by the transformation of the listed Officer’s Mess building in IWM Duxford, from its’ previous condition of disrepair and into the vibrant and thriving Officers' Mess Business Centre. The judges highlighted that a vast central atrium has been created within the heart of the complex in a previously derelict external courtyard, housing a business centre, reception café and co-working facilities. They added that the building now offers well-appointed workspace within an inspiring heritage setting, perfect for serviced offices.

South of England & South Wales

 SW17-9Greyfriars

9 Greyfriars Road, Reading

The BCO judges were impressed that as well as boasting an EPC rating of ‘A’, 9 Greyfriars Road was the first building in the South East, outside of London, to have achieved BREEAM ‘Outstanding’. The care and thoughtfulness that led to this considerable achievement has been applied to every element of the project, the judges said. They noted that the entrance and external hard-landscaping has been reconfigured to make the most of a challenging micro-location and the building has been re-clad in high-quality glazing that flood the floorplates with light. In addition, the judges said the reception feels airy, welcoming and generous for a building of this size, and the materials in conjunction with the colour palette, gives the building a sense of style and quality.
