A small village feel has been created by incorporating a central atrium which provides restaurant, shop, casual meeting and breakout areas and a major presentation space. The restoration of the original listed building and reorganisation of space has increased the building’s capacity by 38% and provided a variety of work settings.
Nick Kemp, MD of BDG McColl, said: “We are delighted to have won this award, and see this as a recognition of the strong partnership between client, design team, and contractors on this project in working closely together to create and deliver solutions that are relevant to Standard Life’s needs to efficiently and effectively carry out their business.”
