The project itself was very complex and came with its challenges that we successfully overcame and delivered on time.
The building was designed with the aim of introducing agile working, innovative IT and AV solutions, enhancing the working environment for staff and bringing back some of the Civic and historical elements of Slough as the Leadership desired.
Through clever design, we reduced the footprint required which enabled Slough to have 2 floors that they could potentially lease for income generation.
We introduced a biophilic design that incorporated the external natural elements, materials and textures in an indoor environment. Biophilia is known to have positive effects on mental health, wellbeing and workplace productivity.
We also created a state-of-the-art council chamber with a modern twist, new ways of flexible working, meeting spaces, not just relying on desks, project and innovation areas. Majority of all materials and fabrics used and sourced in this project were either recycled or came from sustainable sources, something we are passionate about throughout our work is supporting the environment.
Slough Borough Council headquarters has been a design inspiration for many organisations and local authorities and has received huge accolades.
