The Cre8tive touch: award-winning projects

We’re thrilled that not one but two of our projects have been recognised by the British Council of Offices – both winning a prestigious regional award in the “Fit Out of Workplace” category.

ASOS office fit out project

The new ASOS contact centre building in Leavesden, which we worked on for ISG and Spacelab, won the Midlands and Central England regional award, while the new UK and Ireland headquarters building for Bayer won the award for the South East Region.

ASOS is an online fashion retailer with a huge global reach, with upwards of more than 16 million active customers last year. The office building, designed to house its dedicated customer service department, was praised by the BCO judges for its “collaborative, agile working environment with a strong emphasis on employee well-being and development” and also highlighted “the use of task-based zones, differing materials and furniture design, in addition to expansive canteen and gym facilities that contribute to a creative and productive environment, unique in the call centre market.”

We worked with Tetris as main contractor on the new headquarters for Bayer, a global life sciences company which focuses on research and development of solutions to create a sustainable future. The BCO regional judging panel rated the consultative approach to the design with staff to create a “fit out that is elegant and stylish without compromising functionality.” The result is, according to the judges, “a space that both reflects the company’s culture and values, and provides a variety of workplace settings for its agile workforce.”

One of the BCO’s primary objectives is to define excellence in office space and its prestigious awards are an excellent way to provide public recognition for top quality design and functionality. Established in 1992, the competition has gone from strength-to-strength with many new projects keen to make the shortlist in each of the six categories; Commercial Workplace; Corporate Workplace; Fit Out of Workplace; Refurbished/Recycled Workplace; Projects up to 1500m2 and Innovation.

The five regional finalists in the ‘Fit Out of Workplace’ category will now go head-to-head at the national final which will be held on Tuesday 2nd October.
