Maintaining the functionality of this building during its redevelopment was paramount to the project and the important and sensitive work being carried out by its staff.
The alteration and conversion of an existing tank hall and the infill and over-roof of an existing internal atrium allowed for the creation of new office floor plates and welfare facilities.
The completion of the works introduced a work space that paralleled the modern technical research and development that is at the core of the MBDA business.
The project won the 2008 BCO awards southern region for best recycled / refurbished building.
Similar to the works completed to the 20W building in Bristol the client wanted to provide an enhanced working environment for their office and administration staff at Stevenage.
This resulted in the enclosure of an existing atrium to form a usable break-out and company function area.
