DSA were instructed to bring a new lease of life to a building which had become outdated and was in the need of modernisation and also reflect the direction the company was going in.
The car park was known to be confusing for visitors and the entrance was un-inviting, the thermal envelope of the building was also problematic for the users as spaces were being un-used due to lack of thermal comfort, mainly due to glass blocks being used on the façade.
Working with the civil engineers, DSA were able to design a new car park solution which created additional spaces, electric charging points and cycle parking. The entrance was re-visited to create a more approachable and inviting space. Whilst the façade was re-visited with new cladding solutions to reflect the companies corporate colour scheme and large double glazed windows replaced the poor glass blocks. The works were completed in late 2018
