Advances in technology are continually transforming the way we work. As a result, what we need from commercial spaces has changed, too: high levels of connectivity to facilitate mobile working and the rapid, global exchange of information, ease of access, and energy efficiency. These all call for a more innovative approach in creating flexible office space.
Employees and clients expect business centres to be integrated with the surrounding community. From our work on Aztec West in Gloucestershire – the UK’s very first business park – to the award-winning Green Park business park in Reading, our innovative structural and design solutions have supported some of the UK’s largest commercial projects.
Engineering of buildings and their sites is a founding value of PBA. We have worked on award-winning designs in the retail and office markets. This includes the refurbishment of office buildings on prominent sites, like Thames Tower in Reading and Layden House in London; expanding usable space, optimising site opportunities and maximising value.
