News: 26 April 20179 Greyfriars Wins BCO Award!

Our Architecture team’s refurbishment of 9 Greyfriars in Reading has won a BCO Award! Winning the Refurbishment/Recycled Workplace category for the South of England and South Wales, the judges highlighted that the project “stood out through the scale of its ambition and consistent quality”.

The development, delivered on behalf of McKay Securities, has seen the transformation of the obsolete 1980s office block into Grade A office space. The first building to be credited as BREEAM Outstanding in the region and rated EPC A, the building is now one of the most sustainable and cost effective buildings in the South of England.

Positioned next to the Reading Station Regeneration, 9 Greyfriars is one of the first buildings to be completed as part of the redevelopment.

Romy Panesar, Architectural Associate in our Reading team said:

“We’re delighted that this project has been recognised by the British Council of Offices, amongst a variety of innovative competition, for the high quality refurbishment. In such a fantastic location in the centre of Reading, it’s great to see the workplace come to life once more, with flexible working space and facilities which sit within a truly sustainable building”.

The winner of the awards were announced in Bristol May 4th 2017. All winners from the Regional Awards will compete in their categories at a national level, in the National BCO Awards on Tuesday 3 October. See more here.
