Waterman are pleased that the Royal College of Pathologist’s (RCP) HQ has been nominated for ‘Corporate Workplace’ whilst Devon House has been shortlisted for ‘Recycled / Refurbished Workplace’ at the upcoming London BCO Awards.
The widely respected Regional Awards celebrates the most influential office developments across six categories, demonstrating the importance of space in supporting the wellbeing of staff, increasing efficiency and serving the business over time.
Royal College of Pathologist’s HQ – Corporate Workplace
Home to medical research professionals for over 50 years, the Royal College of Pathologists recently invested in stunning new premises in Aldgate, central London. The new eight-storey headquarters features a double-height entrance atrium with floor to ceiling windows to maximise natural daylight. Designed by Bennetts Associates architects, the scheme includes a suite of state-of-art facilities with a multi-purpose 210-person conference theatre, meeting rooms, office space and examination rooms. Waterman Structures worked closely with the architect to incorporate pioneering concrete techniques into the design. Image © Peter Cook
Devon House – Recycled / Refurbished Workplace
On the south side of St Katharine Docks in London, the existing 1989 six-storey riverside building was renovated into a bespoke 93,000 ft2 Cat A office accommodation and exceptional co-working environment adjacent to Tower Bridge. In addition to comprehensive cycle and shower facilities, the estate offers four beautifully landscaped corner terraces on the fifth floor whilst the south facing terrace, overlooking the River Thames, provides one of the best views in the City. Waterman worked closely alongside Stiff + Trevillion Architects to carry out structural engineering design services across the scheme to create a light and airy contemporary feel.
