Cambridge Assessment, The Triangle Building, Shaftsbury Road, Cambridge                       

Home to the international exam board’s entire team of 2,600 people, the office space is located within the three-sided Triangle Building, Cambridge’s biggest office. Judges noted how the office has been a catalyst for creating a new brand, culture and significant business growth. A key factor in Cambridge Assessment’s success is its focus on employee wellness, as evidenced by changing, shower and cycling provisions, and an in-house Wellbeing Centre. The judges agreed that the workplace supported employees’ mental health through its intelligent use of uplifting artwork, daylight, natural ventilation and views of the city.

Facebook at Rathbone Square, 1 Rathbone Square, London                                   

The development is a high quality, people-focused space built for a variety of uses, including residential and retail use alongside its function as an office. The development is centred around a lively central public square, which sits at the heart of the space and welcomes in the world outside. The judges praised the ‘experience’ created inside the office, which delivers a unique design that strongly represents the Facebook brand.

 19SCOT_16ChurchStreet

16 Church Street, Dumbarton                                   

16 Church Street was awarded both 'Best Corporate Workplace' and the coveted Innovation Award. The judges felt the project tells a compelling story of regeneration, bringing dignity and purpose to an old-fashioned, previously decaying building. The new home of West Dunbartonshire Council has brought the company’s 500 employees closer together over three floors centred around a single atrium, which acts as the social heart of the office. The open atrium makes the most of the natural light and has been designed to cater a range of working styles. The judges were also impressed with the impact 16 Church Street has had on its community as the design decided not to install a staff canteen, in order to encourage employees to support local shops and cafes.

Janet Nash House, Meadowfield Industrial Estate, Durham                                   

Durham’s Janet Nash House took home two awards last night, winning both Best Corporate Workplace and the Innovation Award. The judges were impressed by the range and contrast of spaces, specifically designed to suit the needs of each employee. The BCO panel agreed wellbeing had been firmly planted at the root of the design, with enhanced amenities including a café and gymnasium available to all employees. The judges agreed the emphasis on bringing the outside world in had a dramatic effect on the space, with sheltered outdoor seating areas and a carefully curated planting strategy
