BuroHappold’s commercial team look beyond the building. Our engineers no longer look at a structure as just a place to live and work, they are looking further, designing spaces that not only work for businesses, but also create happy and healthy communities.
A focus on holistic transformations has been key to the BuroHappold commercial team’s success in 2018. Clients increasingly want people-focused design with emphasis not only on the building itself, but the spaces around it. Computational and evidence-based engineering allows BuroHappold to deliver high-performance commercial projects that succeed on every level. Our work in developing our workplace analytics capability and pioneering building performance and asset optimisation show our forward-thinking outlook this year.
Projects continuing in 2018 include Here East, a new creative hub for the capital. Based in the vast former International Broadcasting Centre (IBC), Here East is now home to both global and start-up companies side by side, with the aim of bringing technical ideas and innovations to life. A key element of the design was the need to develop a space that was highly flexible so that it could be sub-let to a wide range of businesses, encouraging the growth of both high-tech creativity and high-value employment opportunities.
The David Attenborough Building, University of Cambridge, has won multiple awards this year. Refurbishment of the building, carried out with Nicholas Hare Architects, won the Engineering and Sustainability Project of the Year, Best Conservation, Alteration or Extension, and Considerate Contractors awards.
On a larger scale, we are involved with International Quarter London, located in the southeast quarter of the London 2012 Olympic site. Our role has been to look at how we can provide public recreational space as well as work on two new buildings which will house ultra-efficient residential accommodation that provides high level, sustainable urban living.
We are an award-winning team, and are building on our portfolio of clients who rely on our ability to tackle complex, multidisciplinary projects with flair and ease. By working directly with clients from the very start, we are able to advise and influence design, creating commercial buildings that promote positive interaction between people and truly perform.
