The new regional HQ building for Centrica at Blythe Valley provides 11,148 sq m of office space on three floors with a large 3-storey atrium at its heart.

To meet Centrica's requirements the building had to be operational within a 54 week programme.

To achieve this tight timescale, the building was designed in a simple 'H' form enclosed by a skin of curtain walling, which allowed early access for the fit-out contractor.

A second layer of external shading, walkways and feature panels give the building a strong architectural presence.
