Creation of a new high performing and technology driven activity-based workplace – The Hub, in the heart of a new large-scale data centre campus.

The challenge
Working with the client’s project standards TTSP were appointed to design a self-contained workplace based upon the design developed by the client’s in-house teams based in the USA. The focus was to create an overall space that enabled collaboration and socialising for people that are based on a large-scale data centre campus in Northern Europe.  TTSP also worked with localisation statutory requirements and received cultural guidance that impacted and changed the clients design standards while also investigating the integration of modern methods of construction/ DfMA and sustainability.

Our approach

With our central lead consultant role and the full European design team being under our control, early engagement with the users and client team was key.  The project was delivered in LOD BIM 350 so regular virtual team and client meetings to enable collaboration and identify design issues were set up on a regular basis along with design stage ‘Page Turns’ reviews. Our creation of the interior Look and Feel, exterior and landscaping designs supported the client’s brand and the local team’s expectations.

Measures of success

Delivering a highly efficient and performing building with an interior space that supported activity-based working in which the local client team are able to socialise and collaborate 24/7 & internationally. Our early engagement & organisation of workshops created ‘open’ discussions amongst the client and design team. Our full understanding and design development of the construction approach respected materiality, sustainability and modern methods of construction.
