Our designs for the redevelopment of our historic offices in Epsom will give staff working at Woodcote Grove more modern, efficient and flexible working spaces. The design is intended to meet the highest sustainability targets, including BREEAM Excellent and an A rated Energy Performance Certificate (EPA).
The new design will also encourage more interaction between our multi-disciplinary design, engineering and project management teams. The internal spaces at Woodcote Grove give the building its distinct identity, with a central atrium designed as the office ‘hub’ to encourage informal interactions between teams and create a social culture that makes working an enjoyable and motivating experience.
Over 20 disciplines from across Atkins – including architects, building services, structural engineers, archaeologists and ecologists – have come together on the project. We took a truly inter-disciplinary approach at the early stages of the project, working together to get the fundamentals of the design right.
