The Land Rover BAR Americas Cup HQ & Facilities Building was presented with the National BCO Award for Innovation at the BCO Awards Ceremony held on 4th October 2016. The ceremony gives recognition to top quality design and provides a benchmark for excellence in UK workplaces.
Each year the BCO Regional judges are asked to consider all projects for the Innovation Award, with this category only awarded at a National level, recognising a significant level of innovation across a variety of fields.
The facility offers open plan office space, a gym, development and assembly space for the boats, Formula 1 inspired mission rooms and entertainment space. The Visitors Centre at the heart of the facility showcases the sport, innovation, technology and sustainability of the building and the boat.
With its intelligent, ergonomic and economic design, the combination of multiple uses in a unique way, its sustainability and the speed of delivery made this building a worthy 'Innovation' winner.
