ID:SR Sheppard Robson, the architect’s interiors arm, has revealed photography of its work at Bupa Place in Salford Quays.
The project saw the private healthcare company consolidate staff from three buildings into the location, bringing together 2,000 staff across six floors. Much of its operations had been located at Peel’s nearby Victoria, before it moved into the 147,000 sq ft building constructed by Morgan Sindall, which commissioned Chapman Taylor as architect.
The professional team also included Turner & Townsend and Colliers International. Bupa Place was officially opened in September.
ID:SR said that the bulk of workspace is located on the upper floors and to the perimeter of each floorplate, providing daylight into the most heavily used work areas. Collaboration and informal social space encircles the full height central atrium on each floor, with client meeting rooms positioned centrally.
A wellbeing suite is located on the fourth floor containing a contemplation room, occupational health and first aid room.
The ground floor provides flexible break-out workspace for use by employees and visiting clients, as well as a reception area, a 250-cover restaurant, a café and facilities for cyclists.
Marie Leyland, associate partner at ID:SR Sheppard Robson, said: “Considering wellbeing in the workplace was a key consideration when designing this project influencing how we planned the floorplates right through to the final finishes chosen.”
