With Crawley Town Hall officially opened in March, we are delighted with our client’s reaction: “I just wanted to say thank you for your support and input over the last 6 years. The Project has benefited considerably from your experience and challenge”, said Nigel Sheehan, Head of Partnership Services, Crawley.
We are really pleased to see that the multi-function civic hall has been used in more alternative configurations than we anticipated, all possible thanks to the high degree of flexibility of the design.
Making use of efficiencies from open plan, flexible working, the shared foyer and a sub-divisible civic chamber, allowed us to consolidate council space at the lower levels with the benefit of rental income of the commercial offices above, lower running costs and reduced carbon emissions for the council.
The BREEAM rated and highly flexible office building was designed by our sister company Cartwright Pickard, to our enhanced client accommodation brief. Working closely with the council as client advisers our role expanded to include workplace consultancy and interior design early on.
