Mixology Awards 2012


Scott Brownrigg’s Interior Design project for Quintiles EMEA Headquarters at Green Park, Reading has been shortlisted for this year’s Mixology 12 Awards within the Large Commercial Interiors category.

Now in its seventh year, these prestigious awards recognise the ground breakers and boundary pushers of the commercial interiors sector and are judged by an independent panel of experts. The fit out for Quintiles’ new EMEA Headquarters at Green Park was completed in just 16 weeks and provides an inspirational and sustainable workplace for Quintiles, consolidating their staff from three Bracknell offices, into the 121,350 sq ft BREEAM ‘Excellent’ building.

The building, which last week received the BCO Fit Out of Workspace Award for the South West of England, Thames Valley and South Wales region, currently accommodates 550 Quintiles employees, and supports dynamic working in both open plan workstations and cellular hot offices. It incorporates many specialist facilities such as a business lounge, an executive and boardroom suite, client conference and meeting suite, a telepresence videoconferencing room, staff training facilities and a 200 seat restaurant with external terrace.

The focal point of the building is the spectacular full height linear atrium, which incorporates striking sky boxes designed as part of the fitting out, that create further break out and meeting spaces which cantilever out into the atrium from various levels.
