500 Brook Drive, Green Park
500 Brook Drive is situated on Green Park, a 73 hectare (180 acre) business park, close to Reading town centre. The five storey office building has been developed to the highest standards of occupier comfort, energy efficiency and environmental amenity, future flexibility was also a key consideration. The building has a bold sculpted shape that wraps around a full height central atrium. The entrance is a glazed cube, centred within the full height glazed façade, shaded by the oversailing roof and flanked by two opaque glass-clad stair towers. Further staircases form external sculptural features, unique in their integral structural support they use an inner string cut from a single steel tube, which takes the form of a helix ribbon. The project was awarded a BCO Regional Award and an OAS Award in 2010. Occupied by Quintiles, its fit-out by Scott Brownrigg Interior Design won the BCO Best Fit-Out of Workplace Award in 2012.
