Weybridge Business Park
Standard Life Investments
Scott Brownrigg completed the phase one redevelopment for Weybridge Business Park for Standard Life Investments. The Practice was briefed to help provide a new identity to the 1980’s business park and bring it up to modern office standards. Phase one has replaced a dated building with a brand new three-storey, 3,716 sq m (40,000 sq ft) office building of an identical footprint. A second building has been stripped back to its frame and divided to form two individual, two-storey buildings of 2,787 sq m (30,000 sq ft) and 1,858 sq m (20,000 sq ft). This approach has delivered 11,000 sq ft of additional lettable office space and created three flexible, future-proofed office buildings. All buildings have been designed to maximise natural daylight. Improved building entrances, and new arrival approaches have improved the staff and visitor experience, whilst providing each building with a defined presence on the park.
The positioning of the three buildings has created a public realm square, whilst the re-masterplanning of the park has succeeded in opening it up to the adjacent River Wey. The new layout allows for a more open environment on the site and creates a visual connection to the river. Three new buildings designed by International design practice, Scott Brownrigg deliver 90,000 sq ft of contemporary, energy efficient office space that will support local businesses whilst also attracting world class companies into the Borough of Runnymede.
The transformation of the development has provided both hard and soft landscaping, added 70 covered secure cycle spaces and accommodates 261 car parking spaces across the site. Six electric car bays allowing electric cars to charge have also been installed.
