Fitted out by Structure Tone, the offices have helped rejuvenate the historic structure
The new offices for Ogilvy Group and MEC in London’s Sea Containers House have won the British Council for Offices’ (BCO) Regional Innovation Award in the annual BCO Awards program.
The BCO’s annual award program recognises the best, most innovative workplaces across the UK, organised into five regions. Sea Containers House earned the Innovation Award for the program’s London/South East Region.
Designed by BDG a+d and fit out by Structure Tone, the 225,000sf new office is now home to Ogilvy and MEC’s over 2,500 staff, transforming this portion of the iconic former hotel into a modern workplace on a prime waterfront location. The renovations included linking the office’s 12 floors through a series of unique staircases, all while keeping the open, bright floor plan to maintain clear sight lines and water views throughout the space.
“Ogilvy & MEC’s new offices are simply stunning” says Dean Manning, managing director of Structure Tone UK. “We are thrilled to see the Sea Containers project honoured with such a prodigious award, particularly in the category of innovation, which is so evident in this inspiring workplace. This award reinforces our position as the market leader in delivering the highest quality of product in the interior fit-out market.”
A testament to the entire team, which includes Colliers International, BDG a+d and ARUP, the Ogilvy Group & MEC project continues to impress the construction industry and has been named as a finalist in the Project of the Year (£20m – £50m) category at the Construction News Awards. The winners will be announced on 13 July 2017.
