Motorola European Headquarters - Basingstoke

Location: Chineham Business Park, Basingstoke
Size: 10,700m²

Brief Description:

This was a fast-track design and build fit-out contract to take the two new buildings from a developers
Cat-A standard to a fully functioning administrative and engineering campus.

Freeman Beesley provided design services for all mechanical and electrical services including air-conditioning,
fire protection and standby power systems.

Points of Interest:

This project was significant for both the technically diverse use of the space and the speed with
which the contract had to be completed.

The early design workshop sessions took place in November 2004 and the buildings were eventually
occupied in August 2005 - a period of just 10 months!

In order to achieve such a tight programme, Freeman Beesley worked closely with the Client and the
M&E sub-contractors on site to ensure the designs and ongoing construction works were in full accordance
with an evolving brief.

The buildings serve 1000 staff and they incorporate a suite of meeting and presentation rooms, a
staff restaurant and associated kitchen, two fully protected computer rooms with standby power and
fire suppression and four test & research laboratories.

The building was Regional Winner for the 2006 BCO awards for Fit-out (large projects) in the South of England & South Wales.
