Sky, Leeds - Office Fit Out (for COMO)
Sky took possession of three buildings along the dock side in Leeds to create the ‘Digital Centre of Excellence’ northern hub. BDG undertook the Cat A and B design of the new 6,500m2 centre which would accommodate over 700 staff. The buildings were double height empty shells, previously retail units in a mixed-use development. BDG worked with Sky and sub-contractors to develop the internal cores, new mezzanine floors, vertical circulation and flexible workspace creating a dynamic campus with a ‘tech start-up’ mentality, to attract and retain new staff from technology graduates to experienced digital delivery professionals.
Calanpoint works included all the general and specialist joinery; tea and copy points with all cabinetry, work-tops, splashbacks and feature walls; informal meeting zones with banquette seating and fabric wall panelling; WC fit out including laminate WC panels, cubicle dividers, Corian basins and mirrors; central reception desk; café seating; internal doors, frames, architraves and skirtings.
