50/60 Station Road wins award for best commercial workplace

The British Council of Offices (BCO) held its regional awards for the Midlands & Central England last week, with 50/60 Station Road picking up the accolade for best commercial workplace.

The British Council of Offices (BCO) held its regional awards for the Midlands & Central England last week, with 50/60 Station Road picking up the accolade for best commercial workplace. The awards, held virtually this year, celebrate the best office developments across the UK and are recognised as one of the industry’s most prestigious honours.

Designed by award-winning architecture practice Grimshaw, the nine-storey building offers 156,000-sq-ft of Grade A office space with a communal, welcoming entrance. The office building, which comprises a rooftop garden terrace and on-site cycle facilities, is home to a number of prominent occupiers, including WeWork, Amazon and Samsung AI.

The BCO jury felt that the state-of-the-art building at the centre of the CB1 development contributes successfully to the city’s technology quarter and “exudes quality” with a clear focus on the health and wellbeing of its occupiers.

Danny Parmar, chairman of the BCO Midlands & East Anglia committee said: “Many congratulations to 50/60 Station Road for being awarded the Best Commercial Workplace. This was one of several outstanding entries in this year’s BCO regional awards programme and reflects both the strength of our sector and the increasing demands placed upon it to deliver market-leading work environments.”

50/60 Station Road will now compete with winning offices from other regions across the UK in a virtual National Awards ceremony on 26 January 2021.
