​Springboard Centre

Competitors were asked to design a first class, innovative, flagship managed workspace on a business park in Stokesley, North Yorkshire.

Invited Civic and Commercial

The winning design by McDowell+Benedetti is innovative and highly sustainable in both servicing and construction.

A key requirement was for the building to be environmentally sustainable and energy efficient. The client wanted a landmark building to attract and promote young innovative new businesses.

The building creates intimate flexible spaces conducive to how small businesses operate. It is orientated on a north/south axis to maximise daylight through a central atrium which opens up two rows of offices on two floors.

The result is an exemplar sustainable building model, which could be repeated in other locations with minimum modification.
