On Friday night, Leeds project SEW Eurodrive UK Headquarters went on to win against four strong projects in the Commercial category at the RICS Pro Yorkshire Awards.
SEW Eurodrive’s new UK Headquarters is a jewel amongst the existing industrial buildings at its Normanton site. AHR was determined to deliver beautiful architecture, revitalise the existing context and create a positive contribution for building users. Efficient renewable technologies were a high priority in creating an energy efficient building with an aesthetic responding to the client’s market niche of drive engineering. This state-of-the-art development provides SEW Eurodrive with a multi-functional building integrating both Grade A office accommodation and warehouse facilities.
The judges said: “This is a building that genuinely contributes to the overall commercial success and development of the business. It has been carefully and thoughtfully designed to meet the needs of a growing and developing business. Architecturally it is well thought through and the building is very well put together. We were particularly impressed by the work undertaken in identifying the specific needs of the client and efficiencies that could be generated for the business by the construction of this building. Scope for extension and expansion is built in to the planning of the project. The Judges were of the view that this project is a highly successful building, critical to the sustainability and development of the business and likely to be contributed into its long term success for years to come."
