One Friargate is the first major building in the Friargate Business District and is part of the wider regeneration of this part of Coventry. The scheme is home to Coventry City Council and has facilitated a major transformation in the way the Council operates. The building delivers significant cost savings to the Council as well as introducing open plan working, desk sharing and a low parking provision.

The building contributes to the wider area by the inclusion of an informal ground floor coffee shop accessible to all and a stunning open plan reception with a show piece white concrete staircase. The development also allowed for the delivery of an attractive walkway between the train station and the historic City Centre.

Rob Van Zyl, Chairman of the Regional Judging Panel will also give a short talk on the 2019 BCO awards. The BCO Awards are widely respected within the commercial property sector. They display the strength of British office design and illustrate a combination of excellence from the clarity of purpose in the brief; ingenuity of product; clever design solutions where appropriate; and delivery on time and in budget. Winning a BCO Award provides members of the project team with a multitude of benefits.
