Network Rail, Square One

With the brief to create a worldclass facility that will support the current and future needs of Network Rail’s business and employees, BDG was appointed to deliver the design of the Manchester office for 1000 employees from 4 sites.


BDG undertook a stringent strategic planning phase, comprising space studies and end-user interviews to determine the exact requirements  of the business and its employees.  


An open plan working environment was introduced with supporting spaces to create an environment that would foster a greater level of interaction and team working.


The scheme incorporates the brand DNA to both provide an office that reflects the professionalism of the business, and visually links different buildings within the portfolio.
