As The Bower nears completion, Capita ESA showcase their work

The Bower at 4 Roundwood Avenue Stockley Park, is the first speculative development in the park for 15 years and will be delivered for the Park’s 30th anniversary.

The project’s key objective was to deliver a highly flexible contemporary workplace environment in a destination setting that would exceed the expectations of the market and corporate occupiers.

Capita ESA was tasked with stripping the original late 1980’s building ‘back to frame’ and re-imaging it to deliver a Grade A headquarters building of exceptional quality and flexibility alongside a substantially increased floor area.

The size of the original building has been extended from 123,000ft² to 144,000 ft². This has been achieved by adding two new-build wings to the front of the building over ground, first and second floors. With each floor now around the size of a football pitch the scheme will deliver the largest floor plates in the Thames Valley.

Marek Sroka, director, Capita ESA, said:

“Our brief to take the building back to frame, increase floor space and deliver a destination building was not one that was without challenges, but we have successfully overcome these to deliver an innovative design that exceeds expectations and that we believe sets the bar for the next phase of developments at Stockley Park.”
