The Porter Building is a five storey, 100,000ft² new build development in Slough.
Our client, Landid, wanted to offer possible tenants maximum potential to adapt and modify the building to their future needs, whilst pro-actively managing the economics of a speculative office development in Slough.
To achieve this, the Porter Building design delivers future flexibility and multi-occupancy through its conception and design. A flexible grid and an economic structural solution were important. In the earliest design stages, our structural engineers optioneered multiple solutions to work within the desired 9m grid, creating quick sketch options to help the developer compare initial outlay cost, with lettable area, projected income and project programme.
