The Solution Centre at Atlantic Quay, Glasgow, helps people to find exciting and practical ideas to solve their business-focused problems. Stephen George & Partners was delighted to be named architect for this project on behalf of the Department of Work and Pensions. Our designs are part of a drive to inspire creativity and innovation across The Pension Service, the Department for Work and Pensions and, increasingly, across government.
Five rooms were designed to deal with specific parts of the creative problem-solving process. There is also an open and flexible working environment with 55 work stations that allow people to experiment with alternative IT solutions.
The facility features demonstration rooms, learning and meeting rooms, conference area and state-of-the-art audio visual facilities.
The design of the building reflected the high technology functions carried out inside.
The project was taken from receipt of brief to full operation in seven months, requiring extraordinary levels of commitment and participation from the whole design and construction team.
