Central Square was the UK National Winner in the 2001 BCO Awards for the Best Refurbished Workspace. Judged to be:
"... an outstanding example of regeneration in its purest form because it has attracted grade A tenants to a former industrial building by creating a delightful working environment. This has been achieved through clever design, the imaginative selection of materials, and the vision of a thoughtful developer – all within the cost constraints set by targeting an economic rent. The Services strategy is of a particular merit. This is based on displacement ventilation and makes excellent use of the disproportionate storey height and the thermal mass of the existing structure. The building has an ‘Excellent’ BREEAM rating.”
