We are delighted to announce that our new home has been shortlisted for a national property award.
Our new headquarters, in Chepstow, Monmouthshire, was one of seven new developments selected to compete in the final round of Workplace Design of the Year category at this year’s Insider Wales Property Awards. The awards ceremony takes place on Thursday 28 June at Cardiff City Hall.
Our 350,00ft2 workplace was designed by awards finalist Rio Architects and completed in July 2017, becoming part of the largest single investment in a manufacturing facility in Wales. The move was part of our commitment to boost production capacity, support innovations in product design, showcase products, and provide warehousing and office space. The facility was nominated for its modern, open and contemporary environment, providing high levels of natural light, ventilation and excellent external views.
AluK Managing Director, Russell Yates said he was delighted with the recognition the company headquarters has attracted since opening.
“Our new home has become a major talking point of many of our clients, but for it to be nominated for this award is truly wonderful. We have invested heavily in our operations to create a working environment that inspires and feels welcoming to both staff and customers. We are thrilled with the final result. Rio Architects did a fantastic job and we wish them the best of luck with the award. It is certainly deserved.”
The awards category, which will debut this year, and has been added to celebrate the growing number of innovative, high-quality office, and workplace fit-outs and refurbishments in Wales. Lee Protheroe, Senior Associate at Rio Architects, said:
“It is a real honour to have our work recognised on the national stage. We worked closely with AluK to realise their vision without comprise. It would be an amazing achievement to win such a prestigious award, but we would also like to wish all the finalists the very best of luck.”
From all of the team at AluK, we'd like to wish Rio Architects and all the finalists, the very best at the Awards!
