Defra, York

York, Yorkshire

Sector: Interiors, Office

Appointed by DEFRA, Gibberd sought to improve business effectiveness and facilitate modern working practice by undertaking an internal refurbishment and space planning of two office buildings - Foss house and Mallard house - at the DEFRA Kings Pool complex in York. The phased redevelopment took place over a two year period and was implemented to minimise the divisional moves of some 700 staff within the building during the refurbishment works. Both were awarded as 'Excellent' rating by BREEAM.
