DOMINO’S Pizza’s new headquarters building in Milton Keynes has won a major regional award.

Domino’s base in West Ashland won the British Council (BCO) for Offices award for projects up to 2,000-sq-m in the South West, Thames Valley and South Wales.

The BCO Awards recognise excellence in office space.

Designed by q2 Architects, Domino’s state of the art head office building was completed at the end of 2011.

The building has three main floors with a lower ground floor main entrance, reception area, penthouse boardroom and a test kitchen where new products are created for Domino’s menu.

Built to BRE Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) standards, the office has been given a rating of excellent. The BREEAM environmental assessment aims to minimise environmental impact by ensuring sustainable best practices are in place, helping to lower costs.

The BCO judging panel commented on Domino’s head office building: “This was a very well executed and considered project with superb attention to detail and quality of finish. The efficient footprint works well, with cellular spaces on the ground floor and predominantly open plan on the upper levels. The design team clearly enjoyed working alongside the client and included a look-out tower at the top of the building, used as a boardroom.”

Adam Batty, company secretary at Domino’s Pizza, said: “The award is testament to our project team who did an outstanding job in making it all happen. We have a fantastic team here in Milton Keynes and it is an honour for us to work in award winning building too.”

All the regional winners will compete in the national BCO Awards in October.
