The Brief

QinetiQ test and integrate complex naval equipment for the MoD. We were appointed to help them rationalise their building stock and capabilities and to provide a new testing facility.   

Concept

Our intent was to create a word leading testing facility to consolidate QinetiQ’s and the Solent’s position within the sector. Located in a prominent position overlooking Portsmouth we have anchored the building form to the existing hill and landscape. Metal and glass volumes highlight our client’s values: pragmatism and efficiency.

Features

Our building design integrates highly engineered areas, demanding telecommunication routes and storage facilities, with commercial office space and VIP areas that represent QinetiQ at the highest level. Our simple yet attractive design for the BREEAM Excellent scheme has two level independent access.
