Restaurant Design Associates designed and installed state of the art catering facilities at the new HSBC UK headquarters in Birmingham.
Part of the new Arena Central development in the heart of Birmingham, the 210,000-sq. ft., 10 storey HSBC head office will be the first in Birmingham to be constructed to LEED (Leadership in Environmental and Energy Design) Gold accreditation.
The team worked with the contract caterers, HSBC and project management company Mace to develop the catering design before successfully securing the fit-out contract.
RDA’s team of experts created :
- a new main restaurant and kitchen
- two coffee bars
- hospitality kitchens
- drinks stations
- external barbeque stations.
- Each area has been designed to provide a destination outlet, providing a carefully integrated catering option throughout the new building.
The design is fresh, modern and quirky. There’s a strong use of plants throughout with vibrant colours, geometrical fabrics and tiles, multi-functional seating areas and eating spaces.
Alex Bradley, Director at RDA said: “It’s been a pleasure to work on such a high-profile project.Our talented team of designers, QS and project managers have put a lot of work into this challenging project, which is clear to see from the results. This has become one of Birmingham’s most widely recognised buildings and we are delighted with the beautiful catering spaces we have created for HSBC employees to enjoy.”
