Our approach to building design is shaped by a desire to enable
our clients to realise their aspirations.
Whether they are looking to build a new facility or refurbish a
property we adopt a collaborative, inclusive, working style which
allows us to explore their needs and goals, creating a dynamic
vision for their project.
We combine global best practice and multidisciplinary expertise
to help find new approaches to design. This, along with our
passion, creativity and energy, enables us to identify innovative
solutions which address challenges, manage risk, and help clients
to realise opportunities such as cost reduction, greater
flexibility, improved working environments and tenant
As a company we are focused on remaining at the forefront of
building design. We have developed new propositions such as cool
workspace which provide clients with the opportunity to define the
design process to meet their requirements; be that reducing carbon
emissions, improving occupant comfort, providing a bespoke tenant
workspace, or achieving green building certification.
Capita Symonds is also investing in new technologies that are
transforming the design process. We are a market leader in Building
Information Modelling (BIM) and are currently working on the St.
Silas school project which, when completed in spring 2012, will be
the first building in the UK to have been designed and constructed
Capita Symonds is committed to ensuring that its buildings are
able to deliver across the triple bottom line - economic, social
and environmental - and have a positive impact on the end user and
wider community, both now and in to the future.
Some of our key building design projects include:
- St Helens Diagnostic &
Treatment Centre (DTC): completed in 2008, the £100m
St Helens DTC signals the future for a significant proportion of
modern healthcare provision.
- Wales Millennium Centre,
Cardiff: not only is this cultural icon the first
national cultural institution to be built in Wales for over half a
century, it is has played host to royalty, renowned Russian
ballerinas and even provides a backdrop for the BBC’s

the Future (BSF) programme will deliver 26 schools in four phases
over the next four years.

services on the new O2 Arena in Dublin.
- Stryker UK Headquarters,
Newbury: this new building provides office space for
the current and future needs of our medical technology client, and
doubles the size of its all-important logistics facility, while
also creating a building of high quality that visually expresses
the company’s corporate intentions.
