Inspire were commissioned by Discovery Properties to complete the Technical Design of a new build 119,000 sqft B&Q warehouse on the site of a former Council Depot. Located adjacent to Barnfield Road, Swindon, this is a prominent site sitting just to the side of the main railway line to London Paddington. The design had to be prominent but respectful of its main road side position, and respect B&Q’s corporate identity. Projecting canopies, high level gloss and smooth cladding provided a distinctive sophisticated design.
