Stryker New Medical Technology Facility, Newbury, Berkshire, United Kingdom

ESA gain planning consent for striking new medical technology facility
ESA's design for a new distribution and office HQ facility for Stryker, the US manufacturer of high-tech medical equipment, has achieved planning consent. The 5-acre site is situated opposite Stryker’s existing facility, close to Newbury racecourse and on the mainline railway between London and the South West. The new 10,000 sq m building will house all of Stryker’s UK workforce as well as providing space for logistics, distribution and high-tech storage/assembly and is aiming for a BREEAM rating of “excellent”.

Although the building has been designed for the specific needs of the client, requiring some deep-plan assembly areas, an important aspect of the original brief was to ensure that the base-building could revert back to a regular ‘institutional’ office building that conformed to typical BCO codes of practice.

Externally the proposed building uses a palette of three materials; glass, bronzed metal cladding and cellular translucent polycarbonate panels to the assembly areas.

The consultant team included Cushman Wakefield (Project management), Meinhardt (M+E and Structures), Stuart Pearson (Landscape), Peter Bretts (Highways), WT Partnership (QS) and Barton Wilmore as Planning Consultants.
