Paul Owen Associations acted as the structural engineers on this significant upgrade of the existing head office of Shire pharmaceuticals, which all needed to be completed within a live office environment.

This involved the construction of a new glazed front entrance and the remodelling of the existing external facade.  The internal re-fit  included the provision of updating the existing workspaces and office area, alteration of the existing staircases and the provision of a new restaurant and external dinning area.
