ProCon Leicestershire Awards 2018

Project Detail

Steris, Watermead, Leicester

Large Non-Residential Scheme of the Year Award 2018 Finalist

The project is a purpose-built base for Albert Browne, a world leader in decontamination and sterilization monitoring systems. All of its products are designed and manufactured in, and distributed from, Leicester.

The 5,900 square metre building includes a warehouse, factory and offices at the Watermead Business Park.

The facility showcases Albert Browne’s product quality and high level of quality assurance in its production methods.

Project Overview

The development enabled the bringing together of staff and processes from two sites whilst creating space for any potential future expansion of Albert Browne, a subsidiary of the US-based STERIS Corporation.

The facility uses large areas of glazing and a simple neutral colour palette. Three interlocking forms with asymmetric curved roofs contain the main production and storage building whilst a lower block contains the office and R&D functions.

A change in colour on each block helps to break down the overall mass, forming an animated ‘gateway’ into the city and responding to glimpsed views from the A607. The entrances are emphasised by a two-storey blue framed glazed structure containing reception and meeting rooms.
