Recognised for their fine office buildings, Derwent commissioned ZZA to undertake Pre-evaluations of major projects from the perspectives of future users.

Working from design information, we evaluated White Collar Factory in Shoreditch – designed by AHMM, and 80 Charlotte Street in Fitzrovia – designed by Make. Both are block-wide mixed use schemes, integrating legacy elements with a majority of new build.

We also pre-evaluated the 17-storey Brunel Building, designed by Fletcher Priest Architects, on the Grand Union Canal, facing Paddington Station.

ZZA appraised each scheme via a suite of bespoke questions that we formulated to evaluate anticipated experience of the schemes’ office space, retail facilities, residential units, open space and other amenities. We undertook this through the respective lenses of diverse future users – including visitors, reporting back on features to celebrate in marketing and potential aspects to flex.
