WGI has a broad experience of designing technology facilities, covering a wide range of client groups, building types and processes and, although identified as a separate sector, it also extends into our work in defence, workplace and healthcare.
Our approach is based on the need to understand in detail the process to be contained within a facility. Therefore our design objectives have always been to produce process led buildings in which the technology and personnel can function safely, securely and effectively whilst responding to the external surroundings and giving the facilities a local identity. These objectives include the need to consider the assembly and installation of equipment as part of the design and building process.
Our experience includes research facilities, data centres, mail handling centres, printing works, testing and maintenance facilities, and such are the specific demands of individual projects that it often requires an assimilation of knowledge across a range of building types to embrace the latest technology and create an efficient and successful design.
