The Genesis Energy building transformed a former supermarket into 7,000m2 of office space for Genesis Energy and Civil defence. The challenges were repurposing the shell of the former supermarket for covered carparking and open plan mezzanine offices and linking it into the new civil defence and control design. As the building is intended to be used as a post-disaster facility, care and consideration ensured that the structure and services will continue to operate following an unforeseeable event. Natural light enters the offices via open light wells in the centre of the former supermarket roof. BCD Group provided planning, geotechnical, civil, and structural services for the multi-award winning development.
