Phase two of Paradise is underway as One Centenary Way starts on site.
One Centenary Way incorporates three-metre wide horizontal windows, encased within an exoskeleton structural steel façade. The innovative, structural-led design is a response to the complex site location above the A38 Queensway tunnels which will remain open throughout the construction process.
When completed the building will complete the missing edge to the new Centenary Square and has been a structural design challenge resolved with a series of steel Vierendeel trusses – typically used on bridges, giving it a visually distinct facade with a strong, robust presence.
One Centenary Way challenges workspace norms and provides a new modern environment to attract the best in the city. Wellness and wellbeing are central to the design with shared communal spaces, south-facing roof garden, public and private cycle hubs.
One Centenary Way follows on from the first phase of Paradise which includes One Chamberlain Square and Two Chamberlain Square. These buildings, along with newly enhanced public realm, will complete this winter.
