BP’s new Upstream Learning Centre, designed by global architecture, urbanism and design practice Broadway Malyan, has started construction in Sunbury, UK. The Centre will provide a 4,000 square metre learning environment for BP’s employees and is to be built by BAM Construct.
The project, located at BP’s International Centre for Business and Technology in Sunbury, follows previous completed office schemes designed by Broadway Malyan for BP in the UK over a 20 year period – including the regeneration of the 45,000 square metre Sunbury campus, a new Link Building on the same site, as well as the fit out of BP’s Stockley Park offices near Heathrow.
The practice’s integrated team comprises a diverse mix of education, workplace, interior, branding and landscape architects and design experts, which is building on the work of masterplanning and town planning colleagues. The scheme draws on expertise from the practice’s offices in Reading, London and Weybridge, UK.
The Learning Centre will include classrooms and informal settings and has been laid out around a large double height collaborative space which is designed to connect into the wider campus and foster open and comfortable interaction and informal learning by BP’s employees.
