The space requirements for the various users / business units were mapped out on the basis of interviews, once Freestone had drawn up a strategic vision paper along with the company directors. These included particular starting points, such as the desire to share out infrastructure between the business units in the best way possible. The buildings were thoroughly screened (spatially, technically and financially).
Subsequently, the buildings themselves and the collective requirements programme were brought face to face in order that scenarios could then be developed, leading to a preferred scenario following evaluation. The technical buildings were approached from 4 points of view: spatial, technical, financial (including operating costs and valorisation options) and legal.
