Oxygen House, the new headquarter building of statistical sports research consultancy ATASS at Exeter Business Park, has been named Building of the Year at the prestigious Michelmores/Western Morning News Commercial Property Awards against fierce competition. Hosted by Michael Portillo at Exeter University’s Great Hall, the event was attended by the South West’s leading property personnel.
The vision of ATASS’s founder, Dr Mark Dixon, of a green building with superb staff facilities was brought to fruition by developer Summerfield led by Paul Bennett as Project Manager and a team of forward-thinking designers and contractors.
Commended by the judges as ‘‘truly outstanding’’, Oxygen House provides a contemporary and healthy environment which, award judges said, has ‘‘raised the bar’’ in terms of office and environmental standards.
Atass was commended on its consideration of both the well being of its staff and that of the wider community.
Employees have the benefit of a terrific and healthy working environment, extensive views, a running track, multi-sports pitch, catering kitchen, canteen, recreation room and well equipped gym.
