Project spotlight in Cambridge

GTA recently completed the architectural transformation of PA’s Global Innovation and Technology Centre (GITC), in Cambridge, UK. Originally designed by architects Richard Rogers and Renzo Piano in 1975, the 10,000-square-meter facility is a signature building with inside-out services and engineering.

PA Consulting first appointed an architect for feasibility design of the new entrance. GTA took the project reins thereafter with an expanded scope. GTA refined options that were buildable, gained planning permission and a programme strategy allowing PA to remain in occupation throughout the whole construction period.
