Design challenge:
JM is looking to build a Customer Innovation Centre (CIC) that inspires and engages customers and future partners. The centre will showcase how JM applies cutting edge science to create innovative, sustainable solutions to its customers’ complex problems. The preferred site for this new centre is at JM’s Sonning Common facility, near Reading, which is the base of its corporate science and technology centre. It is expected that the building will be an innovative and flexible space where individual visitors and small or large groups can be accommodated in an integrated experience. The site is located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and as such will need careful design and presentation for planning.
