Based in the Suffolk coastal town of Lowestoft since 1902, the UK marine science agency Cefas (The Centre for Environment, Fisheries, and Aquaculture Science) has constructed a new contemporary headquarters building.

The steel-framed landmark HQ, which features a green roof with in-built photovoltaics, forms a central element of a much larger scheme that also includes the phased floor-by-floor refurbishment of an existing 1980s laboratory building.

All of the internal columns and beams have been left exposed, while the underside of the metal decking flooring is also visible. It’s very much a function over form design, but it does give the entire building the desired modern industrial feel.
