The work place, past and present: Centre Point to White Collar Factory

Part of The Concrete Centre's 70 years of Concrete Quarterly exhibition programme, this evening lecture will be focusing on two iconic and ground breaking London developments using concrete: Centre Point, and the White Collar Factory.

Presentation details:

Centre Point, London

Project presented by Gavin Miller, Partner at Rick Mather Architects and Tim Bowder-Ridger, CEO | Senior Partner at Conran and Partners.

Completed in 1966 and the first skyscraper in London, Centre Point is still ranked 27th tallest building in London with an impressive height of 117m (385 ft). 

Rick Mather Architects will present a preview of the remodelling and refurbishment of Centre Point tower, which has given this concrete icon a new lease of life.

White Collar Factory, London

Project presented by Stephen Taylor, associate director at  AHMM Architects and Rob Partridge, director at AKTII and Michael Stych, director | building engineering at Arup. 


With the aim of revolutionising urban work places, the White Collar Factory represents a sustainable and people-centred design philosophy, challenging the notion that excessive and expensive climate control systems are the only solution. 

AHMM architects and AKTII will present the design and collaboration behind the newly completed White Collar Factory office development at City Road – a new concept in work place environment featuring exposed concrete, core cooling and smart technology.
