The Gatwick serviced office centre is the 13th winner of the award, given because of the buildings aeronautical history as the first Gatwick Airport passenger terminal building.
Now offering serviced office space, the white circular building dates back to 1936 and was the original HQ of Great British Airways. Flexible office operator Orega re-opened the centre in 2009 in a joint venture with The Bland Group.
Roger Beazley, chairman of the Royal Aeronautical Society Heritage Awards, spoke at the event. Describing the building as ‘tremendous’, Mr Beazley thanked Peter Davison, who organises proposals for the awards, and John King, who issues them.
Chairman of The Bland Group, James Gaggero, also commented: “We’ve made The Beehive relevant for today; people love the charm and character of the building; the beauty of its circular design. What we see now is The Bland Group’s commitment to it.”
The new renovations of The Beehive cost £1.6 million, invested by The Bland Group. As well as high quality serviced offices the centre also offers meeting rooms which attract many companies looking to enjoy the buildings unique history and characteristics. Located just 10 minutes from Gatwick Airport the serviced offices have proved very popular and now enjoy 100% occupancy.
Joint managing director for Orega, Zach Douglas, commented: “It’s a great honour for The Beehive to receive this award in recognition of its major contribution to the aeronautical world. We are proud to be associated with such a wonderful building and delighted that we could give it a new lease of life as a business centre for the 21st century.”
