Handrail Design are proud to have undertaken a work package for British Airways in excess of £1M and also to have won an award for our outstanding contribution to this landmark project.

BA's Waterside corporate headquarters comprises six limestone clad four storey horseshoe shaped buildings which all back onto an internal 'street' that runs inside an atrium. The street has bridges crossing overhead on varying levels linking the individual buildings and overlooked by balconies which lead off the bridges. The street houses a health centre, hairdressing and beauty salon, travel centre, Waitrose supermarket, bank, restaurants, cafés and a 400-seater auditorium.
