Santander Digital Hub, Milton Keynes

Santander Digital Hub, Milton Keynes

Located in the business district of Central Milton Keynes, the digital hub will replace the existing Santander Grafton Gate office and carpark. The hub is a response to the digitalisation of the banking sector and is part of the bank’s strategy to adapt to changing technology. The 37,000sqm open plan office will bring together Santander’s employees, who are currently spread across four offices – providing them with an enhanced working environment that will help to attract and retain the best talent. 

 A new form of office campus, the Hub is designed to connect the business with the local community, providing a publicly accessible retail, food and beverage space, a community hall and co-working space. Sustainability and staff wellbeing are core objectives for the project. The building is designed to achieve a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating for its environmental sustainability performance. It will improve building regulation requirements by reducing Co2 emissions by a further 20% and is designed to achieve a WELL Gold certification. 

 Richard Hutchinson, Director of LOM architecture and design, said: “Santander’s Digital Hub is at the forefront of workplace design, providing employees with high quality facilities within an environment that supports collaboration and wellbeing. The scheme marks a paradigm shift in how corporate workplaces can operate. This community-centric building is designed to welcome and connect with local people and visitors who will be able to access a range of amenities including retail, cafe, leisure and co-working spaces.”
