Summer 2019

Project will be Spanish bank’s tech hub

Osborne+Co has the all-clear for a £150m UK technology hub for banking giant Santander.

Osborne+Co recruited McNamara in 2017 and appointed them for the job to create a workspace for around 5,000 people last September. The Shard builder Flan McNamara joined after eight years working for developer Sellar.

Designed by LOM, the Milton Keynes facility is due to open in 2022, and the hub will replace the Spanish bank’s existing Grafton Gate office in Milton Keynes.

The building will bring together Santander’s employees, who are currently spread across four offices in the UK and will also include retail, a community hall, auditorium and co-working space.

It will also feature a restaurant and bar area with a roof terrace on the top floor.

The wider project team includes engineer WSP and Turner & Townsend as project and cost managers.

Osborne+Co is also behind Santander’s new contact centre and operations hub in Bootle, near Liverpool, after being chosen as the bank’s development partner for the £75m project.
