Medius was constructed in 2007 to a demanding specification and incorporates a number of environmentally friendly features. These include solar glazing to reduce heat loss, motion-activated lighting and a highly efficient air conditioning and air purification system. In addition, during the fit-out of Medius BiP specified environmentally friendly Hydrotaps for the automatic dispensing of hot and cold filtered water, thereby reducing energy costs and the demand for water deliveries.
BiP completed its move to Medius in June 2009 following an extensive fit-out programme which took six months to complete. As a digital media organisation, connectivity is a prime concern for BiP and a significant level of investment was made into the company’s communications and IT infrastructure. Over 16 miles of high-quality data cabling has been installed and our server room has been designed to comply with the highest standards of security. It houses the latest in virtualised server technology and our IT capability is supported by a UPS system and generator capable of running indefinitely.
The inside of Medius has been designed to complement the striking exterior. Large open plan spaces bordered by extensive glazing and high ceilings create a bright and airy working environment. Each floor is equipped with at least one kitchen/diner and various break-out areas are situated throughout the building.
Communication is an essential part of BiP’s philosophy and Medius has been designed to accommodate both formal and informal meetings for all group sizes. Two meeting rooms are set aside specifically for visiting clients and a large, dedicated training room has been provided to enable the delivery of our extensive in-house training schedule.
Medius represents the next, exciting stage in BiP Solutions’ history. Much more than a building, it is a tangible statement of intent for the business and its staff.
