HQube wins RICS Design Award

The HQube development, which features 12 units for local businesses in shipping containers, was inspired by the DesBox scheme in East Richardson Street.

So far, seven of the units have been filled and discussions are ongoing with occupiers for the remaining units.

Despite the negativity at the time, RICS Awards judges said the design of the units was “innovative” and selected the site as its 2022 South East winner in the public sector project section.

They said: “HQube is an innovative development utilising repurposed shipping containers with a vision to encourage local business growth and animation to an area of High Wycombe that was formally a yard laid to concrete for many years.

This has been an exciting project for us to be involved in, working alongside the team at Buckinghamshire Council and we are looking forward to handing these units over to our Property Management Department after a successful completion.
