WWF, The Living Planet Centre

Project Overview

DES has completed the electrical installation on the World Wildlife Fund’s new £15 million Headquarters in Woking.

The Living Planet Centre includes a public visitor centre, auditorium and education suite, so that WWF are able to welcome visitors – local residents, school groups, MPs and business leaders – to explore, understand and engage with its global environmental work.

Designed by Hopkins Architects using state-of-the-art sustainable building techniques, the Living Planet Centre sits on a raised podium over the ground-level car park in Brewery Road, which was re-opened to the public in October 2013.
