Pentland is an international brand management group involved in the sports, outdoor and fashion markets and owns world famous brands such as Speedo, Ellesse, Kickers, Mitre, Berghaus and Red or Dead.
 
The new headquarters is a deliberate departure from the traditional UK office building. Overlooking a lake and conservation area, the Pentland Lakeside HQ is a stylish, contemporary building designed to provide an open, flexible and creative environment in which employees not only work, but also relax, eat, shop, workout and socialise.
 
Winner of the British Council for Offices Award 2003, the building incorporates materials such as naturally occurring brick, slate and timber as well as expressed steel, glass and aluminium. The extensive use of glass allows a high level of natural light deep into the building and a facetted, glazed wall, featuring Kawneer’s 1202 zone drained curtain walling, provides uninterrupted views over the lake from the reception and restaurant.
