Project Information

The three-storey office accommodation has been designed to be environmentally friendly and achieved the BREEAM rating of “Excellent”. The state-of-the-art design, with its dynamic interiors was planned with communal, outward looking spaces which serve as both circulation and breakout areas, with the added value of being available for local community use. This flexible arrangement however neither disrupts nor compromises the efficient open plan offices. Specifications were developed from the earliest stage to ensure cost verification and value for money throughout the design stages. Design quality for the project takes account of functionality, appropriate build quality and impact on the environment in-line with the briefing requirements.
