Design for Sustainability
Our design proposed a 'low energy' sustainable strategy with an open internal environment to encourage communication and a welcoming environment for visitors and public users of the building alike. The building has naturally-ventilated, open plan offices on 15m deep floorplates, set around an open street that acts as a stack to enhance the ventilation strategy.?
Limited cellular space is located at the ends of the office floorplates. SCDC had a clearly defined brief which necessitated a demanding design and construction programme. The building also had to achieve a BREEAM Excellent rating and contractually-binding internal climate conditions.
