Works consisted of the construction of a single storey retail unit, which was divided into units for Costa Coffee and Subway.
The shell building design offered a carbon neutral usage of the building through a well choreographed installation of passive air systems, underfloor heating, air source heat pumps, photovoltaic’s and rainwater harvesting.
The distinctive curved design was achieved by the use of timber glue-lam beams, a curved roof and timber rain screen cladding. Curtain walling to the remaining elevations ensured that the units were supplied with plenty of daylight.
Construction took place in a busy, operational retail park with a tight site footprint, whilst also incorporating alterations to the car park, landscaping and introduction of additional mains services
