The Vision

The refurbishment of an existing 1970s office building has unlocked the extensive development potential, increased the net lettable area and has created a top quality Grade A office space to maximise the investment value for West Midland Pension Fund. The development has achieved high environmental standards with BREEAM Very Good, EPC rating A and roof level photovoltaic panels.

Our Role

We worked with the Investment Manager, CBRE Global Investors, from an early stage to develop the brief for the project back in 2011. The construction contract was tendered under an OJEU Compliant Framework back in 2015 and the building was delivered in Summer 2017. The building has achieved an improved energy performance from new lifts, windows, mechanical & electrical services and structural alterations, which includes a new fully glazed 4th floor extension and reception, increasing the buildings NIA by over 4,000 sq ft.

Special Mention

A non-material amendment was approved by Bath and North East Somerset Council Planning Department in December 2015 to add a photovoltaic panel array at roof level. This has made the building one of a handful of properties with photovoltaic panels within this UNESCO World Heritage Site.
