Congratulations to our client Candour on celebrating a construction milestone for Welcome Building® in Bristol. Topping Out ceremonies are always special and this one was certainly no exception.
The building will have a unique street on the ground floor that will host events, an open kitchen, interactive art and a collaborative business community. It will also host the largest available floor-plates in the city. 207,000 sq ft of voluminous and open reconfigurable space to accommodate the changing patterns of working life – be that group collaboration or places for individual focus.
The building will be an all-electric workspace, including PV cells on the roof and targeting Net Zero Carbon in operation, and it will set new standards for occupier wellbeing as it will be the first Bristol office building to target Well Platinum Certification, alongside BREEAM Outstanding and Five at Heart Platinum, with consideration given to everything from biodiversity to the enhanced end of trip facilities for cyclists, runners, and in-house gym users.
The building is also connected to the Bristol Heat Network, from which it will extract all of its heat load. This naturally sourced and low carbon heat is procured from the Castle Park energy centre at a lower capital and operational cost, which will also provide greater security for tenants against fluctuating energy tariffs, and means that there will be no polluting combustion whatsoever on site.
We are looking forward to seeing the next phases of build bringing our project to life.
