The Fairfax, Bristol

95,367 sqft workplace redevelopment in central Bristol

The Fairfax in Bristol involves the refurbishment of a 1960’s era 14-storey office building that is split into a 4-floor podium with an 11-storey tower.

The proposal will regenerate a significant commercial landmark to compliment the rising demand of modern tenants. The podium will be revitalized by relocating the entrance, maximizing its visibility with a new double height reception area and a unique clubroom with a café and meeting rooms. The façade will be replaced with new floor to ceiling glazing and metal / mesh panels, providing a sleek modern aesthetic and maximizing the active frontage to all parts of the building.

The tower will have a lighter touch applied, but one that reconnects it to the podium ensuring a modern design consistency. The windows will be replaced, and the façade panels refurbished, with internal redecoration to incorporate exposed services and new WC’s and lift lobbies.

Retail provision is retained on the ground floor, with tenant car parking and secure cycle parking alongside high quality shower, locker and changing facilities.
