COLWYN BAY OFFICES
NEW BUILD OFFICE
Set high on the hillside, above Eirias Park, the site for this new office building was situated between the existing two and three storey offices: Plas Eirias and Heritage Gate and offers great views over Colwyn Bay.
The new three storey building provides 20,000sqft of office accommodation split into two ‘bays’ of 10,000sqft. These ‘bays’ are served by separate entrances and circulation areas within a common central atrium space, and passenger lifts serve the upper floors.
The materials reflect the straightforward nature of the building with red multi-facing brickwork, glazed frames, grey powder coated aluminium curtain walling and a slate roof. The glazing pattern reflects the internal functions of the offices; individual or open plan and the roof of the atrium introduces top light into the space via an array of glazing. The building is designed to maximise natural light and ventilation and the generous overhangs on the roof allows solar shading to the top floor windows. An 80-space car park was also included, and the site finished with new soft landscaping.
As the building was procured by design and build, TNW were initially appointed by the client and then were novated to the contractor.
