Work is progressing on 66 Queen Square in Bristol, a new five-storey commercial office building being constructed by Skanska in one of the city’s prime business locations.
Incorporating Queen Anne House, which was rebuilt as a Grecian-style terrace, the design combines Georgian elegance with a contrasting new adjoining, open plan office space. The project will offer BREEAM ‘Excellent’ and EPC A ratings.
According to the contractor the design, approach and method of construction have been specifically adapted to respect the historic setting, while maximising the functionality and demands of a modern office.
Skanska Design Director, Derren Masters, said: “A feature ‘drum’ at the front of the office building and period style mansard roofs are formed from complicated primary steel arrangements designed by Skanska and being installed by William Haley Engineering.”
