This month’s cover story is the Wirral Growth scheme, which will transform Birkenhead town centre over the next 15 years. The initial phase consists of two BREEAM ‘Excellent’ five-storey office blocks.
Another commercial scheme is underway in Salford, where the New Bailey development’s latest project is Eden, a 12-storey office block. Sustainability is at the heart of the project’s design and the structure will be adorned with a full-height living wall.
Completing our trio of commercial scheme articles is the EQ project in Bristol, which aims to be one of the city’s first new-build offices to commit to target carbon net-zero in operation.
Located next to east London’s historic Spitalfields Market, a new retail building, with a fully-exposed steel frame is under construction. Designed by Foster + Partners, the architecturally-driven structure is said to be in-keeping with the area’s heritage.
Incorporating a series of bespoke steel modules, a steel-framed solution has provided GlaxoSmithKline with the required speed of construction, as well as the required open-plan floorplates for its new manufacturing facility in Ware.
