AWW was appointed by St Monica Trust to develop up the commercial element of the redevelopment of the former Cadbury’s Chocolate Factory in Keynsham near Bristol.
The design approach sought to retain the existing building whilst refurbishing the internal areas with a new core and 2 storey entrance creating approximately 85,000 sqft of office accommodation over 6 storeys: this includes a new 5th floor extension.
The office environment supports a mixed mode environment with fit-outs expected to adopt exposed services within an open plan arrangement. A doctors’ surgery and small retail unit are provided at ground floor level to support the wider residential development and the adjacent care home.
Mark Alker Stone, AWW Director, says: “The repurposing of this interesting historic building for commercial office use preserves the legacy of the building for the future and offers the opportunity to create an exciting contemporary workplace”.
