AWW is working with Royal London Asset Management (RLAM) to develop the first phase of their 36,500sqft commercial office space at Glassfields.
This brownfield site, which included a former 1970s office building and is within the Enterprise Zone, is being developed to provide flexible office space organised into three separate buildings totalling 90,000sqft of net space. A reserved matters planning application for this first phase has been registered with Bristol City Council following approval of an outline masterplan in April this year.
The buildings within this first phase of Glassfields have been designed to reflect the latest in contemporary architecture whilst combining the essence of Bristol’s historical harbourside architecture and incorporates a mix of naturally ventilated and mixed mode systems to create a highly energy efficient design. The buildings are targeting BREEAM Excellent accreditation along with the highest levels of EPC rating embracing industry best practice energy efficiency measures and sustainable technology.
Royal London Asset Management, as landowners of a major site within the city centre, is keen to contribute to the economic, social and environmental quality of the area. The new development will increase employment opportunities within Bristol central area and sets a marker by RLAM to create innovative and flexible office space within Bristol’s enterprise zone. The site is less than five minutes’ walk from the Bristol Temple Meads mainline railway station, five minutes from the Cabot Circus shopping centre and is on a primary pedestrian route between the railway station and the Old Market bus hub.
The project is currently registered with Bristol City Council Planning Department.
