It’s the latest low carbon milestone for the firm which built the UK’s largest non-residential Passivhaus facility, University of Leicester’s Centre for Medicine, and the BREEAM Excellent One Central Square,office development in Cardiff.
Client Cubex’s Aurora office project will be built at its Finzels Reach development, a £250m mixed-use regeneration scheme in central Bristol close to Temple Meads railway station.
Willmott Dixon will build the 95,000 sq ft Grade A office on the Floating Harbour for £17.5m.
Gavin Bridge, Director, Cubex Land: “I’m delighted that with our solid financial backing we are pressing ahead with this speculative development encouraged by the fact that Bristol has a shortage of Grade A office space which has already resulted in rental growth.”
Neal Stephens, managing director of Willmott Dixon in Bristol was working with architect The Bush Consultancy, Dickson Powell Partnership as quantity surveyors and project managers plus Hydrock Consultants, structural and building performance engineers.
The building will complete to shell, core and CAT A stage by the end of 2017.
