A high quality office development in Bristol by commercial property developer Stoford is a finalist in the British Council for Offices’ (BCO) prestigious annual awards.
The 62,275 sq ft office development, built on behalf of leading healthcare insurance provider Simplyhealth, is vying for the crown in the Corporate Workplace category. Winners will be announced at the BCO awards dinner in Bristol in May.
Stoford completed Simplyhealth House, in Clifton, last year. It houses 402 employees in one of Bristol’s most popular districts. The scheme was developed on a gateway site in a conservation area on Whiteladies Road.
It marked the regeneration of a building that had long been left derelict. The ground floor slab and basement car parking were retained and much of the demolition materials were recycled.
The design minimised energy use and carbon emissions, and also features renewable energy sources such as solar panels.
Stoford director David Brown said the high quality BREEAM Excellent scheme represented a statement building; light, airy and with a clear, open plan working environment for Simplyhealth’s workforce.
“We are delighted to be BCO Awards finalists in the Corporate Worplace category. The development was progressed with great consideration for the surrounding area, but with a clear vision on creating a strikingly attractive workplace with sustainability at its core.”
