'Reimagined' State-of-the-Art Office Hub Is New Kid on the 'Blok' in Bristol Business Community

‘Reimagined’ State-of-the-Art Office Hub Is New Kid on the ‘Blok’ in Bristol Business Community

A contemporary workspace in the heart of Bristol’s bustling commercial district will officially launch this week following a £12m major refurbishment. Set in Bristol’s city centre, BLOK can boast an unrivalled location with excellent transport networks via road, rail, and an international airport. Temple Meads Train Station is just an eight-minute walk away. Already 60% let prior to practical completion and boasting a series of new tenants, including Coreus Projects, 5 Values Consulting, RWK Goodman and Nathaniel Lichfield Partners, the completed BLOK building will serve as a welcome addition to the city’s thriving business sector.   Offering 70,000 sq ft of modern workspace and a further 11,000 sq ft of occupier welfare and amenity space including communal lounge, meeting rooms, presentation spaces, independent coffee shop, courtyard garden, roof terrace and private gym. Having purchased the tired 1980s-built property in 2021, real estate transformation specialists Boultbee Brooks decided against demolition and instead employed Mutiny Architecture & Design to come up with plans which could breathe new life into the existing structure. The process of ‘reimagining instead of rebuilding’ prioritises sustainability and occupier experience reflected in the extensive building certification including high BREEAM, EPC, Fitwell, Activescore, and Wiredscore ratings. Boultbee Brooks Managing Director, James Whitcher, comments “In line with our core ethos of ‘Repurpose, not Rebuild’, we’re passionate about reviving older buildings and giving them a new lease of life, with the aim of keeping our carbon footprint as low as possible. “From the outset we committed to retaining the existing façade, instead prioritising expenditure in areas of the scheme that would deliver the highest level of day-to-day benefit for the occupiers using it, resulting in one of the most amenity rich workspaces in Bristol at a very competitive price point. “We look forward to announcing and welcoming new businesses to Blok over the summer!” Further space is available on flexible terms and layouts from 1,000 sq ft up to 12,000 sq ft.

Leading the way: Princes Dock commercial office buildings first to connect to Liverpool’s low carbon district heat network

Leading the way: Princes Dock commercial office buildings first to connect to Liverpool’s low carbon district heat network

Three Net Zero office buildings at Princes Dock, Liverpool Waters, will become the first commercial office buildings in Liverpool to connect their heating and hot water supply to the new Mersey Heat network. The multi-million-pound energy centre, currently under construction and set to complete in the autumn, will have the capacity to provide low carbon heat and hot water, through the Mersey Heat network, to thousands of homes and businesses around the city, reducing energy costs and their carbon footprint. Businesses based at No. 8, No. 10, and No. 12 Princes Dock, which sit within Peel Waters’ growing Liverpool Waters district, have already been verified as Net Zero for three years running. The popular waterside office space will now also benefit from locally generated heat, through the district heat network and energy centre. This will make it the largest cluster of offices in Liverpool to provide this opportunity to its tenants. The energy centre, which will be home to one of the UK’s largest water source heat pumps, will take heat from the water in the nearby Leeds/Liverpool Canal and use it to heat surrounding homes and businesses via a 6km district heating network. Last year, renewable energy company, Vital Energi was appointed by Peel NRE to design and build the energy centre off Great Howard Street, which is expected to be complete by September 2024. Led by Peel NRE’s district heat network specialist, Ener-Vate, the Mersey Heat network is set to become a major part of Liverpool’s low carbon energy infrastructure. The Mersey Heat network will reduce Liverpool’s reliance on fossil fuels and save 2,000 tonnes of carbon emissions every year – the equivalent of taking 1,000 cars off the roads. The infrastructure will provide low carbon heat and hot water to thousands of homes and commercial space within Liverpool Waters as well as sustainably futureproofing future developments planned for the growing mixed-use district, as well as wider domestic and commercial buildings across Liverpool. This initial phase of the project could supply 20GWh of heat every year with planning permission in place to expand the project to supply around 45GWh (the equivalent of supplying 17,000 new homes with heating and hot water). Liza Marco, Senior Asset Manager at Liverpool Waters, said: “With construction of the new energy centre underway, it’s fantastic that we are now securing connections to the network from offices at Princes Dock. This is a highly desirable location for businesses, with a beautiful waterfront setting and access to range of amenities but, at Liverpool Waters, we are also striving for excellence in sustainability and climate resilience. This is also a big priority for our tenants and our growing community, and so it is vital that we connect to this ambitious project right across the Liverpool Waters site to ensure the sustainable regeneration of Liverpool’s northern docklands.” Andrew Wightman, Pre-Construction Director at Vital Energi said: “It’s fantastic to have a number of buildings at Princes Dock signed up to connect to the Mersey Heat network. Securing early adopters to the scheme further fortifies the need for heat networks across cities like Liverpool, where a range of buildings are seeking to contribute to the UK’s wider net zero journey and invest in their own sustainable heat and hot water infrastructure. Vital Energi are delighted to be a part of the Mersey Heat network, developing and delivering a futureproofed and low carbon heat network.” Liverpool Waters is part of Peel Waters, a UK wide portfolio of vibrant and innovative, waterfront developments, delivering large-scale, sustainable regeneration projects, creating jobs, economic growth, new homes and new public realm across the country.

The proposals will be located on the final remaining plot of the former Doncaster Monk Bridge works off Whitehall Road, in the established Leeds West End Business District. Developed by BAM, Latitude Yellow will provide over 200,000 sqft of Grade A commercial office space. Latitude Yellow has been meticulously designed to create the next generation of high-quality, sustainable office space. With a vision to be the most sustainable new workspace in Leeds, the development will achieve Net-Zero status from day one, totally eliminating the need for fossil fuels throughout the lifetime of the building and relying exclusively on renewable energy sources. The development will target BREEAM Outstanding and a Nabers rating of 5.5. The design promotes sustainable and active travel, with minimal on-site car parking, premium changing facilities and secure cycle storage areas. The development has been designed to offer exceptional amenities and access to outdoor space, with the inclusion of a gym, ground floor café, event space, and roof garden. Biodiversity-friendly features include green walls throughout the development and a new public realm. Over 25% of the budget for Latitude Yellow has been allocated to local social value initiatives, so the development will directly benefit the local community. The decision to approve the application was taken by the City Plans Panel on 11 April 2024. Cllr James Lewis, Leader of Leeds City Council, said: “The development – which has now seen its planning application approved – will provide much needed, modern office space on brownfield land in a key location for the city centre. It’s encouraging the new building will be Net Zero, setting an example for future office developments on the road to a low carbon future. We welcome the steps they’re taking to ensure all energy and electricity used by the site will be sourced exclusively from renewable energy, as well as the commitment to sustainable construction. “We look forward to seeing the building progress and further improving this part of the city centre.” Managing Director of BAM Properties, Euan Miller, said: “We’re delighted that our application has been approved by Leeds’ City Plans Panel. Sustainability is at the heart of Latitude Yellow and our proposals have had a really positive response from both the local community and senior stakeholders in Leeds. “In particular, we’re glad to see the City Plans Panel’s support for the promotion of sustainable city centre travel by limiting the amount of car parking spaces. We’re now aiming to begin work on site later this year.” Building, Design & Construction Magazine | The Choice of Industry Professionals
