Wakefield Old Textile Mill gets Revamp to Become Biggest Creative Hub Outside London

Wakefield Old Textile Mill gets Revamp to Become Biggest Creative Hub Outside London

Wakefield-based Henley Group restores derelict Grade II listed mill set to become the largest creative hub outside of London. Yorkshire-based construction company, Henley Stone Restoration & Remedials Ltd, part of the Henley Group, is restoring the traditional brickwork on a 19th century Grade II listed building complex, Rutland Mills, in Wakefield. The restoration and repair project will honour the 200-year-old architecture to transform the derelict building into a world class creative hub, Tileyard North. Once a thriving textile mill adjacent to the contemporary Hepworth Gallery at the edge of the river Calder, the 9,300sqm historical industrial complex has been derelict for 20 years and many of the spaces have significantly deteriorated. Award-winning restoration and remedial expert, Henley Stone Restoration & Remedials Ltd, has been appointed to oversee the restoration required to return the Grade II listed building to its former glory, honouring its original fabric and the region’s industrial heritage. The extensive work includes complete façade restoration, structural alterations and strengthening, as well as repairs to the existing building. Alongside Furness Brick & Tile Co Ltd and HSRR, Henley Group has identified replacement brick and mortar samples that match sensitively to the existing 19th century brickwork. Tom Cardoe, Head of Restoration at Henley Group, commented: “We’re proud to bring decades of restoration and remedial expertise to the regeneration of Rutland Mill, a landmark project which will significantly enhance the local economy – it will be The Battersea Power Station of the North”. “By carefully repairing and restoring the building’s fabric, we will bring this historical site back to its former glory and breath life back to this once forgotten part of Wakefield. Regeneration projects bring immediate benefits to the local area and these are the kind of projects we pride ourselves on.” Led by developers City & Principal, Stainforth Construction, architects Hawkins Brown and project manager, Opera, the site will become a thriving cultural hub with facilities for music and digital studios, start-ups, creatives, and the local community. The scheme will also create educational space, a hotel, food and drink and facilities complementary to the Hepworth Gallery. Adam Standeven, Contracts Manager at Stainforth Construction, said: ‘It’s great to work in collaboration with a local Wakefield Restoration company, especially one that always provides a professional service, with a team who have an incredibly positive attitude towards delivering top quality work on this heritage project.” Rutland Mills is the final stage in completing a ten-acre regeneration plan that is revamping Wakefield’s riverside. The wider plan converts the space into a mixed-use, inclusive, creative, and cultural cluster with world-class facilities. The first phase of works, comprising of four buildings across 60,000sqft, for several uses including a work and education space, event space, bistro café and gin bar, and a central courtyard, was completed in December 2022. The new central courtyard allows for breakout activity at the ground floor, as well as providing the opportunity for large scale events, such as music and food and drink festivals. The second will be completed phase by the final quarter in 2024.

Pentre Awel Project takes shape with First Steel Structure

Bouygues UK and Carmarthenshire County Council have revealed the first steel structure for the landmark Pentre Awel project. This is the first of five buildings and will house education and business development. Leaders from Carmarthenshire County Council joined representatives from Bouygues UK and local contractors Shufflebottom and Dyfed Steels to view the steel structure, which marks a significant milestone in the project. The multi-million pound development is being delivered by Carmarthenshire County Council and is the largest regeneration scheme in south west Wales. It will bring together life science and business innovation, community healthcare and modern leisure facilities at the 83-acre Delta Lakes site on the Llanelli coastline. It is part-funded by the Swansea Bay City Deal (£40million) and is the largest regeneration scheme in south west Wales. Lead contractor Bouygues UK is committed to using local subcontractors as part of its commitment to provide employment, training and skills opportunities to local people and underrepresented groups. Dyfed Steels is providing the reinforcement bar for the project’s foundations which has 98% recycled content, and Shufflebottom is providing the structural steel for the building, which has 80% recycled content. With a commitment to the heritage of the area, the steel frame also provides the historical link to the previous industrial buildings that were located on the site.

Peter Sharpe, Bouygues UK’s Pentre Awel Project Director, said the steel structure marks a significant part of the project. He said: “This is a major construction milestone at Pentre Awel and an exciting one as we can really start to see the structure taking shape providing the scale of the project. Steel framing has a proven track record of providing sustainable benefits and it also offers significant cost benefits compared to alternative materials. For us it’s very important that we have as many local sub-contractors as possible working with us on this project and it’s great to welcome our guests from local companies Shufflebottom and Dyfed Steels to see the progress that is being made here.” Cllr. Darren Price, Leader of Carmarthenshire County Council: “Whilst works have been progressing at pace for many months, this milestone represents the start of aboveground works.

Largest low-carbon building in France clad in charred Accoya wood

Largest low-carbon building in France clad in charred Accoya wood

An urban renewal project in the Parisian suburb of Clichy-La-Garenne will become the largest low-carbon building in France. The bustling 47,000m2 urban campus, known as BLACK, is set to provide users with a true ‘workplace of tomorrow’ by creating a sustainable and inspiring modern workspace within commutable distance from La Défense, Paris- the busiest business district in Europe. BLACK is a unique project which has been designed with sustainability at its core. Situated right beside Parc des Impressionnistes, the project’s ethical design blends nature’s elements with unique architecture to create a space that sits in harmony with its surroundings. The distinctive timber cladding has undergone the Japanese charring technique of Shou Sugi Ban. This ancient art involves burning the wood to create a decorative and protective layer of charcoal on its surface. By opting for a façade using Accoya timber that has been treated using this process, the architect saved 1,000 tonnes of CO2 without compromising on performance. The carbon savings resulted from the fact that the initial design had recommended the use of aluminium. The decision to replace this with charred Accoya wood was one of a number of material decisions made to enhance the building’s environmental performance and credentials. Overall, the use of low-carbon materials resulted in a saving of 3,000 tonnes of carbon[1]. The charred wood façade is installed on the GRAD railing system to combine modernity with the traditional. The GRAD system holds the wood in place whilst remaining completely hidden to preserve the building’s unique biophilic design. Emmanuel Combarel, director at Emmanuel Combarel Dominique Marrec Architectes (ECDM), said: “At the genesis of the project, there was the belief that a workspace should be conceived as a response to the aspirations of our time. The aim was to create a less secluded place, and therefore more open to our environment. […] The park was the starting point for us to develop offices within a garden. “The project takes place in a location where the city is transforming. […] The building is black and understated; it speaks of material and work on the material, of wood and protective carbon. It is black, without color, it addresses the daylight or nighttime to reveal multiple reflections, a shell that already carries a lot of history. […] Many elements of the facade […] allow for modulation of its relationship with its environment and natural control of its climatology.[2]” Laurens Notenboom, head of sales for France at Accsys, added: “Using Accoya aligns with the sustainability criteria of the project. BLACK embodies a vision for urban developments of the future. Its low carbon credentials place it amongst the most ambitious projects in France. “We worked closely with Henry Timber, who supplied the Accoya, profiled to the specific size for this unique project. “The project is another result of the great partnership between Accoya, Henry Timber and Les Bruleurs de Bois within the established value chain in the French market– and the first one involving a low carbon cladding application. The GRAD clipping system has been used with the ultra-high performing wood; with Accoya being chosen for its durability, stability in Shou Sugi Ban form and its high sustainability credentials.” Henry Timber worked with Les Bruleurs de Bois, who completed all the charring on Accoya for the BLACK’s exterior. Les Bruleurs de Bois are one of few manufacturers in France mastering the art of charring wood using the ancestral Japanese Shou Sugi Ban technique.

CAESAR FURNISHES THE SPACES OF AN IMPRESSIVE SOUTH KOREAN OFFICE BUILDING

Caesar Furnishes the Spaces of an Impressive South Korea Office Building

Seoul, South Korea: almost 10 million inhabitants and an extraordinary economic-financial structure that places it among the world’s strongest economies. This is home to the headquarters of some of the most famous multinationals, embedded in an incredibly high housing and demographic background. Offices, industries, trade centres, banks and financial institutions make it the New York of East Asia. Yeouido – the district where most of the banks and the Seoul Stock Exchange are located – is referred to as “Korea’s Wall Street”. A melting pot of cultures and influences, where the Made in Italy flag is also held high by Caesar, which has furnished the floors and walls of the Hall of an imposing Office Building with the quality of its marble-effect porcelain stoneware. The Anima Futura collection, laid in two different colours – Amazing Silver and Majestic White – dictates the majestic and solemn mood of the premises, with its timeless marble look. Astonishing and enlightening are the musts of slabs that change the connotations of the environment, making it shine and extending it. A scenic presence that also imposes itself on the eye thanks to the different features characterising all surfaces: sharp or hinted veins, striking colour transitions, delicate or complex visual textures. If the delicate veins of Majestic White run across the ceramic tile and characterise spaces with their fascination, Amazing Silver stands out for its noble elegance, thanks to its intricate pattern of veins ranging from anthracite to bronze. An impactful combination in the name of refinement and taste, for a memorable and unique environment. Building, Design & Construction Magazine | The Choice of Industry Professionals

SCREF secures planning permission for prime Bloomsbury 106,000 sq ft office repositioning

SCREF secures planning permission for prime Bloomsbury 106,000 sq ft office repositioning

The Schroders Capital UK Real Estate Fund (‘SCREF’) has secured planning permission to redevelop Minerva House, Fitzroy House, and Telephone Exchange, contiguous, part Grade II listed landmark office buildings on Chenies Street in Bloomsbury into a 106,736 sq ft high-quality workspace, a 37% increase on the current floor area, following the addition of two further floors and a roof terrace. Located just off London’s Tottenham Court Road, the asset is well placed to benefit from the newly re-opened Tottenham Court Road and Goodge Street underground stations, providing connections to the Central, Northern and Elizabeth lines. SCREF will work closely with development partner Stanhope to sensitively reposition the heritage office buildings – which sit in the Bloomsbury Conservation Area – into a sustainability and wellbeing-led office scheme, designed by architects Morris+Company. During the redevelopment, 87% of the existing building structure along with 84% of the existing primary facades will be retained utilising a re-use first approach reducing embodied carbon during the construction process. Reflecting the growing demand for sustainable and energy efficient office assets, Schroders Capital’s expert offices team alongside Stanhope will ensure the upgraded Chenies Street asset achieves best-in-class sustainability and wellbeing credentials, targeting EPC B, WELL Gold, BREEAM Excellent and an NABERS UK certifications. The enhanced building will also use electrical heating only, deliver improved natural ventilation to enhance occupier wellbeing, and include rainwater harvesting systems. The redesigned Chenies Street asset also places a strong focus on occupier wellbeing and will feature amenities such as a large communal reception space, bike storage, fitness and wellness studios, a café, and a new roof terrace to enable future tenants to attract and retain the best talent. Chenies Street will also feature fit-for-purpose floorplates which are capable of being let as whole or subdivided, offering maximum flexibility to attract a wide variety of tenants ranging from international companies to local SMEs and start-ups. The proposed scheme is aligned with Camden Council’s 2025 objectives which sets out a vision for the future of the borough as it aims to create a safe, fair, creative, and active community. During the construction process a percentage of construction jobs and apprenticeships at the project will be offered to local people, and biodiversity will be enhanced through the creation of local ‘pocket parks’ as well as a new green wall on the exterior of the building. The building is located close to Goodge Street and the new Tottenham Court Road underground stations, and further Green transportation is encouraged through increased e-bike and scooter provision, as well as improved pedestrianisation around the asset. Rob Cosslett, Fund Manager for Schroders Capital, said: “The redevelopment of Minerva House, Fitzroy House, and Telephone Exchange in Chenies Street outlines SCREF’s commitment to investing in sustainability-led, high-quality office assets in well-connected locations. Located within London’s ‘Knowledge Quarter’, the asset is well situated to benefit from the continued demand for best-in-class office space from occupiers in the life sciences, technology, and higher education sectors. “The approved plans demonstrate the development and asset management capabilities of the experienced Schroders Capital offices team to identify opportunities to add value and increase returns for our investors. Our focus remains on maximising the value potential and sustainability credentials of assets across our portfolio, which will attract the best talent and strongest occupiers, whilst enhancing surrounding areas to benefit local communities.” Building, Design & Construction Magazine | The Choice of Industry Professionals
