The Brief from the Client, John Laing Developments Limited, was to create an attractive and high quality office development utilising the Grade 2 Listed Chateau building formerly occupied by the Post Office, as an entrance into the major new office redevelopment.
The five floors of office development, with an overall floor area of 15000 m2, have been designed to blend sympathetically with the Listed building and at the same time create a distinctive and prestigious office development. The building was let to the TSB Bank Plc creating a new national headquarters. The interiors have been designed to the highest standard with full air conditioning, suspended ceilings and integrated lighting, raised floors and the latest technology including an Energy Management control System. The falls across the site have been utilised to provide two levels of car parking at lower ground and basement levels.
