New Build

We work across a broad range of diverse sectors and look to offer our clients solutions that embrace sustainability at its core value. The aim of the practice is to create sustainable buildings and communities - from masterplanning, green infrastructure and landscape design through to building design, material/ form, orientation and energy consumption.  Our in-house sustainability team ensures that green issues, the latest technologies and legislation are an integral part of every project we undertake.
The Charles Carter Building, is a key project within the practice's Lancaster University Campus masterplan, providing 4,000sqm of versatile and adaptable learning and teaching space.  The flexible floor plan is delivered through a rational grid, coupled with flexible partitioning and servicing.  A large central atrium brings natural light into the heart of the building, promoting communication between different departments.  The expressed superstructure, clad in brick, acts as a passive shading device to reduce solar gain.  This high quality, low cost building combines excellent design, good materials and innovation, resulting in a BREEAM 'Excellent' rating.

The practice is on site with their design for a new home for Lancaster University's Engineering Department.  The competition-winning scheme will deliver 4,750 sqm of workshop, laboratory and office space in two concrete-framed finger blocks either side of a dramatic four storey atrium.   A BREEAM 'Outstanding' rating is targeted, and this will be delivered by renewable energy sources including solar and wind provisions.  The design will make these aspects of the building's performance as visible and quantifiable as possible as part of the Department's environmental sustainability ethos.  The project further develops the practices' masterplan.
