Scott Brownrigg’s design for the redevelopment of two storey office building, Aztec 1000, at Aztec West in Bristol for client CEG has received planning approval from South Gloucestershire Council.
The planning allows for the extensive refurbishment of the office building, originally constructed in the 1980’s, to reposition it for modern day office requirements. The £9m scheme will deliver a significant improvement of the appearance of the building with an additional floor, and complete reworking of the external envelope giving a dramatic contemporary exterior and offer modern office suites that meet current occupier requirements including: IT upgrades, tenant facilities such as café, gym, break out area and additional amenity space.
Scott Brownrigg have reconfigured the internal layout of the building, introducing a new gymnasium, new central core, reception and lakeside café restaurant.
Taking into consideration the building’s position amid a mature landscape and with an adjacent lake, the scheme utilises the landscape providing notable improvements to lakeside views and rooftop terraces to enhance the setting of the building and the experience of its occupants.
The approved scheme will result in a highly energy efficient office, with an improved public realm, better accessibility and a considerable increase in cycle parking.
The regenerated Aztec West will support the continued prosperity of the Business Park, offering the socio-economic benefits associated with ensuring ongoing occupancy and delivering additional floorspace.
With planning now granted, the scheme is due to be completed mid-2021.
