British Waterways

The British Waterways development consists of 32,000sqft of high quality office accommodation on four floors. This is above sixty undercroft and external car spaces and conference facilities. The building received a BREEAM 'Excellent' energy efficiency rating; one of only sixteen in the UK at the time. An ashlar stone entrance rotunda with an external steel colonnade is linked to the main body of the building by a fully glazed staircase. The reception area acts as a visual node visible across the River Aire. Office accommodation is located on the first, second, third & fourth floors with the final floor stepped back to provide a balcony for the executive accommodation. Particular sustainable features of the building include the overall design and construction as a ‘heat sink’ with natural ventilation. Further sustainable elements have since been included with the introduction of geothermal heat pumps, which provide an energy and capital efficient heating system.
