The Head Office of Glasdon Group is in Blackpool, Lancashire. They required a new office to support the group’s innovation and exports and for this to be a flagship building within their existing site. Working closely with the Glasdon project manager, we were able to develop a brief to their exact requirements and set out a design proposal for their comment and sign off. To provide a low energy building, we worked with the architectural team on developing various external wall insulation options to provide the most innovative solution. All the thermal elements were reviewed and where possible, increased to ensure a high thermal building envelope.
Heat pumps were used to deliver the heating/cooling throughout the building which had one of the highest efficiencies on the market. This building was recognised for a Blackpool Civic Award for Best New Building for Excellence in Design.
