155 Brook Drive Milton Park
This project consists of a bespoke 9,000 ft² office space adjoined to 9,000 ft² warehouse space located in Milton Park, one of Europe’s largest business parks. The site location is in an Enterprise Zone, a prominent location that is expanding on the success of Milton Park. The development combines the tenant’s two existing business operations into one building, a two-storey office building adjoined to the warehouse together with associated car park and loading bay providing modern accommodation for the business needs.
The modern and contemporary CAT B building will achieve a BREEAM “Very Good” rating utilising low carbon technologies, high efficiency fabric, efficient lighting controls and energy efficient air source heat pumps. A ventilation strategy was developed with SRA Architects to provide naturally ventilated offices to the development whilst providing comfortable temperatures during the summer period, with compliance with CIBSE overheating criteria.
Key challenges included achieving a BREEAM “Very Good” rating without renewable technologies and providing natural ventilation to a deep plan office with a single sided façade. This was achieved by the introduction of openable clerestory widows and louvers.
