Client: L & B Developments Ltd | Contractor: Lotus Construction Ltd | Value: £3.5m
Shire House is a modern, self-contained office building occupying a prominent, pivotal site on the fringe of Bradford City Centre. It replaces a derelict warehouse previously located on this brownfield site and is acting as a catalyst for regeneration of the surrounding locality.
The high standard of external finishes of the building and the bold frontage creates something visually new for this area, adding interest and reflecting the modernity of the newer local buildings.
It is energy efficient and well insulated with high specification finishes throughout. The design team and the client worked closely together to provide a flexible design incorporating many features including tinted glazing to minimise solar glare, comfort cooling, energy efficient lighting, open plan design and extensive landscaping.
Shire House was awarded Best Commercial Building in the Bradford District Design Awards 2006.
