INTERSPORTS HEROES, ST. HELIER
Our Client hoped to adapt two old buildings for creating a modern Sports retailing outlet. We advised this would not work commercially due to restricted floor areas divided by thick structural walls and differing floor levels. We demonstrated it was also cheaper to demolish and build a new purpose designed retail outlet.
This provided an opportunity to achieve unobstructed, sales floors gaining a strong street presence. We persuaded Planning there were material benefits creating a contemporary solution, rather than a pastiche of historic town centre architecture.
3 MULCASTER STREET, ST. HELIER
We know commercial Clients need to achieve a maximum net to gross internal floor space ratio, with good daylighting, an efficient layout and an excellent working environment.
Office projects benefit from our approach to achieving a net to gross ratio of 85% plus, linked to a medium depth plan form to provide a high level of daylighting and facilitate natural ventilation and cooling, dependent upon the particular site profile.Read More
