The Works is the first of the new buildings to be constructed at Unity Campus, providing striking architecture and high-quality space created within the original pre-cast concrete frame. Housed within the pre-cast concrete frame of the original building, The Works now provides modern office and lab accommodation, ideal for technology and R&D companies. Truly flexible office/lab spaces sit either side of ‘The Street’ – a 100m full-height atrium area providing exceptional furnished breakout space, informal meeting areas and space to relax.
Flexible Design & Terms
The ground floor (29,428 sq ft) of The Works has been constructed to a ‘shell and core+’ standard, recognising that occupiers may have a fitout requirement of a bespoke nature. Offices, development labs, R&D facilities and precision manufacturing can all be accommodated thanks to the heavy load concrete floors, castellated steel frame and the innovative ‘hollow-rib’ ceiling system. Lighting, HVAC systems and floor coverings are all able to be specified to provide a fit-for-purpose fitout.
The first floor (28,912 sq ft) of The Works has been fitted out to a Cat A office specification, with raised floors, floor boxes, heating/cooling systems and high standard office lighting. The north and south elevations benefit from 37% glazing as well as significant natural light from the large central atrium.
1,900 tonnes of CO2e was saved by utilising the previous building’s existing concrete frame and substructure when developing The Works, and has reduced the total environmental impact from construction materials over the building’s lifespan. This is equivalent to:
