Britplas on board with Bristol office development

Britplas have been awarded the contract to provide the vertical exterior facade to a new commercial building at Bristol Business Park.

The package, worth around £1m, is Britplas’ first for main contractor Bowmer and Kirkland and will see them carrying out the design and installation of all external glazing, cladding and doors. The building (no. 100) will provide 86,000 sq. ft. of Grade A offices over 5 floors and is set to become the new headquarters of Babcock International Technology, the UK’s largest maritime support company to the Royal Navy.

Britplas are due on site from May this year, with an eight month programme taking them to the start of 2019. The team will be installing a range of products and systems including Schüco FW 60 SG, Schüco ADS70 manual doors, Schüco ASS70 and Boon Edam Crystal Tourniket manual revolving drum doors.

Bristol Business Park is an established office park situated five miles north of Bristol City Centre with excellent transport links and within easy access of the M32, M4 and M5 Motorways.  Building 100 will be the first of three phases for the 7.3 hectare site, which will eventually total 150,000 sq. ft.

Another façade win for Britplas in Oxford

Britplas are delighted to announce our appointment to a further project for Barnwood Construction – Plot 12 Oxford Science Park, a new 500 person office block located in the heart of the Oxford Science district. Britplas have worked with Barnwood Construction on the successful completion of façade packages to two similar facilities previously – Thamesview and EZ1 at Milton Park in Oxfordshire for developer MEPC. Plot 12 features a striking design by Bogle Architects and aims to alleviate the lack of Grade A office space in the Oxford area, forming a cornerstone of the science park’s wider expansion plans.

The £2.1 million external envelope package awarded to Britplas includes the design, supply and installation of:

  • 3000m2 Schüco FW 50 SG with high performance solar control glass;
  • Shadow boxes;
  • Bespoke Marley Eternit Linea Cement Boards;
  • A unique anodised brise soleil system; and
  • An aerofoil canopy with 500mm blades.
  • Ventilated Louvre plant walls and plant room
  • Internal Atrium glazing

In total the building covers 61,500 sq ft of space over four storeys, which Britplas are set to seal from late June 2017 with an expected completion date of the end of October this year.
