SUPER INSULATED OFFICES, STANNINGTON
The 12,480 sq ft office and conference centre for Rivergreen Developments at St Mary’s Park, Stannington (the former site of St Mary’s Hospital) has been designed and constructed to minimise environmental impact. From triple-glazed windows and natural ventilation system down to shower facilities for commuting cyclists and lunch-time runners, the development scores highly on the BREEAM sustainability scale.
The building is kitted out with state-of-the-art communications with fast-fibre broadband throughout, a boardroom with interactive smart screen and conference space for 100 delegates with a super-size wall projection screen.
The original Rivergreen Centre in Durham, also designed by JDDK, was hailed for its design and impact and won the 2007 RICS National Award for Sustainability, a 2007 RIBA award and the 2007 Sustainability, Commercial, Design & Innovation and Project of the Year categories of the RICS North East Renaissance Awards. The Rivergreen Centre Northumberland was shortlisted for the RICS NE Social Impact Award.
