Green light for a sustainable HQ


Plans for a major new office development and multi-storey car park at Sadlers Mead, Chippenham have received planning approval from Wiltshire Council. The AHR-designed 31,748 ft2


office


development will provide a new headquarters for Chippenham- based renewable power firm Good Energy, enabling the company to expand its business alongside growth plans for the town. Adam Spall, regional director at AHR, said, “It was important for the new headquarters to reflect Good Energy’s nature as a clean energy firm, in order to truly feel like their own. To achieve this, our design is rooted in sustainable values.” He explained further: “This includes physical attributes: solar


panels, battery storage and on-site electric vehicle charging points, as well as more perceptive elements, such as giving each member of staff a view of both outdoor greenery and the sky. This is accomplished through the building’s design, which wraps around two large existing trees whilst maximising natural daylight.” Spall concluded: “With the site located within the conservation


area, our design draws from the character of the surroundings, resulting in an office that feels positive and in tune with its natural environment. It will provide an inspiring workplace internally, and externally, a great example for Chippenham’s future growth.” The inclusion of battery storage within the design will allow the client to retain energy generated on-site, as opposed to sending it back to the grid. This greatly reduces energy waste and allows the company to be more self-sufficient, utilising their own energy reserves during high demand, or periods when the photovoltaics are not producing energy.


The office development has been approved alongside a new 245- space, fully SWLEP-funded multi-storey car park for Wiltshire Council, with AHR’s design also including modern, sustainable features and charging for electric vehicles. Located adjacent to the new office on the edge of Monkton Park, the design of the facade is inspired by woodland. Vertical, spaced timber sections provide further natural cohesion


and reinforce the relationship with the new office, which also uses similar patterns of solids and voids on the brickwork exterior.
