State-of-the-art 40,000 ft2 company headquarters
Dowlas UK Limited has instructed works to commence at Weston Gateway Business Park for a brand new state-of-the-art headquarters office for Knightstone Housing Association. This prestigious site will house over 250 staff.
Comprising 40,000 square feet of net office space, the new office will be built over three floors with Knightstone occupying two floors by Spring 2013. As well as the new office space the building will also include training facilities, meeting rooms and informal spaces. The design will maximise natural light to create a pleasant and healthy working environment.
Good for the environment
The Knightstone building will go beyond the minimum building standards and will achieve a BREEAM rating of very good. To save on energy costs, PV solar energy panels will be placed on the south facing side of the roof. Orientated on an east west axis, south facing windows will be shaded from the summer sun by Brise Soleil aluminium louvers.
It's fantastic news that Knightstone has chosen to invest in a new 40,000ft 2 headquarter office. This is one of the largest office deals in the south west and also represents significant development progress within the Junction 21 Enterprise Area at Weston
