Architectural Emporium were asked to unlock the building’s potential as the scheme had stalled for numerous years due to changes in market conditions and the large cost associated with structural works required to install the proposed atrium. This listed red brick building is 150m long and sits alongside the railway station. It forms a key part of the regeneration of Huddersfield. The atrium in the original design was preventing the building refurbishment due to escalating costs, so we decided to move services and meeting/break-out space into the centre of the plan to increase floor area for offices, therefore making the scheme viable and more profitable. AE are designing the scheme in packages so that work can be phased and the building can be partially let to fund future phases. A new build external stair with projecting cafe and deck has been designed to link existing landscape levels around the building perimeter. This project is currently under construction.
