1000 Aztec West

Bristol, England

An all-new glass structure for 1000 Aztec West

A £17 million remodelling and refurbishment of a 1980’s two storey office building in Bristol. The project was designed by Scott Brownrigg Architects and delivered by Beard Bristol for property group CEG and is the South West’s first Net Zero Carbon in operation out-of-town development. With a BREEAM Excellent rating, the all-electric building is powered by renewable energy and boasts energy-efficient heating, cooling and lighting systems.

The design required extensions to the existing floorplates, the addition of a new floor and a striking three-storey atrium to the centre of the stunning new, all-glass structure which has expanded the building from 38,000 to 80,000 sq ft. Located close to Aztec Lake, the building incorporates a state-of-the-art gym and a cafe, as well as places to eat, meet, drink and work.

The South East / West and the North East / West façades feature two of Metal Technology’s curtain walling products – System 17 SP (Silicone Pointed) and System 17 Capped. The concave façade, featuring the SP curtain walling, leads to the feature atrium area. The façade utilizes a range of extended feature caps to the transoms, creating a striking architectural vista. Metal Technology’s System 5-20D Hi+ thermally enhanced doors were also installed.
