Hannan Associates are very pleased to have been part of the team who delivered Conwy County Borough Council’s new 100,000 sq ft Civic Offices in Colwyn Bay Town Centre after Muse Developments were chosen as the preferred development partner for the scheme during 2015.
The four storey, 100,000 sq ft office building has enabled the council to operate more efficiently and improve services for customers by consolidating staff and services into fewer sites.
The new building is BREEAM Excellent with an A rated Energy Performance Certificate. Passive design measures to reduce carbon emissions and energy consumption include enhanced insulation to the building envelope and engineered facade design.
The glazed proportion of the building façade and the central atrium maximizes natural daylight to offset the demand for lighting whilst at the same time high performance glazing minimizes thermal losses. To further reduce carbon emissions and energy consumption, the building’s heating and cooling is produced via air source heat pumps, highly efficient LED lighting and roof mounted photovoltaic arrays.
The project won the ‘Regeneration’ category and was also shortlisted for the ‘Design Through Innovation’ category at the RICS Awards 2019, Wales. It has also won the ‘Best Large Commercial Project’ award at the North Wales LABC Building Excellence Awards 2019 and has been shortlisted for a BCO Northern Award 2019 in the ‘Corporate Workplace’ category.
