Vinci Construction UK have commenced work on a new, £100m office building in Blackpool, which forms part of the third phase of the Talbot Gateway regeneration scheme led by Muse Developments.

When complete the seven storey, 215,000 sq ft office building will become home to over 3000 staff from the Department of Work and Pensions.

Hannan Associates are providing Building Services Engineering Consultancy including operational energy modelling via advanced dynamic simulation modelling and BREEAM assessor duties for the building. 

The building has been designed to be ultra-low energy with no fossil fuels used. Low-carbon heating and cooling to the office will be provided via high efficiency chillers and air source heat pumps. Demand-driven ventilation will also be provided, helping to improve indoor air quality while saving energy during periods of reduced occupancy. Domestic hot water will be generated via water to water heat pumps and a photovoltaic array at roof level will generate electricity on-site.

The building has been designed to achieve a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating and is anticipated to complete in March 2025.

We are pleased to be part of Muse Development’s design team working alongside Make Architects, RPS, Chroma, Arup and main contractor VINCI Construction UK.

Hannan Associates were also part of the team who designed and delivered the first phase of Talbot Gateway, which included Blackpool Council’s home, the award winning Bickerstaffe House.
