Bridgewater Place

Workplace retrofit & reuse to target Net Zero

Project summary

  • Client: Martley Capital
  • Location: Leeds
  • Sector: Workplace
  • Size: 23,396sqm
  • Status: Stage 4 Tender


DLG Architects are finalising detailed design proposals for the extensive retrofit of this Leeds landmark, bringing the arrival and communal facilities spaces in to the 21st century.  

The existing Bridgewater Place is an office and residential high-rise development south of Leeds train station. The ambition for the project is to modernise the offices and improve the tenant offer to provide a best-in-class workspace, delivering the project within the constraints of occupied high-rise residential accommodation above.  

BREEAM Excellent office spaces, a new roof terrace with city views, a revitalised atrium with planting features, improved external landscaping and signage, and a new commercial unit at atrium level, will transform the overall building experience, whilst intelligent approaches to building fabric, specification and services will see a 62% reduction in operational carbon use and target Net Zero in use.
