Mixed Use

The majority of large schemes we now work on are mixed use and typically comprise restaurant/bars, retail, residential and commercial developments. In most schemes the commercial space is offices and in a number of schemes it is laboratory space.
Our role
When designing mixed use schemes, it is important to consider all uses as each have particular challenges.

Restaurants, bars and retail units are typically designed as shell spaces and consideration needs to be given for Tenant plant to be added in. It is always preferable for a notional design to be carried out of Tenant services as part of the base build development, such as space for a restaurant’s kitchen extract plant and ductwork, space for Tenant’s cooling and connection opportunities to on-site wide energy works.
