Arco Head Office, Hull

This design and build project saw the delivery of a stunning 4 storey HQ for Arco Ltd which included CAT A fitout.

Sited on a very tight corner plot, adjacent to a new multi-storey car park (concurrently built by PDR), the office sits alongside the river Humber and affords views across Hull.

A welcoming double height reception area sits on the ground floor, with offices, kitchens, breakout areas, board, meeting rooms and welfare facilities mirrored on floors 1-3 with an outdoor balcony area to floor 3.

The southern face of the building has a fully glazed façade, therefore Chill Beam cooling, under-floor Plenum Displacement Air Ventilation and Premier Trench heating were installed to provide an energy efficient comfortable environment for staff.

Undercroft parking for 15 cars was constructed along with associated external hard and soft landscaping.

The scheme achieved BREEAM Very Good Rating.
