Walsall Housing Group offices by Bisset Adams

  • Comment

Planning permission has been granted for this new £6.5 million town centre office for Walsall Housing Group (whg), Walsall’s biggest social landlord

Work is expected to start at the site on the corner of Littleton Street East and Hatherton Street in early 2010 and be completed in summer 2011.

Iain Johnston, of Bisset Adams said: ‘The architectural design is in response to the site context and topography. It is also inspired by the client’s brief to create a place to celebrate clarity and communication. The ‘atrium slice’ at the heart of the space allows understanding and orientation and will be a forum to convey whg’s community involvement and the environmental performance of the building.’

The ground floor will be accessible to the public, with the three floors above primarily open-plan office accommodation.

The design aims for a BREEAM rating of excellent for its sustainability, thanks to a sedum green roof, rainwater harvesting, photovoltaic and solar thermal renewable energy systems and air-source heat pump technology for heating and cooling.

The proposed 1.5 acre site forms part of Walsall Gigaport, also called the new Walsall Office Corridor. The vision is to create a business and enterprise quarter within the corridor to support the regeneration of Walsall. Other recent Walsall-based projects include: the new art gallery; the bus terminal; the Walsall College’s Wisemore Campus; the Manor Hospital redevelopment and the Urban Splash Waterfront.
