Sefton councillors unanimously approve plans for innovative £75m campus in Bootle
25 October 2019
Sefton planning committee voted to grant consent for the proposal of a new office complex for Santander in Bootle.
The project celebrates Santander's 50th anniversary on the site and will replace the existing offices to rehouse a workforce of 2,500 staff. The Bootle Campus has fostered a rich sense of community in the generations of people who have worked on the site. This community is the driving force behind this forward-thinking approach to design, creating an environment with a focus on innovation, energy efficiency and employee well-being.
Constructed from a composite of CLT and a steel frame, the project will use passive radiant ceiling panels and has a central atrium space to heat and cool the building.
The building is targeting BREEAM Excellent and WELL Gold accreditation and will sit in a new 2.5 hectare public park containing retail pavilions and sports facilities. Construction is set to start in March 2020.
We are providing M&E, Acoustics, BREEAM AP and Wellbeing services for the project, working alongside Jack Carter Architects, Adamson Associates, Thornton Thomasetti, Momentum, Planit IE and Osborne + Co.
