The client 'Asdan' are a publishing business in Bristol, looking to provide more office space for their expanding business.

The existing building consisted of an original main office building at the front, two wings at the rear with a storage/printing area between the wings. Above the storage/printing area was a further mezzanine storage area and low level pitched roof.

The scheme was to remove the low level mezzanine floor and provide a new floor at the same level as the adjacent wings, with a new roof over. The storage/printing area below was maintained with new structural steel supports on a rectangular grid for the new floor and roof above. Further storage area to replace the original mezzaine storage was provided at a high level to the rear within the extended new roof.

The existing corrugated roof covering to the existing wings was stripped and replaced with new tiles and roof lights. The existing roof trusses were strengthened to accomodate this. The new roof between is of similar roof truss design.

The completed project provided an extra two hundred metres of open plan office space, a cafe area and sixty square metres of storage area to replace the demolished mezzanine storage floor.

The result is a light and airy modern working space situated near Bristol city centre.
