Evolve New Business Community – Colchester, Essex
Evolve Colchester – A Galliard Group Company
Bowman Riley is working as the project architect and interior designer on the creation of Evolve, a vibrant new business community complete with lifestyle facilities on the outskirts of Colchester town centre.
Evolve Colchester will offer 90 small business units and five standalone offices designed with start-up businesses in mind. This project forms part of London developer, Galliard Group’s overall plan to build affordable workspace schemes in London and the South East to meet the demand caused by a significant increase in small and medium-sized firms across London and the South East choosing to locate to community-style workspace schemes.
The development has been designed to create a business environment that can accommodate a mixture of uses, from start-up businesses to storage and manufacturing. This flexible accommodation will allow for the changing property needs of small companies and meet differing demands in the commercial office market.
The accommodation will be divided into two different types of units. The western half of the site will be occupied by five 95m2 two-storey office buildings with a central atrium. Each unit can accommodate eight office units.
The eastern half of the site will be occupied by 90 smaller business units designed to appeal to start-up companies. These will be split into two standard sizes (with type variations) ranging from 37.8m2 to 90m2. The units are supported by a central hub comprising a gym, cafe, meeting spaces and a hot desk zone.
