Evolve Business Community – London
Evolve Watford – A Galliard Company
Bowman Riley prepared a design proposal for Evolve Watford to increase the commercial space with an existing business park in Watford.
Our proposal involves increasing the total number of commercial units from 21 to 37 by introducing a feature central building and infill units around the site.
The feature central building will be constructed using shipping containers to house 10 additional business units with shared WC facilities. The introduction of the shipping containers creates a contemporary industrial aesthetic to give it a unique edge over nearby competing business parks.
The style and colour of the infill units reflect the style of the existing buildings whilst creating a contemporary appearance using a dark grey colour palette with white roller shutter doors.
We have considered the careful phasing of the construction works to minimise disruption to the existing occupiers, who will not need to vacate their premises or cease operation.
Working with the local authority and highways consultants, we used our ingenuity to increase the number of car parking spaces from 43 to 76 without causing traffic congestion. This was achieved by raising the height of the central building to allow for parking beneath. We also added three electric car parking spaces and space for 24 bicycles.
Our proposal enhances and extends the offer of this commercial development to achieve the best result for our client in a thriving area of north London.
