Hydrock worked with Salmon Harvester Properties (Salmon) to secure planning consent for a 210,000 net sq ft office headquarters at 4 Glass Wharf, Temple Quay, Bristol.

The site of 4 Glass Wharf is the third and final phase of Salmon’s development programme in Bristol’s Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone, which is adjacent to Temple Meads station and the Floating Harbour.  

Hydrock’s Transportation and Building Performance Engineering teams worked closely with Salmon to prepare the successful planning application. The building design is targeting a BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ rating and ‘Excellent’ as a minimum. Our engineers developed an Energy and Sustainability Strategy, a Waste Management Plan and carried out a BREEAM Pre-assessment. 

The 8-storey office building offers superb daylighting, green walls, brown roofs, a district heating connection, basement car park capable of charging 45 electric vehicles simultaneously and ample cycle storage. Our transportation specialists carried out a transport assessment and developed a travel plan in support of the development.  

The designs have been informed by the adjacent land uses, with particular attention paid to the relationship with the Grade I listed Bristol Temple Meads Station and the protected views of the Brunel building from the station forecourt.

For over 20 years Hydrock has delivered award-winning engineering projects across a wide variety of sectors. Contact us today to find out how we can help your business.
