Trident acted as Project Manager, Contract Administrator and Cost Consultant on a comprehensive Grade A CAT A redevelopment of Radio House. The building was a 1960’s property on St. Andrew’s Road, within the Chesterton Conservation Area in Cambridge.
The proposed works significantly improved the efficiency and layout of the floor plates through the consolidation of existing entrances and cores to a single core. Existing external elevations were replaced with new brick masonry and the rear façade replaced with a combination of terracotta and concrete cladding panels, glazed curtain walling and increased glazing to sensitively modernise the appearance. This combined with new M&E services will improve the thermal performance of the building and reduce CO2 usage.
The introduction of new shower facilities and a cycle storage area, a central BMS to manage the new MEP services and a automated entrance with level thresholds, provides a modern facility meeting the needs of a wide range potential occupiers.
