The Green Man, aptly named after its heritage, is a unique Commercial Project for an Owner Occupier Housing Association which is one of the first organisations to be governed by its residents. The structure is formed of glulam timber spanning across two floor plates of circa 2,140m2 (23,034 sq.ft), with a saw-tooth roof designed to run at 45 degrees to the main footprint and benefitting from passive ventilation via the north facing roof-lights, with the south facing roof angled to maximise the renewable energy utilising photovoltaics.
We have been instrumental in providing Project Management and Cost Consultancy Services from the conception of the brief, instigating and managing a mini-competition for the selection of the Design Team and then the procurement of the Main Contractor. During this time we have lead the design and construction works of this technically difficult development for a Client relatively new to commercial new builds.
Completed in summer 2013 the project was shortlisted for the 2014 "Building" 'Small Project of the Year' (up to £5M) Award, 2014 New London Awards under the "Civic, Culture & Sport" category and more recently shortlisted for the 2015 RICS Awards under the "Community Benefit" category.
