Curtis Moore is delighted to have won the roofing works for Tesco Project Heart, a new development currently being constructed in Tesco’s Shire Park campus in Welwyn Garden City. It is set to be a new and exciting central hub for Tesco staff, providing flexible spaces for staff to learn, collaborate and innovate, as well as hosting facilities for staff wellbeing and also features a customer experience centre.
The new multifunctional space will provide an opportunity to host events, showcase products and promote new initiatives and its central atrium space will act as the building’s focal point, giving Tesco staff an opportunity to socialise and host presentations. The new campus will provide facilities such as testing kitchens, a gym, offices, a new Tesco Express , event space and atrium space.
Building work has begun on the development by award-winning contractor McLaren Construction and the Curtis Moore team will be joining them on site in September to install a Kalzip curved roofing system. The system’s low weight, durability, speed of construction and adaptability makes it ideal for this new build structure and we are looking forward to getting started on it later this year.
LOM Architecture and Design are working with Butler & Young, the UK’s leading built environment compliance consultancy who have been appointed on site to provide support to the design team, and are aiming to create a well-balanced open plan space that works for Project Heart.
The building form is sympathetic to the landscape, with a low sweeping roof line and curved plan form that reduces the visual impact across each elevation. The glazed atrium blurs the boundary between interior and exterior, allowing views through the building while reflecting the surrounding green space. The project is expected to complete in 2018.
Site development progress can be seen at the Project Heart mini site here.
