The Mint – Sweet Street Leeds
The Mint is an impressive eight storey glazed building with an internal atrium courtyard and 117500sqft of office floor plate.
Procured on a Design & Build basis with negotiated Cat B fit-out. The new build facility consisted of 8 storeys of open plan office with one levels of basement car park and Ground Floor Reception.
The office floors were carefully designed to minimise the number of columns required to allow flexible occupation. Floor-to-ceiling glass on all floors provides a panoramic view of the local area, Leeds city centre which needed careful consideration and modelling during the design process for Part L compliance of the building regulations. Air conditioning and optimum floor depths ensure this is an environment that staff will thrive in.
FHP was appointed as Building Services Engineering Consultants to provide full co-ordinated detailed design and working drawings for the Main Contractor.
We worked closely with the Architects providing a design that maximised the use of the buildings thermal mass to successfully contribute to achievement of a BREEAM Excellent rating.
