One Trinity Green is a managed workspace building in South Shields, offering 41 flexible office, workshop and hybrid units, within a 2700m2 structure.

Sustainability was a major area of focus from the outset and achieving BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ was a contractual requirement. Extensive thermal modelling was undertaken to inform a detailed mathematical simulation of the building’s thermal environment.

Using this simulation, the team was able to make informed decisions about all elements of the building. It also highlighted the opportunity to combine the building’s steel frame with steel decking and composite concrete floor slabs in order to optimise thermal mass. The design team made this a key part of the design and targeted the look and feel of a ‘modern Victorian warehouse’.

One Trinity Green is an Energy Performance Certificate ‘A’ rated building with a 20% improvement over the requirements of Part L.
