One Portwall Square wins the 2023 BCO National Commercial Workplace Award

One Portwall Square in Bristol has won the national Commercial Workplace Award from the British Council for Offices (BCO), setting the benchmark for UK office excellence.  It is the first time that a commercial office development from the South/South West region has ever taken home the national prize for this category.

Described by the BCO as, “’an exceptional example of innovation, showing what can be achieved on a relatively compact city centre site,” the building’s low-carbon design and sustainable mixed mode heating, cooling, and ventilation system, were praised by the judges. They also highlighted the incorporation of concrete core cooling as a means of delivering comfortable temperature conditions for occupiers – the first of its kind in a Bristol office.

A tremendous achievement for Nord and the entire team.
