Nord has developed One Portwall Square, an exciting new office building in Bristol, close to Temple Meads railway station within Bristol’s prime commercial district.
Designed by AHMM, the new build, six storey office comprises 33,767 sq ft of commercial space fronted by a newly created landscaped pocket square providing much needed public amenity in this evolving part of the city. All upper floors feature a south facing terrace overlooking the square and the retained silver maple trees.
Formerly a disused squash court and car park, the development combines the best in contemporary architectural design with a focus on occupant wellbeing and sustainability to deliver a new type of office for Bristol. The building incorporates an innovative mixed-mode ventilation system utilising in-slab cooling and opening windows and together with its generous volumes and clean floor plates delivers flexible workspaces for a modern generation of tenants.

Additionally, the building has achieved WiredScore and Active Score Certification Platinum in recognition of its commitment to outstanding connectivity and exceptional cycling amenities.
