West Lakes – Atkins Whitehaven Office, Cumbria

S I Sealy worked for EIC on the design and build of a new £3.5m office facility for Atkins at the West Lakes Science & Technology Park near Whitehaven, Cumbria. Construction of the office, which was built to BREEAM rating ‘Very Good’, commenced in July 2014 with completion in May 2015.

S I Sealy was appointed to provide full mechanical and electrical consultancy services for the 21,000 sq. ft. bespoke scheme which was designed to reflect specialist use. The project included the installation of new mechanical ventilation and comfort cooling throughout the office.
