Radius Payment Solutions

Client: Pochin Developments & Radius Payment Solutions

Architect: AEW

Budget: £10m

Completed: 2018

We were employed by Pochin Developments Limited to provide performance design duties for the M&E engineering services for this new BREEAM Very Good, 66,000sqft office development for Radius Payment Solutions.

The four-storey project at Crewe Business Park includes a gym, communal meeting areas and café.

Our Building & Energy Modelling Team supported our M&E engineers to deliver a Target Emission Rating of 25.8 and a Building Emission Rating of 17.5.  The building scored a 32% improvement on Part L.  It also achieved an EPC A Rating.

This was delivered with enhanced U values and enhanced solar glazing to reduce energy demand for heating & cooling.  Heating and cooling was provided via high efficient heat pumps (COP heating 4.97 / cooling 6.29) serving ducted Fan Coil Units with heat recovery.  Fresh air was provided from Variable Air Volume central plant with motorised dampers, air quality sensors & variable speed drive to provide only the requisite amount of fresh air and isolate unoccupied wings.  The design also included LED lighting.

The project has been shortlisted for two key awards:

  • BCO Corporate Workplace North of England 2019
  • RICS NW Commercial Property of the Year 2019

The fit-out was undertaken by Overbury.
