Mechanical & Electrical Engineering Design


Southern Housing Group




The Dace Road development is proposed to become a hub for artists, creatives, and innovators. Located off Dace Road West, the site consists of a number of modern warehouse structures, which were constructed in the late 20th century. The development is a mix of commercial and residential buildings and in addition, will also provide 144 new homes in total. 

The commercial space includes light industrial and office spaces and will ensure the local community will experience a significant increase in employment.

A minimum BREEAM rating of Very Good is expected for the commercial space at the site. 

A total of five blocks will be developed on the site. Block A of the building will be fully commercial, while blocks B-E will have a ground floor commercial space and residential space above. Site collaboration and community aspects will be strengthened by an attractive courtyard and public realm.
