Council House, Bristol City Council

The grade II listed,1930's home of Bristol City Council is undergoing major repairs to the mechanical and electrical services. It will have underfloor heating replaced and new electrical installations over a phased programme.
Initial phases involved internal refurbishment works to various offices in the five storey building to update the accommodation to present day standards. The present phase involves replacement of the majority of the plumbing, heating and electrical installations through the building.
Works have also involved operations within the Council Chambers and Ante rooms themselves areas that are of a significant historical nature and required careful planning through the design and construction process. Costs have been strictly controlled through the management of the contingency fund, despite pressures from the discovery of problems within the existing building and the demands for additional works.
Operations within the Council Chambers and ante-rooms, which are of significant historical interest, required careful planning throughout the design and construction process.
The use of rainwater recycling for flushing toilets and an air-conditioning system that will discharge excess heat into the surrounding water filled moat rather than expelling it into the atmosphere are important environmental elements of the project
