Cambridgeshire County Council Offices, Huntingdon

Working with developer DE Clegg, in partnership with Cambridgeshire County Council these offices form part of the competition winning ‘The Walks’ Masterplan. The building is intensively occupied with open plan office space and includes a top floor external terrace looking across Huntingdon.

The design team has exercised considerable skill in successfully knitting a large modern building into the townscape of a historic market town. The design was developed through close consultation with the Local Planning Authority, Historic England, Local Interest Groups and CABE.

The office is a low energy building using natural ventilation combined with night purging to ensure a comfortable internal environment. Predictive computer modelling techniques have been employed to assess the environment achieved and to develop the most effective environmental control measures.
