New Shire Hall,
Alconbury Weald

This fantastic Civic building has been designed to provide an innovative and contemporary workspace for the Council’s staff along with a series of public facing amenities.

The office area includes workstations, meeting rooms / breakout and acoustic furniture areas. The public-facing amenities include a reception atrium and break out area with enterprise café and a large multi-function meeting space that can be subdivided into three spaces. To the rear, a new car park benefits from a unique solar array shading system distributed amongst generously landscaped areas.

The Civic hub was built using a structural steel frame with curtain walling including solid and glazed panels.

Drayton Windows designed, fabricated and installed Kawneer’s AA100 Curtain Wall and AA720 Hi Doors.
