South Grove House, Rotherham Horbury Group
In 2006 Race Cottam Associates was commissioned by Horbury Building Systems Limited to design a 32,000 sq. ft office complex for a site in Rotherham. The response to the detailed brief was a contemporary design solution using ‘green’ construction techniques which now forms one of Rotherham’s most striking commercial developments.
The design concept was a simple plan form, with a single central circulation spine serving office areas of varying size to each side. The building includes energy saving controls and a Sedum roof which supports biodiversity within the site, helps filter pollutants from the air and improves insulation.
