CGA has recently handed over two substantial office buildings for Mantle, at their Thremhall Park site in Essex, further expanding our growing ‘workplace' portfolio.
These two buildings represent the first phase of Mantle’s ambitious plans to expand this heavily wooded and heritage-rich site, to offer greater capacity and variety of commercial floorspace. Consent for these and two further buildings was secured by CGA in 2016. The buildings stand next to a moat, a protected tree belt, a Georgian Mansion and a grouping of Grade II barns, and take some visual cues from the local vernacular in their use of black timber and plain tile, whilst remaining clearly modern, robust and practical. Exposed feature structures on concrete columns and a very dark, low sheen paint finish give the buildings their more contemporary aesthetic.
