66 Queen Square, Bristol – fusing new and old

66 Queen Square in Bristol was the first private development financed by Skanska in the UK. The project on a 1225m2 site in the city centre included the refurbishment of a Grade II listed building and the addition of a new five-storey office, plus basement. The Grade A office has achieved a BREEAM score of “Excellent” and has been designed and constructed using as many Building Information Modelling (BIM) tools as practicable. Despite being on a relatively small site, the building incorporates striking features, components such as reinforced and post-tensioned concrete and an intricate steelwork frame, and a full refurbishment in a conservation area. 66 Queen Square won the BIM Project Application Award at the British Construction Industry Awards in 2014.
