Westside, Hemel Hempstead

Westside in Apsley, Hemel Hempstead was remodelled, refurbished and extended to provide contemporary Grade A office accommodation. Located alongside the Grand Union Canal, it was built as a landmark headquarters for British Telecoms in 1990.

A once tired and dated office building is now bright, modern and energy efficient. Highlights include a new café, a bespoke entrance canopy and full height ash timber cladding in the atriums. Elegant design brings together private office space and communal business lounge areas.

Purpose-built showers and changing facilities complement the new secure cycle parking and landscaped garden areas, which access a canal-side footpath well used by cyclists and runners.
