S333 wins planning in Plymouth
Plymouth city planners have backed a multi-purpose building by S333, combining offices, car parking and retail.
The £8.5 million building forms part of a newly planned entrance and visitor hub to the city’s Derriford Hospital, and will also include landscaping and a public plaza.
It is designed to provide meeting places and amenities for the hospital’s 11,000 staff and visitors. Floor plates are grouped to create a series of bands that follow the natural slope, creating walkways, terraces and areas of shelter.
Work on site is due to start at the end of the year ahead of completion in 2012. Covering 1ha, it will include 1,050sq m of offices plus 775sq m of public plaza and 2,000sq m of green sedum roof.
