Bristol & Avon engaged Mackenzie Wheeler to design their new offices for the administrative functions of their growing company to be constructed on an open site in Avonmouth. The site is approximately 11.5 acres and also accommodates the company’s recycling, transport and waste transfer operations.

The building was constructed entirely from shipping containers to assist with the speed of procurement and construction and to allow for future flexibility and expansion, but also because shipping containers, being highly recyclable, fitted perfectly with the company’s highly sustainable credentials.

The building forms a dramatic and effective advertisement for the company, particular to users of the M49 immediately to the east of the site. The containers have been arranged in a playful manner to include projecting bays, open terraces and a lift tower within an upright container to create an engaging and eye catching architectural presence.
