Project details

The Royal College of Physicians opens an exciting new purpose-built office in partnership with Liverpool City Council: RCP at The Spine.

The design has been informed by the WELL standard, which implements, validates and measures features that support human health and wellbeing. WELL standards comprise seven concepts: air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort and mind. The Spine will be a groundbreaking, world-leading example of biophilic architecture, supporting mental and physical wellbeing for staff and visitors.

We provided full environmental design services, working in collaboration with AHR architects to achieve BREEAM Outstanding / WELL Platinum. Heating is provided from a new low carbon district heat network, mitigating emission of local pollutants and helping Liverpool respond to the climate emergency.
