New HQ building for Roper Rhodes

14 Feb 2020

Property consultancy Carter Jonas has completed the design and conversion of a new headquarters totalling approximately 19,500 sq ft for Roper Rhodes.

The supplier of bathroom furniture commissioned Carter Jonas to design a new headquarters to accommodate its growth, with increased operational efficiency and promoting the performance and productivity of employees as priorities

Located on Brassmill Lane Trading Estate in Bath, the environmentally friendly building's exterior is clad in a black ceramic material created with insulated rendering. Internally, Carter Jonas said the design has an industrial look and feel with exposed structures and services.

"Aesthetically, the building is a step-change from other office accommodation and warehousing in the area," said Carter Jonas associate partner Tom Lowe. "Owing to its unique exterior, it is set apart from other buildings in Bath with a crisp, contemporary look.

"We're proud to have led the project team on this and to have utilised the incredible expertise we have on our doorstep here in the South West.

"Our hope is that examples of high-quality commercial conversions such as this will inspire greater investment in the existing building stock in the region to make it meet the requirements of today’s businesses."
