Bond Bryan was commissioned by British Land to design a cluster of automotive dealerships on a brownfield site adjoining the client's Meadowhall Shopping Centre.

The proposals conformed to British Land’s broader development strategy and were designed to act as a catalyst for further development of their land holdings.

From the outset, due to the prominent gateway location, the local planning authority imposed strict high quality design and environmental requirements, far exceeding typical dealership standards. They also required that the scheme be presented to the Sheffield Urban Design Review Panel, including independent design assessors, prior to planning submission.

Working closely with our client, project team and the three automotive dealers, we orchestrated the briefing process and responded to the respective corporate design requirements, stringent planning/environmental requirements and our client’s strict budget and timescales.

Within four months of commission we developed a fully coordinated design that was submitted for planning approval. The scheme was well received by the Urban Design Review Panel and their report stated:

‘… the Panel applauded the approach taken by the design team and it considered that the approach would provide an exemplar of how to design this sort of facility...’

Sustainability measures included incorporation of “brown roofs” (using on-site spoil); ‘A’ rated materials; rainwater harvesting/grey water use; geothermal heating and cooling; passive solar heating; solar shading; drainage in accordance with “SuDS” principles; recycled materials and a green waste/recycling management system.
