Hoare Lea, part of the Tetra Tech High Performance Buildings Group provided sustainability, lighting design, and mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) services for RHS Bridgewater, a major tourism and horticultural destination.
The challenge was to create a welcome building that connected the surrounding gardens using high levels of glazing. Our aim was to provide the perfect start and end to visitors’ day. The historic location made it vital for the site’s heritage to be protected while also being completely transformed to host contemporary features.
Tetra Tech’s engineering solutions had to ensure an uncompromised internal environment while highlighting the stunning architectural features, including a timber ceiling and supporting structural trees.
