Genesis is the first phase of redeveloping the Millfield’s Trust HQ site that lies at the heart of Union Street, a civic spine that connects the three old towns of Plymouth.
The pioneering, ERDF and LEP funded project, is designed to create employment and serve the local community. It comprises flexible workspaces, meeting rooms, a full height internal atrium and living walls. Internal spaces benefit from high levels of natural daylight and generous circulation areas.
Portland stone cladding frames glazing elements, vertical gardens and carved reliefs on each elevation. The building has a high environmental performance and is fully accessible. Project managed by Macegreen Consulting the project provided opportunities for community involvement, work placements and apprenticeships for local residents, ensuring ownership and pride in the achievement.
