Henry Boot Construction has started building a sustainable office scheme that will be made up of a series of flexible ‘workpods’. The Fountain Court Workpods at Doncaster International Business Park will comprise 41 workpod office units of 1,450sq ft and 1,600sq ft. The scheme is designed for adaptability in use as some units can be merged to form larger offices, by knocking out panels within party walls. The buildings have a passive solar design integrating natural ventilation.
The development will begin with a first phase of 13 buildings, scheduled for completion next May.
The scheme is being developed by Prospect Property Group, and is supported by £1.5m funding from the European Regional Development Fund. Architect is Edward Architecture.
