Rivergreen Centre

The Rivergreen Centre is an environmentally sensitive, low impact office building that provides flexible, high specification, modern office space. It is the most recent addition to Adderstone Group's impressive commercial property portfolio.

The Rivergreen Centre is an environmentally sensitive, low impact office building that provides flexible, high specification, modern office space. It has been hailed for its design and impact and is a former winner of the RICS UK ‘Sustainable Building of the Year’ and has won a RIBA Design Award.

Orginially operating as a serviced office and conference centre, the centre is now home to challenger bank, Atom Bank's head quarters.

The building uses biofuel and innovative design to keep its environmental impact to a minimum and offers a high speed data network with excellent digital connectivity. It's a true example that a building can be a pleasurable place to work, fully up to speed with modern office equipment and still tread softly on the landscape.  

A highlight of the interior structure is the Rammed Earth Wall, which is the central spine of the building and over six metres tall and around 500 millimetres. 

The Rivergreen Centre is located minutes from the centre of Durham and in easy reach of Durham railway station and major road networks. 

 

The Rivergreen Centre

Heating 

Heating is provided by two wood pellet burning boilers and hot water is primarily provided by eight solar panels which lie on the south facing side of the central atrium.

 

Cooling and Ventilation

Other than in the washrooms and kitchen, the building has no mechanical ventilation or air conditioning. Fresh air is provided by passive ventilation system. 

 

Water 

All taps have an aerated stream on water and are P.I.R. operated. Lavatories which are low flush, use harvested rainwater from the roof. 

 

Landscape 


The landscape has been designed to give people inside a genuine 'window to nature'. There are traditional flower meadows, apple and lime trees in the car park and the landscape attracts a large variety of insects, birds and wildlife.
