Riverside Offices Lowestoft

A 35,000 sq ft purpose built office development which brings together shared public sector services for Suffolk County Council (SCC) and Waveney District Council (WDC).

The Riverside Offices Lowestoft project allows both councils to demonstrate efficiency and sustainability in providing rationalised offices, improved and consolidated public services, case conferencing and the rationalisation of training, conference, meeting and council chamber facilities.

A landmark building in Lowestoft, the building is conceived to be low energy and efficient with low carbon emissions and low running costs. An integrated landscape scheme combining parking facilities for vehicles, motorcycles and cycles will be provided in a sustainable setting.

Riverside Offices Lowestoft demonstrate good quality 21st century office space, representing good value and targeting an ‘A’ rated EPC.

 

The three storey building, constructed by Kier, features conference room facilities and public café on the ground floor, with workstation areas on the upper floors.

The new building will reduce energy and maintenance costs for the two councils and is part of a wider £13.6 million accommodation programme, which is estimated to cut the councils’ carbon emissions in the town by up to 70%.

Client Testimonial

“We are absolutely delighted that we will shortly be moving in to Riverside as part of a programme that has delivered a vital new building on time and on budget. This is the ideal solution, providing the necessary accommodation for our staff while also protecting the services that our local community wants and depends on.”

Colin Law Leader of Waveney District Council

“The Riverside Road scheme is a key programme for the regeneration of south Lowestoft and Lake Lothing, breathing new life in to a previously neglected part of the town. It will act as a genuine catalyst for 
growth, taking its place in wide-ranging and exciting plans to bring 
jobs, housing and prosperity to Lowestoft."
