Comprehensive ESG retrofit of the Grade II listed Lloyds HQ amphitheater, using the harbour waters to contribute to the buildings cooling.

Canons House was built as a regional headquarters for Lloyds Bank between 1988 and 1991 after the bank took the decision to relocate its retail banking functions to a single site outside of London in 1986. Arup Associates were commissioned as architects.

According to Historic England, the building played an “important role” in the post-industrial regeneration of Bristol’s docks as a thriving recreation and cultural centre. Designed to have a civic presence and with an integrated amphitheatre, it forms one of Bristol’s key public assembly spaces, and is a monumental and distinctive harbourside landmark.

The building was awarded Grade II-listed status by the Government on the advice of Historic England last year, six months after it was put up for sale by Lloyds Bank.
