A new visitor center at Stonehenge proves to be a beacon of advanced construction design and technology - from the stunning canopy roof down to the pipework infrastructure. At 2km to the west of the stone circle, out of sight of the monument, the new visitor center is designed to sit lightly on the rolling landscape of the Salisbury Plain, perfectly immersed by its historical environment.
One of the biggest concerns for this project was minimizing environmental disturbance, while securing an efficient, and sustainable heat supply – so also the heat loss of the selected pipe works played an important role in the context of optimizing energy efficiency in a low carbon environment. The laying of the pipes could be closely controlled, which was necessary for the rich archaeology associated with the site.
