In 2013 Alec French Architects and PLACEmaking formed ‘ADAPT’, a multi-skilled collection of Bristol based specialist workplace consultants and designers, architects and engineers to undertake Bristol City Council’s ‘Bristol Workplace Programme’ (BWP).

The ADAPT team led by Alec French and PLACEmaking were appointed by Bristol City Council to help deliver the Council’s new Workplace Programme which aims to secure financial savings of £120m over the next 25 years.  The AFA team includes Arups, Gardiner and Theobald and Donald Insall Associates.

The fit-out and refurbishment of 100 Temple Street, Bristol delivers the first significant phase of the Council’s Workplace Programme which provides the Council with a modern working environment along with a series of staff facilities and green initiatives within the existing building.

The works were extended to include a new Citizen Service Point (CSP) which will support citizens to access new on line services and provide a high quality face to face service for those with complex needs and sensitive enquiries with the majority of council services.
