BREEAM Good Rating

This project was the design and construction of a three-storey office block with undercroft car parking, situated on an old Seeboard site. Environmental assessments and land remediation works were carried out to remove disused fuel tanks, petrol interceptors and some contaminated land.

Following the formation of a piling mat, the site was CFA piled and three floors of reinforced concrete were constructed. A structural steel frame was erected to form the plant deck and provide support to the roof trusses and second floor roof columns. The majority of the roof was pitched in clay tiles to ensure the building remained in keeping with the local surroundings.

Internally, mechanical and electrical works included the installation of a passenger lift and air conditioning system with heat recovery.
