A new 33,000 sq. ft development constructed to house CAT A offices, reception and associated facilities. External works included car parking, as well hard and soft landscaping. The development was successfully handed over on time despite challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Significant challenges overcome by Clegg during the scheme included working through COVID-19 pandemic and operating within a live industrial park. To mitigate the impact of our work, our operatives car park was located 100 metres away from our site. Social distancing, excellent hygiene practices and the hosting and attendance of virtual meetings helped prevent infection spread during the project.
Foundations / Frame / Envelope:
The building has piled foundations, caps and ground beams, a structural steel frame with metal deck upper floors, precast stairs, aluminium glazing, and a brise soleil system.
Building services were provided to shell and core to industry standard for later tenant fit-out by Highways England.
Social Value and Environmental:
The building has achieved BREEAM "Very Good" standard due to its highly energy efficient finish, with solar photo voltaic installations on the roof and a Stormsaver system that recycles storm water from the car park for use in toilet flushing. In addition, the building achieved a high level of air-tightness at 3.4m³/(h.m²)
