Office Electrics - Production Facility, Wakefield

Design & Build

This scheme comprised construction of a new advanced manufacturing facility, offices and research and design premises for Office Electrics.


The building’s structural frame comprises two portal frames forming the main office and manufacturing area, with a steel frame entrance. The building’s exterior was completed by hardwood veneers and timbers used on adjacent buildings to ensure consistency of appearance.

Due to the nature of the engineering activities to be undertaken in the new building, an acoustic strategy was developed to meet BCO guidance and compliance with the Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005.


External works included a service yard, car parks, hard and soft landscaping and minor highways works.
