Following extensive negotiation and Value Engineering Sessions, Howard Civil Engineering were awarded the groundworks and structures package for the £20million project to build TPP’s new head office in Horsforth, Leeds.
The project sees ISG construct an 85,000 sq ft head office building for TPP on a sloping site, which incorporates two levels of under croft car parking facilities.
A key feature of the new building is the virtual absence of columns across the four main floor plates, with ISG installing a series of delta beams which span up to 17m within the main office areas to provide uninterrupted sight lines from front to rear. At ground floor level, TPP’s new headquarters will boast a high specification main reception area with a double height, light filled atrium, and a combination of cellular and open plan office accommodation to the rear of the building.
The project represents Howards first project in Partnership with ISG
“Neither ISG or I had worked with Howard’s before this venture , but I feel our leap of faith has been rewarded. The job at TPP has been managed very well and programme dates have been carefully managed between both parties throughout, the quality of their work coupled with their excellent safety standards make them an outstanding partner”
