Severn Gorge Countryside Trust

Client: Severn Gorge Countryside Trust

We were active members of the Core Group set up to deliver this new office building which was constructed on a green field site at Darby Road, Coalbrookdale under a Project Partnering Agreement. We worked with the Employer to appoint a contractor through a two stage tender process and worked with other members of the Core Group to develop the Price Framework/Agreed Maximum Price and participated in change control and risk management processes throughout the construction period.

The building has a high sustainability specification; it is a timber framed structure using only certified timber with Cedar roof shingles and Larch weatherboard external cladding. Wall and roof insulation is Black Mountain natural sheep’s wool and non petroleum based ‘natural’ paints are used internally.

Winner of Best Commercial Building, Best Innovative / Sustainable Building and Overall Winner in the 2011 Local Authority Building Control Building Excellence Awards for Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin as announced on 16th March 2011.
