New headquarters building
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.
