design & build

Contract: New Head Office
Client: Mendip Rail Ltd
Type: Commercial Design and Build

This new head office was commissioned by the joint venture company of Foster Yeoman and Hanson Aggregates.
Mendip Rail Ltd required a new purpose built head office for more efficient running of their business.
Open plan office area was needed for the scheduling department. Training room and board level manager's offices.
The ground conditions were suspect due to the removal of very large tree's and clay subsoil's.
We had to pile the foundations and install reinforced ring beams.
Speed of construction was imperative so we chose beam and block flooring with timber frame structure as a way to speed up construction. The frame and main roof structure were erected in 5 working days.
We then externally clad the building in masonry and traditionally fitted out the internals.
