With completion close our new Business Centres are looking good!
Construction started back in December 2012 to expand the business facilities at Victoria. Victoria Advent House & Victoria Beacon Place are due for completion in October and watching the buildings rise from the ground over the last few months has been fascinating.
The weather hasn’t always been kind with heavy rain and strong winds slowing down the progress at times but the project has still managed to stay on schedule. When you see the architect’s drawings and the floor plans it is sometimes difficult to get a sense of space and size so it has been great to be able to walk around the buildings with the plans in hand (compulsory hard hat and high vis jackets required!)
One of the pleasant surprises is the beautiful countryside views from the upper floors, not that we are encouraging gazing out of the windows during work time!
Our new office building have been designed to be as environmentally aware and energy efficient as possible. The offices have both designed to achieve BREEAM ‘Excellent’ standard (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method ) which is recognised for low environmental impact buildings, helping to reduce running costs and improve working environment. Both buildings will also benefit from low energy biomass space heating significantly reducing carbon emissions.
Over last couple of weeks most of the work has been on the inside of the buildings, especially in Advent House, which now has most of the internal walls in place creating the office spaces, rest areas, breakout spaces and corridors.
Work is also continuing outside with the tarmac now laid for the car parking spaces at the front of the building. Construction has also begun on the new road that will also lead through to the larger car parking area at the back of the buildings.
With space already reserved and lots more enquiries in progress we are looking forward to welcoming new Tenants to Advent House & Beacon Place in October. Reserve your space now!
