Project Information

The former Local Authority Office site was reconstructed to develop Centenary Square; it has a total of three floors, and is constructed using traditional construction methods. Foundations consist of driven steel tubular piles, concrete cast in situ ground beams, brick and block work cavity walls and pre-cast concrete floors on all levels.

The roof finish is a mixture of metal standing seam to the sloped area and single ply membrane to the flat roof areas. The project met Lifetime Homes standards, achieving a Code for Sustainable Homes Level 3+.

The project was delivered in a BIM environment and utilised lean construction techniques which assisted in achieving a total of 80% of waste being diverted from landfill.
