This interesting scheme will provide a brand-new office development in Durham City Centre, offering Grade A accommodation with stunning views across Durham.

The development seeks to transform the site of a former industrial unit which has most recently been used as a food bank and charity storage building.

The project comprises the demolition of the existing steel framed building down to ground floor slab level, and the construction of a new 3 storey steel framed building with a slightly larger footprint, over the top.

As the site is close to the East Coast Main Line, sitting at the base of a large embankment that supports the rail line, selecting the right the foundation solution and construction method is critical to the success of the scheme.
