The first unit of this 7-unit project for British Airways Pension Fund has been completed and part building control sign off has been achieved. Finish is to a high standard in this unit which will act as a bench mark for the remaining units. The tenant for this unit is very happy with the standard and has commenced their fit out works this week under an early access agreement with the contractor.
The BREEAM design stage certificate has been awarded and the team are making good progress towards the post-construction submission. All utilities are live and connected with testing and commissioning underway.
As part of the planning obligations, the contractor, Marbank, have completed an employment and skills plan which has involved a partnership with the local schools and colleges who have been offered training and employment on this project. Through this, some of the participants have gone on to be offered internships and jobs within the various trades.
