Situated adjacent to the A3, the building’s structural frame measures 112m-long x 43.8-wide and gains its stability from concrete cores. Open-plan offices are created on all floors with long span beams, with the longest span measuring 15.2m-long.
Overall, Caunton erected 5,174 individual steel pieces for the project, with the heaviest member weighing 13.8t.
The building, which will be ready for occupation by the end of 2020, comprises offices, meeting and conference rooms, and canteen facilities.
Winvic Construction Director Naim Basha commented: “Our relationship with Lidl has been made even stronger over the past year after securing the contract to construct their new head office, as well as completing two regional distribution centres.
“We have made excellent progress on this scheme and the whole Winvic team, which not only includes our dedicated staff, but suppliers and consultants, is proud to reach this important steel frame completion milestone. We’re now almost halfway through the complex project and the office’s fully glazed external envelope is one of the next transformative areas of work, when the exterior design really begins to come to life.”
