Contractor named for landmark Bradford commercial scheme
Muse, in partnership with Bradford Council, has appointed Caddick Construction to deliver the landmark One City Park office scheme, which will continue the transformation of the heart of Bradford city centre.
The 5,240m2 sustainable development on the former police HQ site is the first high-quality, modern office scheme to be delivered in Bradford city centre for more than 20 years. Muse said it will directly address the need for offices by offering exceptional workspace with adaptable floor plans to accommodate agile working practices.
The five-storey development – rated BREEAM ‘Excellent’ – will also feature new public realm areas around the scheme. The building will connect seamlessly to the multi award-winning City Park with new stepped access and attractive seating areas. It is also within walking distance to cultural assets including City Hall, St George’s Hall and new music venue Bradford Live, which is due to open later this year.
More than 300 jobs will be created throughout the construction with a further 450 jobs based in the building once completed. Enabling works are already underway with construction due to start on site later this month, and the building due to complete by summer 2023.
