Greenmarket scheme set to transform Dundee city centre
Working on behalf of main contractor Ogilvie Construction, Hescott Engineering is fabricating, supplying and erecting more than 650t of steelwork for the Greenmarket scheme in Dundee.
Set to reinvigorate a large plot in the city centre, the scheme consists of two steel-framed buildings. Building One is a retail and residential block, while the larger Building Two is a new regional headquarters for BT.
Working within the confines of a very tight site, Hescott Engineering is having to use a variety of lifting options, including a tower crane, two 60t-capacity mobile cranes and variety of MEWPs.
Building Two’s steel frame includes 250t of cellular beams and a large 5.5t plate girder all supplied by Kloeckner Metals UK Westok.
The new BT office, which will be home to around 1,000 staff when it opens in 2024, forms part of Dundee’s £1bn regeneration area.
