Steel helps to reinvigorate former railway station
More than 12,500m² of Kingspan access flooring is being installed in a new civic headquarters and customer service centre for York Council on the site of a Grade II listed former railway station within the walls of the historic city.
A Kingspan partner contractor is installing particleboard and steel encapsulated panels for the new-build steel framed element of the scheme and areas of the former railway station which are being redeveloped.
The particleboard panels were installed with a finished floor height (FFH) ranging from 60mm to 150mm, and the FFH of the steel encapsulated panels was 250mm.
The new civic headquarters and customer service centre, known as West Offices, will enable York Council to rationalise its offices from 16 to four, providing an estimated saving of £17 million over the next 25 years.
Main contractor for the project is Miller Construction and the developer is York Investors, a team comprising of Buccleuch Property and S Harrison Developments.
