Work begins on Blackpool civil service office
Work has started on a new office building, which forms part of the £350M Talbot Gateway regeneration that is transforming the heart of Blackpool town centre.
VINCI Building, nationwide placemaker, Muse, and its partner, Blackpool Council, have started work bringing forward a 20,000m2 highly-sustainable office building for the civil service.
More than 3,000 public servants will relocate to the striking, seven-storey regional hub, when it completes in 2025.
The new offices will generate significant new footfall to the area, boosting trade to local businesses, retailers, restaurants, cafes and leisure facilities, alongside a wealth of new job opportunities for local people.
Leach Structural Steelwork are fabricating, supplying and erecting the steelwork for the project.
Alan McBride, Projects Director at Muse, said: “We’re pleased to appoint VINCI Building and to start on site building this fantastic facility on behalf of Blackpool Council.
“As a business, we’re committed to creating places with purpose for people that offer tangible environmental and social benefits to local communities and are looking forward to seeing the building progress.”
