Construction work has now started on Cormorant House in Huddersfield, as ground works commence on-site.
Enabling works to uphold the face of the wall supporting Manchester Road are in progress and will be completed within two weeks.
Construction of the permanent access road is well advanced, facilitating the removal of the temporary site access which currently encroaches onto the footprint of Cormorant House.
Elsewhere on site, the groundworks are due to begin this week in preparation for work on the piling mat to commence on January 23.
The contracts are in place for the structural steel, with some 35% already manufactured and all 225 tonnes of structural steel due to be procured and delivered to the fabricator by the end of January.
As well as securing the steel for the project, contracts have also been agreed for the insitu reinforced concrete floors and the mast climbers, providing access to the elevations and for the piling.
Currently, the contracts for the lifts and mechanical and electrical services are being negotiated but are due to be concluded in the coming weeks.
All architectural details are completed up to the construction phase and the team involved are co-ordinating with other areas of the build including mechanical & electrical and structural engineering works.
Following the sell-out success of Kingfisher House, demand for Cormorant House has been extremely high.
Offering a 9% NET rental return for 5 years, this is an excellent opportunity to capitalise on Huddersfield’s buoyant student population.
