HBG Construction begins work on £9.5m Redcar PFI Scheme
HBG Construction Ltd is part of a consortium that has been awarded a £9.5 million PFI contract by Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council for the construction and operation over a 25-year period of fully serviced offices and a business centre.
The PFI consortium is led by the Norwich Union Public Private Partnership Fund [NUPPP] and incorporates HBG Construction as both design and build contractor and facilities management contractor for the scheme.
The new council accommodation to be provided in this scheme includes three separate units in different locations in the region. New offices totalling 1,750 sq.m will accommodate the Economy & Environment and Technical Services Department in Redcar, while a further 3,649 sq.m of offices will be built in Guisborough to accommodate the Social Services Department. Finally, a new Business Centre of 1,680 sq.m will provide managed workspace for the start up and establishment of new businesses at South Bank.
Under the PFI contract, each property is to be fitted-out by HBG Construction to meet the council’s requirements and full facilities management services are to be provided by HBG’s FM division for the entire period of the contract.
Architect for HBG Construction is Ryder Company and structural engineer is WSP.
