Florence Building

CDD Ltd were appointed to undertake the RC Detailing of the foundations and the ground slab for this project.

The Florence Building was to be a brand new 5-storey 60,546 sq. ft office development in the heart of Basingstoke, Hampshire. With flexible internal floorplates it would offer the lowest cost per workstation in the South East. The interior will be finished to a full Cat A standard including air-conditioning, suspended metal ceilings, lighting and raised floors. A contemporary reception area will feature a double-height glazed atrium space.

Basing View, the location for the Florence Building, is a major town centre business cluster spread over 65 acres and is home to a range of national and international organisations. The site was also to provide secure parking for 203 cars, electric car charge points and 48 secure and covered cycle spaces.

This was a client we’d already worked with over a long period of time, which always helps as construction by default can bring many unexpected challenges, plus we are always mindful of the practicalities of our part in the process. We’re always considerate of the surroundings we’re working in and plan for minimum disruption.
