ISG has secured a contract to construct The Phoenix Partnership’s (TPP) new headquarters in Horsforth, Leeds, UK.

As per the deal, ISG will construct a 85,000ft² head office building on a sloping site, which houses two levels of under croft car parking facilities.

Designed by Bowman Riley Architects, the four-storey, steel frame structure has a frontal, road-side elevation of traditional Yorkshire stone with a pitched tiled roof.

The rear façade design features curtain walling and rain screen cladding panels.

ISG will install a series of delta beams that span up to 17m within the main office to minimise columns across the four main floor plates.

The new headquarters will feature a main reception area at ground floor level and include a combination of cellular and open plan office accommodation to the rear of the building.

The contract also requires ISG to carry out landscaping works, install retaining gabion wall structures and create further car parking.

Sustainable features of the building include brise soleil shading panels to regulate solar gain, said the company.

ISG construction business managing director Alan McCarthy-Wyper said, "Once completed, the company’s new Horsforth headquarters will provide purpose-built accommodation for over 600 staff, with the ingeniously designed, high-performance building providing an outstanding working environment and reinforcing TPP’s corporate values."

Scheduled for completion in early 2015, the facility is anticipated to secure a BREEAM very good environmental performance rating.

TPP will relocate its operations to the new headquarters from its existing offices.
