This project involved the design and build of a new five storey, 45,000ft2 office building to replace the existing headquarters for CAFOD. The form of contract was design and build, JCT 98 with Contractors Design and a BREEAM Rating of Excellent was required and achieved.
The site is situated in Southwark and is a very restricted site, with the main road to the front elevation and adjoining buildings to the sides, requiring party wall awards and agreements.
Key elements of the project involved:
All deliveries and use of the tower crane had to be carefully planned in line with our overall logistics strategy.
Our design team on this project included Black Architecture, who worked with us on our award winning, sustainable head office in Hoddesdon.
CAFOD are a worldwide Catholic charity, that aid and fund through various organisations around the world and are a main supporter for groups like HIV/Aids relief, disasters and emergencies - about 500 organisations in total.
