Trilandium were awarded the contract to build an office park in the affluent district of Humberston, Grimsby. For a private client.
The project consisted of 8 individual office of 2500 sq ft each build over the ground and first floors. The scheme was traditional in design as the client felt that the market required a product that was not too modern. Additional to this there was a large amount of S278 highways improvement to allow access onto the development. This consisted of road widening and new traffic calming measures. Due to the project being on a major arterial road into Grimsby. The work was often done out of hours to keep existing traffic flows working.
The scheme itself was built using more traditional building methods and not on a steel frame. This consisted of masonry and brick walls to inner and our skins, a traditional tiles roof using slate and timber sliding sash windows. The end result provides a majestic looking scheme that whilst not contemporary, will ultimately last the test of time as the design has a Georgian feel with the external ground floor Monocouche Georgian Render and pilastered porticos to the front doors.
Below Ground due to the proximity to the sea, Trilandium fitted 2 large water tanks to aid the dispersion of ground water. This was taken as an alternative to fitting the cheaper and less effective crates that can often be beset with maintenance problems. The decision to fit these was a choice made by Trilandium, despite the Contract being let on a D&B basis where crates could have been used.
Trilandium always believe it is important that we do the job right, not just cheaply and this solution too dealing with the ground water is another example of what we do with our clients.
The scheme whilst not a traditional Trilandium project, provides a good example of Trilandiums willingness to take on different types of projects and that the focus is always on quality.
