Impressive timeline shows progress of £52 million office scheme at Thorpe Park Leeds

Construction is progressing apace to deliver the next state of the art offices at Thorpe Park Leeds.   Click the here to see our timeline that captures ground works to steel works in just over one minute for this impressive £52 million, 133,118 sq ft building, that is pre-let to leading credit management company, Lowell in a ground-breaking deal for the region.

Scarborough Group International (SGI) expects to complete the impressive headquarters by September 2022, bringing around 1500 people to work at Thorpe Park Leeds.  The Park is already home to over 100 businesses employing around 5,500 people and continues to attract growth companies as the North’s largest out of town business destination.

GMI Construction is the main contractor for the building which extends over seven floors with two levels of underground podium parking and amenity below.  Around 1,750 tonnes of hot rolled steel, 5,000 cubic meters of concrete and over 62,000 metres of wiring are being used for the project.  Approximately 56,000 cubic meters of bulk earth has been excavated and redistributed across the site, saving the need for 7,000 lorry loads to leave the site, reducing the need for 14,000 vehicle movements. This not only helps to increase efficiency but ultimately helps to reduce the overall environmental and carbon impact of the project.  The public realm is perhaps one of the most important considerations within the design of the building, introducing new green spaces to support local wildlife habitat.
