CENTRE North East, the tallest building in Middlesbrough, is undergoing further refurbishment by its landlord Commercial Estates Group.
Silverstone Building Consultancy has been appointed as CDM-C (Construction Design Management Co-ordinator) on the latest phase of construction on behalf of the landlord, which entails the full refurbishment of the two top floors of the 17-storey office building.
Richard Farrey, director at Silverstone, said: ‘Since our client’s acquisition of Centre North East in August 2010 we have assisted them as CDM Co-ordinator on the refurbishment of a number of floors.
“The current refurbishment work includes a complete strip out of two floors of office space and a full refurbishment tailored to the needs of a new incoming tenant, Foster Wheeler Energy Limited.
“Our role as CDM Co-ordinator ensures the client meets the health and safety needs of those involved in the construction work as required by law.”
Centre North East is a landmark town centre office building offering open plan offices around an inner core which allows for the flexible use of space.
Commercial Estates has already extensively refurbished internal areas including a new reception and the 15th floor.
Farrey added: “Over the past year we have seen a trend for office refurbishments in central locations where landlords have recognised the need to upgrade office space in order to secure new tenants.”
