Construction Enquirer recently announced that ISG has secured a project to deliver brand new headquarters for high street retailer TJX Europe, the operator of the TK Maxx and Homesense chains.
According to the piece, the new building will form the centrepiece of a new urban campus opposite Watford Junction station in the UK.
The project is understood to be worth around £70 million, with main building work set to start next year.
The 12-storey steel frame structure features a central concrete core, which will be formed using an automated jump form system, with the concrete being exposed throughout the building as a feature element.
The striking building features a unitised glazed façade and incorporates a number of roof terraces, complete with green biophilic walls and is designed to comply with a high level of environmental certification.
Encompassing circa 210,000 sq ft of space, the building features majority open plan office accommodation, with a large double-height atrium reception space and extensive staff amenities.
The building includes a range of feature staircases and lightwells to maximise incoming natural daylight, and also boasts a multi-use auditorium space.
The new office will link two other existing buildings at the north end of Clarendon Road, creating a gateway into Watford, and will support wider regeneration plans for Watford Junction.
Steven McGee, managing director for ISG’s Southern region, commented: “This major scheme will significantly enhance the built environment at a key gateway into Watford, with a striking design that raises the bar for future development in the town centre.”
