Sustainable Bradford office scheme to support 750 jobs as part of city centre “transformation”
National urban regeneration business, Muse Developments, in partnership with Bradford Council, has appointed Caddick Construction to deliver the landmark One City Park office scheme, which will continue the transformation of the heart of Bradford city centre.
The 56,403 sq ft sustainable development on the former police HQ site, is the first high-quality, modern office scheme to be delivered in Bradford city centre for more than 20 years. It will directly address the need for high-quality offices by offering “exceptional” workspace with adaptable floor plans to accommodate agile working practices.
The five-storey development, rated BREEAM ‘Excellent’, will also feature new public realm areas around the scheme. The building will connect seamlessly to the multi award-winning City Park with new stepped access and seating areas.
It is also within walking distance to cultural assets including City Hall, St George’s Hall and new music venue Bradford Live, which is due to open later this year.
More than 300 jobs will be created throughout the construction with a further 450 jobs based in the building once completed. Enabling works are already underway with construction due to start on site later this month, and the building due to complete by summer 2023.
The development will have strong sustainability credentials, including high-performance glazing to the façades to maximise natural light while reducing solar gain; photovoltaic panels and air source heat pumps to make sure the building operates on renewable energy.
Simon Dew, development director at Muse Developments, added: “We’re very excited to announce this important milestone for One City Park and to be working with Bradford Council and Caddick Construction on this flagship scheme.
“The significance of One City Park can’t be underestimated for Bradford, and we know there’s growing demand from businesses looking to relocate or expand in the city centre.”
Adrian Dobson, managing director for Caddick Construction, added: “This is a high-profile scheme in the heart of Bradford that will have a transformational effect on the city centre. Caddick is delighted to have been chosen as construction partner to deliver on such an important project for Muse, Bradford Council and the city as a whole.”
