VolkerFitzpatrick bags £23m contract

VolkerFitzpatrick has bagged a ВЈ23m contract to build new council offices for Staffordshire County Council.

The four-storey building brings together 17 council offices from across the town and construction involves a reinforced concrete frame cast in-situ and includes biomass boilers and up-flow ventilation.

Leader of Staffordshire County Council Philip Atkins said the winning tender from VolkerFitzpatrick reduced estimated construction costs by ВЈ5 million.

He added: “It will also deliver efficient accommodation that will provide the county council and the county’s taxpayers with annual savings of around £250,000 per year. This compares to an annual cost of £500,000 for the proposals we inherited in June.”

The job will start on site before the end of the year and is expected to take 18 months.
