Cheshire firm nabs £11.5m Harrogate Council offices Ι Construction Enquirer

  • Warrington-based Harry Fairclough Construction has beaten rival national contractors to secure the job to build new civic offices for Harrogate Council.
  • The new council offices will be built at Knapping Mount, a brownfield site originally earmarked for housing, which councillors approved planning permission for back in March.
  • The existing building at Crescent Gardens is being sold to developers to help finance the project, which will see five council offices rationalised into one site.
  • London architect  Farrell & Clark designed the civic building and offices to achieve BREEAM Very Good rating.
  • The £30m turnover contractor nabbed the job with a £11.5m bid against Interserve’s Yorkshire office, Graham Construction and McLaughlin & Harvey.
