Stainforth Construction has been contracted to lead work on a £4 million commercial property development in Bradford, which will feature Europe’s largest buildings made out of straw bale.
The company has been selected by Newlands Community Association as lead contractor on the Inspire Bradford Business Park project, which will be built on a site close to Eccleshill Community Hospital and consist of two buildings totalling 2,787 sq m which will contain 14 offices and 14 workspaces.
The Newlands Community Association, an east Bradford-based community organisation, will own and manage the commercial site. It awarded the build contract to Stainforth Construction after a competitive tender process.
Building work will commence later this month and is expected to be completed early next year. The site will also feature a café and digital media centre.
NCA chief executive Tony Holdich said: “The appointment of a contractor brings the delivery of Inspire a step closer and we are delighted a local firm has won the contract. Stainforth Construction has an impressive track record and I am looking forward to them starting work on site.
“Our aspiration for Inspire is to create an work environment of the very highest standard while ensuring that it provides efficient and flexible accommodation to exceed tenants’ requirements.”
