Our new workplace reaches big milestone

Construction of our new workplace on Farnborough Road in Clifton is progressing at pace, nine months after the start of the build.

The two-storey building, Clifton Place, is now watertight, and the external insulation and cladding has started to be installed. To mark the occasion, we invited NCHA Board Members for a tour of the new building. 

Callum Gillespie Chair of the Board at NCHA, said “It was great to get on site to see the build progress for Clifton Place. I’m really impressed with the quality and design of the development - it’s really starting to take shape and I’m excited to see it open later in the year”.

Clifton Place will accommodate 200 workspaces, a variety of meeting rooms, a 24-hour call centre, a training facility and a property maintenance depot.

The architectural design is being led by Pelham, and built to Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) excellent standards. This accreditation will demonstrate the quality, performance and sustainable credentials of the building.

Alongside Clifton Place, the new site will offer 56 homes for older people, and a supported housing service. The existing sport and football facilities will remain in use for the community. This mix of residential accommodation, community facilities and office space will be a fantastic place for people to live, work and visit.

The contractor, GEDA Construction are expected to hand over our new workplace in August 2024, with a move-in date later in the year.
