Northgate House, Halifax

MEP Trade Package design and installation

Following the successful delivery of Phase One of the Northgate House redevelopment, KNG were appointed as the MEP Design and Build Trade Package Contractor in October 2020.

Continuing the redevelopment of this concrete framed building with the integration of new mechanical ventilation services including Hybrid VRF units within a narrow ceiling void presented design coordination challenges.

The four floors of office accommodation included the provision of three new lifts including an extension through the existing roof structure for access to the new roof mounted plant and equipment.

The works also included a new lower ground substation whilst maintaining services to the newly opened 6th form college. The retail units on the ground floor are to be presented for future tenant fit out.

The redevelopment included the creation of a new stair core and circulation area, a new reception and entrance including a newly formed atrium to the first floor and feature lighting to the courtyard. In addition to the standard office requirements, the contract also included several specialised tenant fit out requirements for immediate occupation.
