WHG Headquarters, Walsall
Client : WHG
Value : £7m (€7.8m)
Social housing landlord Walsall Housing Group chose John Sisk & Son to build its new headquarters. The new office, within walking distance of the town centre, was designed to improve the customer experience by bringing colleagues and services together and enabling long term savings to be made.
Sisk helped WHG’s commitment to supporting its local area by agreeing to employ a guaranteed level of local personnel on the project.
This design and build scheme involved the transformation of a split level brownfield site into a landmark four storey office development.
Enabling works for the scheme required the demolition of an existing building and site clearance prior to starting construction.
The scheme features a curtain wall façade designed to resemble trees within the glazing. Apart from being attractive in itself, the design also provides solar shading to enhance the office environment and reduce cooling costs.
High specification internal finishes associated with architecturally designed external paving and landscaping features provide a focal point and catalyst for the area’s ongoing regeneration.
