ISG will build an 85,000 sq ft head office building for TPP on a sloping site, which incorporates two levels of under croft car parking facilities. The four-storey, steel frame structure has been designed by Bowman Riley Architects with a frontal, road-side elevation of traditional Yorkshire stone with a pitched tiled roof. The rear façade has a more contemporary design with curtain walling and rain screen cladding panels.

TPP will relocate its operations to the new purpose-built accommodation from its existing offices a few hundred yards down the road.

To minimise columns across the four main floor plates, ISG will install a series of delta beams that span up to 17m within the main office.

Targeting a BREEAM very good environmental performance rating, the office is mostly naturally ventilated, via roof-mounted wind catchers. It will have brise soleil shading panels to regulate solar gain.

Completion is scheduled for spring 2015.

Alan McCarthy-Wyper, managing director of ISG’s construction business, said: “TPP is an extremely successful and fast-growing business that is making a major investment in its core office infrastructure to underpin its continued expansion. Once completed, the company’s new Horsforth headquarters will provide purpose-built accommodation for over 600 staff, with the ingeniously designed, high performance building providing an outstanding working environment and reinforcing TPP’s corporate values.”
