Client: Allied Construction Services Ltd & VQ Construction
Name of Development: Allied House / VQ House
Project Start / Completion dates: March 2014 – Nov 2014
VQ Construction successfully took on the role of Main Contractor for the VQ House/Allied House project, which entailed the concurrent construction of 2 neighbouring high-quality office headquarters, including attached warehouse space and external yard storage in Hillington, Glasgow.
Both of the completed buildings are 2 storey structures and have combined internal floor areas amounting to approximately 18,000 sq ft. Adjacent to the site you will find the main railway line, which provided an additional complexity and more regulation to deliver the site preparation, groundworks, and the construction phase. VQ Construction undertook all of the design and building work that came with this project and you can view the completed new build below.
All of the ground work and new build work was carried out by ourselves and this includes the steel portal frame assembly and the roofing, windows, doors, and elevators. We also undertook the Kingspan cladding, service connections and the external landscaping surrounding the buildings.
The internal work was also carried out by VQ Construction and this involved creating glazed screens to form the office, meeting and conference facilities, all staff canteen work and welfare facilities, and open plan office space. Furthermore, we also created suspended ceilings with featured sound proof barriers, stud partitioning, and raised access flooring. A Pac access system was installed throughout the building, along with heating, decorations, tiling, floor covering, and lighting.
Each of the warehouse elements was fitted out with bespoke racking systems in line with the respective end user’s requirements. For the specialist mechanical and electrical works, this was undertaken by our nominated M&E specialist contractor.
