Economic Zone World appointed McLaren to construct a major new headquarter office and workshop facility for General Electric Oil & Gas.
The project consists of around 5,000 sqm of basement car parking and plant areas, a 6,000 sqm three storey reinforced concrete frame office building and over 7,500 sqm of steel frame warehouse divided into four sections for the group’s various manufacturing divisions.
Due to site restrictions, the basement was supported using a central vertical king post shoring system. Dewatering systems were also required to provide reductions in ground water levels.
The project also included all associated external works and following the successful completion of the base-build McLaren was subsequently awarded the contract for the substantial fit out.
The building was designed to Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) Silver Certification but the completed facility achieved LEED Gold.
