New office complex for Waveney District Council and Suffolk County Council to be built in Lowestoft
Well-known building company Kier Construction has started working on a scheme for a new office complex for Waveney District Council and Suffolk County Council in Lowestoft, a news report in the local media has revealed.
Construction work will take just over a year before a handover in March 2015 ahead of occupation. The build involves the construction of a brand new two and three-storey building, complete with conference rooms and public café on the ground floor, workstation areas to the upper floors and an external terrace area.
Building a single complex for the local authorities will actually save taxpayers money on the long run, since the new building on Riverside Road will reduce energy and maintenance costs for the two councils and is part of a wider accommodation programme, which will also bring staff from both councils together at a redeveloped customer service centre in the heart of the town. As a result of this move, the cost to taxpayers will drop by up to £3m across the next 10 years.
Since we’re talking about a building complex designed specifically to host local government authorities, the need for a solid and reliable access control system becomes quite stringent, and this is specifically where Access Control UK will be able to put its experience to very good use.
