One Friargate is the new HQ for Coventry City Council and is the first of 14 new office buildings providing Coventry with up to 2,350,000 sq ft of Grade A office space. A second office building at Friargate received planning consent earlier this year. The dismantling of the largest tower crane was completed last weekend and signals the end of the main construction phase. Work to apply the glazing is also nearing completion and the internal ‘fitting-out’ is well underway. The building was designed by renowned architects Allies and Morrison and is on schedule for completion by next summer. Picture courtesy of Dr Pepper.
