Brims Construction were appointed by Middlesbrough based freight logistics specialists AV Dawson Limited in 2020, to construct a new four storey office building. The new state-of-the-art head office facility is based at its Port of Middlesbrough site. The new 24,000 sq. ft. office development forms part of a £10 million, 3 year masterplan recently announced for its rebranded Port of Middlesbrough facility.
The new office has been built in the exact location of the original Port of Middlesbrough. During the excavation the sandstone foundations that supported one of the first quays have been discovered. Some of these foundations, which date back to 1838, will be preserved and displayed at the new offices.
The building has been designed with full glass frontage and rooftop terraces with views over the River Tees, whilst the interiors feature open plan office spaces with colleague break out areas, a gym, private meeting spaces, co-working areas, and training rooms. This level will incorporate a modern, state-of-the-art conferencing facility and meeting area, with capacity to seat up to 130 guests. The remainder of the top floor will be reserved for a large colleague entertainment area with music room, games area, kitchen, bar and relaxation spaces. Both areas will open on to two large terraces incorporating outdoor entertainment spaces with panoramic views across Middlesbrough and the River Tees.
