Midas hits high point on £6.5 million Guildford office scheme
The team behind a major £6.5 million office development in Guildford, Surrey, is celebrating the project reaching its topping out.
In time-honoured tradition, representatives from Midas Construction’s Southern Division and client Investra Developments Ltd held a ceremony on site to mark the three-storey office building reaching its highest point.
The development - to be known as River Works - is located off Mary Road in the centre of the town, close to the County Court and police station and within walking distance of Guildford railway station.
Work has progressed well since the start on site early this year and the project is scheduled to be completed in spring 2019.
Peter Whitmore, Divisional Director for the Southern region for Midas Construction, which is part of the Midas Group, said: “It is great to see the project well and truly taking shape and to be marking this significant construction milestone on site.
“We’re looking forward to pushing ahead now with the construction and finishes and to delivering what will be a high-quality scheme offering an inspirational riverside base for business in central Guildford.”
When complete, River Works will offer up to 29,174 sq ft of flexible work space with on-site parking and terrace areas overlooking the River Wey.
The building will feature a “sky bar” and provide a modern working environment with easy access to the town centre.
Midas is one of the UK's largest independent construction and property services providers. It first established its Southern Division regional office in 2008 in Southampton and has experienced strong growth over recent years.
The company’s strategy is to become the contractor of choice in the areas in which it operates, by developing long-term relationships through the delivery of its vision to be leaders in customer service and performance. It is a strategy which is already showing success with more than 75% of the Group’s projects being carried out on a repeat business basis.
In 2017 Midas announced it was expanding its operations to open a South East Division office in Leatherhead, Surrey.
