Structural steelwork installation at UK Hydrographic Office

Our latest installation video features the structural steelwork installation at the new UK Hydrographic Office in Taunton, where Taunton Fabrications worked with BAM Construction, AHR Architects and Hydrock to deliver a 120 ton structural canopy.

Construction work began in May 2017 following the demolition of a number of surplus buildings and the existing car park. The new modern three storey office building is designed to accommodate 700 desks in open plan arrangement with flexible floor plates with extensive meeting, breakout and collaboration spaces. Taunton Fabrications were delighted to have been awarded the structural steelwork package for this project, where we designed and manufactured the impressive steel structure, which was manufactured using 120 tonnes of mild steel, and comprised over 1,100 individual beams and 4,000 profile plates.

The new UK Hydrographic Office is due to open in the spring of 2019.
