Project Description

EDF Energy required a new Training and Skills Facility to offer educational and training workshop facilities for EDF apprentices and contractors. In addition, computer terminal facilities were required to permit personnel to be site inducted, offered additional training and site appraised prior to gaining access to the Nuclear Licensed Site.

The building contains three main workshops with adjoining classrooms and training areas. In addition there are two large classrooms as well as three smaller seminar / classroom spaces.

Due to the need for large open spaces and the requirement to achieve adequate robustness against disproportionate collapse (Building Regulation AD –A3 Category 2B Building), a steel frame was adopted. Due to the marginal ground conditions encountered on the site, a reinforced concrete raft foundation sub-structure was adopted.

A message from Thomas Consulting

2021 - New Year, New Office

Here at Thomas Consulting we are on the move….

Exciting times after nearly 20 years in the current office at Friar Street the team are moving to a brighter, bigger accessible office at 21 China Street, Lancaster.  

The building has been part of a development undertaken by JMP Architects at their existing site.

The new office space has access directly off of China Street giving on-site parking for the Team and visiting clients; a rarity in Lancaster city centre.

As soon as COVID-19 Security and Government restrictions permit, we are looking forward to inviting all our associates and clients to enjoy a little cheese and Wine event at our new home.

We will be raising a toast to a healthy, safe and prosperous year for all.
