A New Grade A Office Building on Basing View

Work to redevelop the former Scott House site as a new 60,535 sq ft office building is moving forward with enabling works following completion of the demolition. Once the work is complete, the site will be handed over to Abstract Securities’ contractors and construction is scheduled to begin in spring next year, with completion targeted for spring 2018.

This new office, The Florence Building, is an exciting step forward in the redevelopment of Basing View and will bring new companies to the business park, creating more jobs and more opportunities for both local businesses and residents.

At 60,000 sq ft and offering office accommodation spread over ground and four upper floors, it will offer flexible, virtually column-free floor plates from approximately 12,000 sq ft and will include 203 car parking spaces. The building will target a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ environmental standard and an EPC Rating of A.
