TFT Oversees Topping Out Of Cardiff’s Largest Ever Office Development


On Tuesday 12th September, TFT Partner John Newton took part in the topping out ceremony of the 270,000sqft HMRC Government Hub project in Cardiff, signifying promising economic and social growth for the Welsh capital. TFT are project monitoring on behalf of Legal & General Group plc and are proud to see the development reach its top (12th) floor, bringing the scale of the project into perspective. The building represents Wales’ largest ever office development which is to house up to 4000 government staff following projected handover in November 2019.

John says:

I am extremely pleased to be involved and associated with this exemplar project which is being handled and run by a stellar team, namely Rightacres Property and Sir Robert McAlpine, funded and backed by one of the UK’s leading property institutions, Legal and General Group PLC. The development is a real example of “how to construct” in the heart of a vibrant city, the results of which will be felt for years to come in the capital as the centre of town transforms itself into one of the UK’s fastest expanding cities with all the associated economic benefits.

The modern infrastructure is one of 13 new regional hubs being developed for HMRC across the UK.
