One Friargate is the first building in the Friargate masterplan to be constructed. Coventry City Council will occupy nine floors and the Financial Ombudsman Service will occupy the remaining two from winter 2017. The building offers some of the region’s most modern office space.
It is mostly open plan and has huddle stations and acoustic booths. The Council and Financial Ombudsman Service will share the swish ground floor, benefittingf rom its conference room coffee shop facilities.
The stunning red-brick façade has been designed to reflect the traditional materials used in some of Coventry’s finest buildings, including Coventry Cathedral, with the building already a prominent part of the city’s skyline.
An Iconic Setting
Looking out on the new tree-lined Station Square Boulevard, One Friargate will be amongst the first sights to welcome visitors to Coventry. Standing at 12-storeys tall and with brickwork matching traditional local materials, One Friargate is a striking addition to the city’s skyline.
With Coventry train station on its doorstep, and access to the National Motorway Network easy and quick, One Friargate is perfectly positioned to support Coventry City Council as it moves forward.
The building is being delivered by contractor Bowmer & Kirkland. For live updates on the construction process visit the progress pages where you can view our time lapse camera and photo gallery.
