Project Overview

Boho 8 is the latest phase of Middlesbrough’s commercial quarter for the technology and creative sectors. The £2.5m project provides additional space for local companies and is also intended to attract new businesses to the area. The Council carried out a ‘demand survey’ which demonstrated that there were high levels of growth in the sector but no suitable accommodation. The timescales identified meant the Council had to consider alternative construction methods. Modular was selected as a means to deliver contemporary offices that could be in situ in six months to meet demand. Modular specialists M-AR were appointed to deliver the complete project from groundworks to final commissioning. The ambitious project began in August 2020, with the modular buildings being manufactured at M-AR’s offsite facility. Just eight weeks later, four office blocks consisting of 18 individual 49m² modules were completed and installed over a five-day period. Boho 8 delivers innovatively constructed light, bright and inspiring facilities for ambitious creative businesses and achieves excellent EPC Rating of A and air permeability of 4.69 m2/(h.m2) @50 Pa – which will reduce heating requirements and carbon emissions for the lifetime of the buildings.
