Construction firm announced for the first building at IFC Jersey

Jersey Development Company (JDC) has agreed and signed terms with local construction firm Camerons to construct the first building at the International Finance Centre, Jersey.

IFC 1 will provide 68,000 sq.ft. (6,300 sq.m.) of Grade A office space over six floors with a basement providing 33 car parking spaces and 72 bicycle spaces. The building will be situated in a prominent position on the corner of the Esplanade and Castle Street. The civic space surrounding the building will feature a piazza to its north and part of the southern elevation will overlook a new public square that will be delivered with the construction of the second building.

The building will be delivered to a CAT A specification with raised access flooring, lighting and air-conditioning allowing tenants to fit out space for their own requirements.

The former Esplanade car park site will become IFC Jersey and create 470,000 sq.ft. (43,665 sq.m.) of prestigious office space across six standalone buildings with private car parking spaces beneath the buildings and 520 public car parking spaces on three levels below a public park. Construction is split into phases and will be delivered on a building basis in response to demand.

The development will directly benefit the local economy as Camerons and many of its sub-contractors are local companies and therefore it is anticipated there will be many employment opportunities in a varied field of positions from site management to trade operatives and apprentices.

Work will commence on site once a sufficient level of pre-let is secured .
