Adrian Tottey, managing director of Create Construction said: “It is fantastic that we have reached the topping out stage on this project. The project has not been without its constraints due to the tight footprint and the building’s size within its city centre location.

“With space being at a premium, we have worked hard with the Highways Agency to enable us to make progress - with regular dialogue with our local stakeholders and neighbours being the key.”
