AV Dawson Headquarters


A striking full glass frontage for AV Dawson’s new headquarters

Metal Technology Ltd’s glazing systems were installed through approved fabricator, TITAN Facades, for The Staiths – a new state-of-the-art head office for freight logistics specialists AV Dawson Limited, owner and operator of the rebranded Port of Middlesbrough (formerly Port Darlington). Products used were System 17 Curtain Walling with raked heads, System 10-35 Commercial Doors, System 4-35 Vents and System 22 Brise Soleil.

Designed by C.A.Ross Associates and delivered by Brims Construction Limited, the 24,000 sq. ft. office development celebrates both the heritage and future of the port and town, and forms part of a £10 million, 3 year masterplan for AV Dawson’s Port of Middlesbrough facility. The impressive four-storey building boasts views over the River Tees from its rooftop terrace and features open plan office spaces, a modern conferencing facility and meeting area, a gym, private meeting spaces, co-working areas, and training rooms.

The new space is a great resource for the community, with many different organisations continuing to avail of its facilities, and has helped to highlight the vibrant shipping industry in Teesside.
