Boho X is a bold, contemporary style new building, which will provide 60,000 sq ft of Grade A offices aimed at businesses in Teesside’s expanding digital sector.
Located on Lower Gosford Street in the ‘Boho-zone’ – home to the town’s digital sector – the building comprises two blocks of five and six storeys connected by a tower. The building will have a lecture space and café and a rooftop swimming pool, gym and bar. The landscaping scheme also includes an urban orchard.
Raised Floor Solutions has been appointed by the main contractor on the project, long term client Galliford Try. The contract will be fulfilled by RFS’s steel decking contractor division, Metal Deck.

About Kingspan MD60 Steel Decking
Multideck MD60 is a 60mm trapezoidal metal decking profile and one of the most frequently specified floor decks in the market. It is structurally efficient and provides excellent composite action between steel and concrete to maximise load carrying performance and provide an unpropped span width of up to 4.5m.
Its unique profile means that Multideck MD60 requires up to 10% less concrete than other trapezoidal metal decking profiles and over 20% less concrete compared with common re-entrant profiles.
