The Viridor Office building is phase 1 of a mixed use redevelopment scheme in the centre of Taunton.
The full site straddles both sides of the River Tone, on the old cattle market and lorry park sites. The underlying stratum of the site is river alluvium and deposits to a depth of 9m before suitable founding strata can be found. The foundation solution is driven precast concrete piles to a depth of 10m.
