ONE YEAR IN BEESTON

Prior to our move, the firm had seen itself settled at Clarendon Street in Nottingham for 14 years, having existed in the city since 1993.

Like many other businesses, Directors Graham, David and Matthew made the decision during the Covid-19 pandemic to relocate away from Nottingham City Centre and since July 2021, we have been comfortably settled in our newly acquired premises at Brigade House, Albion Street in Beeston.

The Grade II listed former Mill building was built by Francis Wilkinson in 1892 and at the time was known to be the largest net curtain factory in Europe. the site has been converted to residential apartments and offices. The Beeston Boys Brigade (Nottingham 17th) troop met regularly in the space we now occupy in the early 20th century earning the building its name, Brigade House.

The open-plan layout of the office space has brought everyone in the firm together for the first time and we don’t mind saying that it took a little getting used to!

Thankfully, we are now very comfortable in our new surroundings and have found collaboration and open communication opportunities in this new layout to be a real asset to the company.

Beeston itself is an up-and-coming area that has seen millions of pounds of investment including the refurbishment of the shopping precinct, new and improved public transport connecting the town to the NET tram network, The Arc Cinema, more retailers, cafes and a gym.
