Workspace Design & Build announces record £10m turnover


Tech office contractor Workspace Design & Build has recorded a record turnover of £10 million following a raft of new work in Liverpool, Leeds, Birmingham and Manchester.

Based in Bruntwood’s Manchester One building, the company has recently made ventures into the industrial sector, as well as sustaining commercial sector projects.

It recently completed the 5,500 sq ft fit out for DealTrak at Leeds Dock, working with project manager OBI Property transforming the former Google building into the motor finance and insurance company’s new headquarters.

Workspace D&B has also been reappointed by award-winning influencer marketing business Social Chain to deliver the third phase fit-out of its Manchester base.

Managing director Russell Davis said: “The property sector is still booming and it’s great to see such positive returns across the business.

“There is a great deal of work for us to capitalise upon while continuing to expand our portfolio across multiple sectors.

“To support our growth and further develop our lofty ambitions, we have recently bolstered our Manchester team with the appointment of two new team members.

“Lydia Richardson joined the team a month ago undertaking the role of administrator and Ben Smith will be joining as project manager.

“We are still looking to grow the team and are actively looking for three positions.”

The firm has been appointed by Hallam Read and CSB to deliver a £1m 25,000 sq ft Category A refurbishment in Nottingham, bringing an old Natwest call centre building back onto the market.

It recently completed a £1m refurbishment in Logistics Business Park in Bolton.

Davis added: “The CAT B refurbishment of Whistl’s depot in Bolton is a great project for us.

“This is the first warehouse scheme we have completed demonstrating our diverse range of clients and contributing to our growing portfolio of work.

“When completing this project, time was of the essence.

“The scheme took 12 weeks to complete and we were successful in delivering a full refurbishment of the warehouse complete with standalone office rooms in time for the installation of the mail and parcel sortation machinery and equipment.

“The team thoroughly enjoyed working on a project that was so different from our usual spectrum of work and we look forward to continuing our expansion across the market.”
