Globe completes Golden Gates HQ

Globe Construction has finished work on a 24,000 sq ft headquarter building for Golden Gates Housing Trust in Warrington town centre.

Designed by the Fairhursts Design Group and developed on a brownfield site next to Bank Park, the £3m project saw the construction of a three storey office block, which will be home to 180 GGHT staff previously located at Bank House on Sankey Street.

The wider project team includes Watts Group acting as employer's agent, Scott Hughes as structural engineer, King Associates for M&E, Walker Sime as quantity surveyor and the CDMC is also being provided by Watts Group.

Rupert Barron, director of real estate advisors Colliers International in Manchester, identified and acquired the site of the new headquarters building from Warrington Council on behalf of Golden Gates Housing Trust, and assisted in the establishment of the design and procurement team and the planning process.

Ian Threadgold, director of Globe Construction, said: "This is the first phase of a much wider regeneration plan for the Bank Park area and we look forward to seeing further development over the coming years. Seeing the client take occupation of the building has been great and we are proud to have been a part of the official opening, which has welcomed staff, the Council and the public onto the completed site for the first time."

Roy Smith, chair of Golden Gate Housing Trust, said: "The Trust is committed to Warrington and its communities. The development of the new building has helped create jobs and put money back into the local economy."
