GVA to move from Fountain Street

GVA will relocate its 150-strong Manchester office to PRUPIM's Norfolk House next spring from its current base in Fountain Street.

The firm signed a 10-year commitment on 15,750 sq ft across one-and-a-half floors at the office in Norfolk Street.

GVA is currently spread across four floors at 81 Fountain Street, its home for the past 15 years. The building was developed by Amec Developments and is owned by the Duchy of Lancaster.

Mark Rawstron, regional senior director, said: "There were a number of options available to us within the city and after careful consideration we decided that Norfolk House met both our specific occupational requirements and our desire to remain within the cities prime commercial core. The quality of the refurbishment within the building offers us a platform to create what we believe will be one of the best working environments within the city. The move very much reflects our non-ego-driven approach to business and means that our operating costs will not increase. Something we consider to be a first rate achievement in the current climate.

"Having all staff on the same floor will allow us to be more flexible and creative in the way we use the space and we have some exciting plans to create a separate reception and meeting room suite of the highest quality and design for our new Manchester home."

PRUPIM refurbished the five-storey Norfolk House recently with a new reception, communal areas and open plan office floors.
