Regatta has submitted a planning application for a new 60,000 sq ft headquarters on the site of its current offices in Mercury Way, Trafford Park.

The new building will provide a base for 250 employees working across the group's Regatta, Craghoppers and Dare2b brands, as well as the UK Hawkshead retail business.

It is expected to be completed by November 2014 and will result in staff relocating from offices across Manchester.

The new headquarters has been designed jointly by consultants from Fletcher-Rae and Space Invader Interior designers, who were appointed following a design competition.

HOW Planning is planning consultant for the project.

Keith Black, managing director of Regatta, said: "With the new headquarters, we aim to create a world-class facility, enabling the very best talent to maximise their capabilities.

"We are creating a unique environment of design studios, meeting spaces and offices in a highly individual design, as we continue to grow our brands across the UK, Europe and worldwide."
