Bruntwood Works’ in-house fit out contractor CubicWorks has begun the refurbishment of Marsland House in Sale.
The refurbishment project will provide new communal areas throughout the building and overhaul the main reception. Features will include the installation of a leafy “welcome wall” art feature to enhance the arrival experience.
Bruntwood Works said that the project follows increased demand from businesses for local offices, alongside their city centre workspaces, with more companies seeking a hub and spoke solution that incorporates a city centre HQ and a geographically distributed network of offices in the surrounding suburbs.
The project is to complement the recently refurbished first floor which features an exposed scheme, with the ceiling and fixtures stripped back to provide a modern, industrial look and add additional ceiling height – the first space of its kind in Sale.
Marsland House is located opposite the Brooklands Metrolink stop and is already home to businesses including Jarvis Insolvency, Stackhouse Poland and Röhlig Logistics.
Andrew Cooke, strategic director of Bruntwood Works, said: “We’re really seeing an uptick in demand from businesses looking to bring the workspace closer to home, and there are many benefits of having a city centre ‘hub’ alongside town centre ‘spoke’ locations.
“Shorter travel time allows employees to spend more time with friends and family while reducing their carbon footprint, and businesses can also enjoy more drop-in spaces and social time, with the opportunity to boost the local economy. Marsland House is the perfect example of this ‘hub and spoke’ model.”
Completion is due in spring 2021.
