United Utilities admin centre bound for Lingley Mere
United Utilities is to locate its new shared service centre at Lingley Mere, the business park it co-owns with Muse Developments in Warrington.
UU, the UK's largest operator of water and waste-water networks, will locate its administrative division at the purpose built centre, which comprises 46,682 sq ft.
The joint venture partners are expected to start on site later this month with practical completion anticipated in March 2009.
Lingley Mere, which is located off junction 8 of the M62, currently provides 380,000 sq ft of office accommodation. The park, which is set within 100 acres of parkland aims to attract further blue chip companies to the area with a further 40 acres available for development.
Phil Mayall, senior development surveyor at Muse Developments, said: "United Utilities' decision to locate its shared service centre at Lingley Mere represents another vote of confidence in the business park. As one of region's major employers it is a welcome addition to the growing number of businesses choosing to locate at the park."
