HQ overhaul underway for property experts Towngate

A comprehensive refurbishment has begun to revitalise Woodvale House, the Brighouse base of commercial and industrial lettings specialist Towngate PLC.

The construction of the offices was originally completed by the property experts in the early nineties, when it became their headquarters. However, the current revamp is the first overhaul of the 9,500 sqft property in a significant number of years.

The flagship building on Woodvale Road will benefit from a refurbishment of the lobby and stairs area, new toilet and shower facilities, plus full redecoration – including new carpets, balustrades, handrails and doors. Vital infrastructural repairs and the installation of a shared cycle shed will also take place.

With the support of fit-out experts Desk Office Interiors, Towngate’s own office space will additionally benefit from a refreshed reception area and team breakout room.

Commenting on the unfolding renovations, Towngate’s marketing manager Julia Ford said: “The HQ makeover has been in the pipeline for a while, but with our growing site portfolio and influx of new tenants across our estates, our priority has naturally been our clients’ spaces. Our own project has therefore taken a while to get off the ground.

“However, Woodvale House itself is an extension of our own branding, so whilst we’ve largely focused our time and energy on developing properties elsewhere up until now, investing some care and attention into our own premises is long overdue. All last-minute design decisions have now been ironed out, and we will be excited to see the final result after months of planning and preparation.”

The property specialists’ flagship building is currently shared with structural engineering tenants JNP Group and new leaseholders Digital High Street. All occupants will be remaining on-site throughout the renovation, which is expected to be completed in mid-September.

The refurbishment closely follows the announcement of four new occupancies across the firm’s Leeds sites, with additional preparations also underway for the unveiling of its newly renovated Olympia Trading Estate units in early September.
