One of the country’s leading housebuilders, Barratt and David Wilson Homes, has opened its regional headquarters for a brand new division in the newly refurbished Lakeside 300 building on Broadland Business Park.
Barratt and David Wilson Homes Anglia has taken a 7,220 sq ft Grade A suite in the Lakeside 300 office building on a 10-year term with a break at five years. The office currently accommodates 40 employees as part of the homebuilder’s new division, with an additional 45 staff members based onsite. The Lakeside 300 building has just undergone a complete modernisation and refurbishment to incorporate a range of new facilities including electric vehicle charging points and exceptional energy efficiency, with an EPC A rating achieved throughout the building.
Barratt and David Wilson Homes is one of the most active housebuilders in East Anglia and currently has sites under construction in locations including Sprowston, Cringleford, Horsford and Watton.
Simon Wood, Managing Director at Barratt and David Wilson Homes Anglia, said: “We’re thrilled to have opened the doors to our new divisional office at Broadland Business Park. The location provides us with excellent access to our developments across Norfolk and the new set-up will help us grow and thrive as a brand new division.”
A number of the region’s major companies are located on Broadland Business Park, including fellow housebuilders Lovell Partnerships and Persimmon Homes, along with businesses such as Lovewell Blake, Gardners Books, Start-rite Shoes, TaxAssist Accountants, Delta Fire, GAP Group, Marsh, Broadland District Council and South Norfolk Council.
James Allen, partner at agents Roche Chartered Surveyors, said: “We are delighted that Barratt and David Wilson Homes Anglia has selected Broadland Business Park for its location. Lakeside 300 provides ideal accommodation for a business of the size and standing.
“Lakeside 300 has received a very healthy amount of interest since the completion of its major refurbishment this year. It is very good news that Barratt and David Wilson Homes has now moved in; we have several other live enquiries for many of the remaining suites in the three-storey building.
“Despite two years of a challenging market, it is encouraging to see such buoyant interest in high quality Grade A office accommodation in Norwich and we are looking forward to securing more lettings during the early part of 2023.”
