The 12-week project was delivered by Edward Dewhurst Ltd and incorporated a series of carefully-arranged glazed partitions throughout the open plan space, comprising meeting rooms, a staff kitchen and break-out areas.
Whitespace Consultants carried out a detailed space planning exercise, designed to meet the exact needs of the users and provided fit-for-purpose office furniture to achieve a comfortable and attractive working environment. The move follows similar out-of-town relocations in recent years from the Diocese of Chester.
Alistair Baines, chairman at Cassidy + Ashton, said: “There’s been a sharp rise in the take-up of out-of-town locations not just with North West-based Diocese but across the commercial property market as a whole due to a shortage of space.
“Our priority was to create a modern office environment that meets the changing nature of Blackburn Diocese and its staff and ensures the longevity of the building.”
