Our new head office


Since we set up business here almost 150 years ago, we have grown hugely, expanding across a large complex of buildings in Manchester city centre. We are still growing and investing, which is why we are now planning to redevelop the whole 20-acre site – starting with brand new, purpose-built offices. 

Due to open in 2012, our new, 15 storey Head Office will be a distinctive and impressive sight on the city’s horizons, and it will mark the first exciting phase of our ambitious plans.

Designed to the very highest standards, with the latest design innovation and environmental features, the development will bring together all of our 3,000 Head office based employees into one high quality, open plan building. With all our teams in one place, we will be able to communicate more easily and work better together. The new offices include first-class facilities, and offer an exceptional working environment.

The new building represents a landmark and a real statement about our philosophy and our commitment to the city, as well as our confidence in the future.
