Photographs of the recently refurbished head office of Morson Projects, Darwen House, have been released and show just how striking a transformation the building has undergone in recent months.
Due to continued expansion, growth and recent contract wins at the Morson Group, Morson Projects made the decision to move back to Darwen House in early October 2013 with a scheduled relocation date of January 2nd 2014.
Darwen House was previously occupied by Morson Projects from 2000 – 2010, prior to returning due to the need for more space.
17,700sqft and half a million pounds in refurbishment costs later and Darwen House was open for business on time and as planned.
Managing Director of Morson Projects, Julian Garratt, said: “Being at [Morson Group head office] Adamson House was a real privilege and I didn’t think the facilities could be matched, but the investment and hard work have really paid off delivering a fantastic space perfectly suited to our engineering services business – I can’t wait to start showing people around!”
The evolution of Darwen House has been substantial with new and improved facilities listed below:
• State-of-the-art IT data centre
• 200 new workstations and office equipment
• 1 Conference room
• 4 Meeting rooms
• 3 New Breakout areas
• Gym facilities
Project manager, Charles Lowndes, commented: “The challenge was to emulate the working environment of Adamson House. Ceilings and carpets have been replaced, Stairwells upgraded, new furniture, kitchens and facilities. I hope staff feels that this has been achieved.
All departments worked alongside a high quality construction team of contractors. Very little time off was taken over the Christmas period in order to have all systems operational for the New Year.
On 2nd of January as programmed the office was open for business with full occupancy on the 6th”
