Former Gleeds office to undergo multimillion-pound upgrade

Richard Sutton

A historic landmark office building in the Nottingham suburb of Wilford is set to undergo a multimillion-pound refurbishment after a property deal brokered by commercial property specialists NG Chartered Surveyors.

Acting on behalf of family pension fund owners, NG has taken back possession of Wilford House following engineering, property and construction consultancy Gleeds’ lease coming to an end.

The 12,000 sq ft Grade 2 listed building is set in 1.5 acres of landscaped grounds

The works will include a remodelling of the internal space and increasing the on-site parking provision and an upgrade to all IT infrastructure.

Richard Sutton, director at NG Chartered Surveyors, said: “When complete Wilford House will offer something very special indeed and something not available anywhere else in Nottingham. It already has the vital components of connectivity, accessibility and style and the level of investment will appeal to any aspirational occupier. It certainly won’t be conventional office space – it’s a space with real personality.

“Wilford House will have the quintessentially quirky British style pioneered by Nottingham’s very own Paul Smith. It will marry the old with the new seamlessly to become some of the most sought after space on the market. We’d urge any ambitious companies looking for the ‘wow factor’ for their next office move to get in touch.”
