CPMG Architects has moved into its new headquarters in Nottingham city centre.

The company has overseen a substantial internal refit of the property, which started life in the 1870s as the headquarters of the British Waterways Company.

It later became the Standard Chartered Bank before more recently being used by several bars before sitting vacant for nearly three years.

The team is now settling into the newly revamped space at the Grade II listed three-storey building in St. Peter’s Gate, which overlooks St. Peter’s Church, after choosing a fresh location during the pandemic.

Managing director Richard Flisher said: “We are proud of our Nottingham heritage and have been based in the Lace Market for more than three decades.

“This move is a vote of confidence in our home city and in the future vitality of the city centre and brings a brilliant building back into full use.”

CPMG is currently working on The Island Quarter, one of the largest regeneration projects of its kind in the UK, healthcare projects for the Queen’s Medical Centre and a major new student residential and co-living development on a main arterial route into the city.

Flisher added: “We have some very exciting projects in a wide variety of sectors and this move has been the perfect opportunity to look afresh at the way we work. We remain committed to the future vitality of Nottingham city centre, and we are really happy with our new headquarters – it’s a great place to be and we love the location.”
