The first deal has been announced at Element, in Birchwood, Warrington, following its refurbishment.

Bridge Properties has signed up Soletanché Freyssinet IT UK for the 40,000 sq ft office building.

The international soil, structural and nuclear engineering company, has taken a 3,362 sq ft on a five-year lease in what is the first letting for Element.

Redesigned by Incognito, the building, formerly known as Dominion House, has received a high ‘A’ EPC rating and the newly installed heating and ventilation system has received the accolade of ‘Best Commercial Installation of the Year’ at the National Energy Savings Awards.

Paul McCann, director at Bridge Properties, said: “With our 20 years’ experience in office development, first class contractors and innovative design team we have created what we believe is the most exciting office scheme outside Manchester providing exactly what occupiers expect from a workplace.”

Mark Canning, director at Canning O’Neill, said: “Birchwood is a competitive market, but Bridge has taken the blueprint forged at Eden Point in Cheadle and taken it up several notches.

“The large café lounge and terrace, stunning gym, feature mezzanine space and roof terrace at the top of the building are all exceptional and have helped to position Element as a premier business address for global companies such as Soletanché Freyssinet IT UK.”

Quoting £21 per sq ft on the lower floors, £23 on the top floor, mezzanine and private roof terrace, space is available in suites from 2,500 sq ft.

Flexible Business Interiors delivered the refurbishment.
