Accountancy and advisory firm MHA has relocated its Lancaster office from the city centre to a two-storey, 4,200 sq ft office at 14 Mannin Way on Lancaster Business Park, which is located off Caton Road close to junction 34 of the M6.

 The firm has worked with office interior design and fit-out company Claremont to refurbish the new office in a way that creates “a vibrant, flexible space”.

Graham Gordon, partner and regional chair for MHA, said: “There are two major drivers behind the review of our current office provision. One is the need to create an office environment that’s more aligned to modern working, enabling us to attract, inspire and retain the best talent.

“The other is our commitment to our ESG strategy and ensuring our buildings and working practices achieve a better environmental performance and support our carbon reduction journey. Our new office at Lancaster Business Park achieves both of these aims and we’re pleased to have completed the move.”

He added: “We’ve embraced fully the changes to working patterns that started with the pandemic. We also believe that spending time in the office presents our people with the best environment to learn from colleagues, develop their skills and grow as people.

“Therefore, we need to ensure our office environments are the best they can be, promoting wellbeing and supporting better team-working, collaboration and client service.”

Over 90 per cent of waste generated from the project has been diverted away from landfill through reuse and recycling. Local supply chains were used on the fit out, while all fabrics and products were selected from UK manufacturers with sustainability and environmental accreditations provided, the firm said.

The flooring finishes also offer a ‘cradle to cradle’ solution – allowing full recycling and reuse of specified products. The design also incorporates the reuse of existing ceilings and mechanical services.

MHA, ranked as the 14th largest accountancy group in the UK, has six offices across the North West.
