Wellbeing company targets global growth after moving to business park

A wellbeing company offering services ranging from blood tests to boxing is the latest arrival at a business park which has been converted from a military garage into a complex supporting more than 200 jobs.

The Livewell Syndicate has relocated from offices and a training suite in Hull city centre to take three units at Base, the former Chamberlain Business Park which has been transformed since being bought by Allenby Commercial three years ago.

CJ Turrian, who launched The Livewell Syndicate with partner Dan Snow in 2019, said their clients have followed them from their previous city centre location to the new site.

Georgia Allenby, design and marketing director at Allenby Commercial, said work is under way to create more space at the business park to handle rising demand.

Turrian and Snow are both University of Hull graduates and met during their teaching careers.

As The Livewell Syndicate they offer different types of coaching models and cater to business people seeking support themselves or for their organisation with issues around physical and mental health and wellbeing.

Snow said: “I realised the support people needed wasn’t there and we identified a business opportunity.”

“We ask the questions that a lot of people are afraid of asking. We find out where employees need more support, explore the problems employees are facing in the workplace and offer feedback that links employee wellbeing with overall business performance.”

Turrian added: “It’s very encouraging that our clients have followed us here from our old premises in the city centre, and we’ve also grown our corporate customer base since we moved. They tend to come in for one service and end up improving themselves in a more holistic way.

“We are also working further afield. We have done a few broadcasts into India and we are also looking into opportunities in other countries.

“We are still working with the university to help us better understand the eastern Asian market and the Middle East.”

Allenby said: “We have redeveloped around 70% of the site and are working on the rest. It’s home to around 60 businesses employing more than 200 people between them, we have some exciting new tenants coming in and we are creating more space for light industrial, workshops, storage and offices.

“The site is 98% occupied and demand is strong, which wasn’t the case when we took it on.

“People have responded to the improvements and the higher standard of accommodation which includes a café, kitchens, modern new bathrooms, gym facilities, meeting rooms and – crucially – plenty of free parking.”
