Yorkshire Post - Business - - BUSINESS -

AN EN­VI­RON­MEN­TAL con­sul­tants has ex­panded into Joseph’s Well, which has un­der­gone a ma­jor re­fur­bish­ment to cre­ate of­fice space in cen­tral Leeds.

Weet­wood Ser­vices has re­lo­cated from St Paul’s Street, tak­ing 1,052 sq ft of of­fice space at Joseph’s Well.

The trans­for­ma­tion of the 156,000 sq ft five-storey build­ing in West­gate, which was orig­i­nally built for Leeds cloth­ing mag­nate and MP Sir John Bar­ran, has been un­der­taken by Leeds-based prop­erty com­pany J Pul­lan & Sons.

Weet­wood Ser­vices is one of two new oc­cu­piers at Joseph’s Well, with con­struc­tion com­pany the Tor­sion Group tak­ing an 886 sq ft of­fice suite.

Mean­while, Cur­va­ture Ser­vices has ex­panded within the build­ing, al­most dou­bling its space with a new 1,023 sq ft of­fice.

Kevin Til­ford, manag­ing di­rec­tor at Weet­wood, said: “We have moved in or­der to pro­vide a bet­ter en­vi­ron­ment for our staff and to strengthen our brand in Leeds. We con­sid­ered a num­ber of lo­ca­tions be­fore set­tling on Joseph’s Well.

“The key things that swung it were prox­im­ity to the city cen­tre, on­site park­ing, the pres­ence of su­per-fast fi­bre broad­band within the build­ing and the abil­ity to have a suite cus­tomised as part of a com­pre­hen­sive re­fur­bish­ment.

“The build­ing also pro­vides a safe and se­cure en­vi­ron­ment with 24/7 ac­cess which is ob­vi­ously a key con­sid­er­a­tion.”

Weet­wood is an in­de­pen­dent con­sul­tancy firm spe­cial­is­ing in flood risk, drainage and util­i­ties.

Core ser­vices in­clude un­der­tak­ing flood risk as­sess­ments and de­sign­ing drainage sys­tems to ac­com­pany plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tions, and through the project life cy­cle to con­struc­tion.

Joseph’s Well is lo­cated within Leeds city cen­tre be­side the In­ner Ring Road.

Bruce Stra­chan, prop­erty di­rec­tor of Pul­lan’s, said: “There is cur­rently 14,500 sq ft of qual­ity of­fice space avail­able in the build­ing in a range of suite sizes from 180 sq ft to 5,000 sq ft.”

Sir John Bar­ran pi­o­neered the Leeds ready-made cloth­ing in­dus­try in the 1850s.
