£1.3m Revamp of Chesterfield’s The HQ office building
Asset and property company FI Real Estate Management (FIREM) is undertaking a significant refurbishment programme at Chesterfield’s The HQ office building, formerly known as Rowland Hill House.
FIREM’s refurbishment works – totalling an investment of more than £1.3m – comprise an extensive refurbishment of the office accommodation to include a Grade A specification of raised floors and air conditioning.
Keen to enhance the offering for employees choosing a greener commute, FIREM has also installed new showers and cycle facilities, to cater to those who cycle to work. The HQ workers will also enjoy a brand-new entrance and reception area with communal meeting rooms.
Formerly home to the Royal Mail, The HQ comprises an imposing four storey office building totalling 44,000 sq. ft. The floor plates total 11,000 sq ft and are the largest available within the town and wider region. With a pre-let already agreed for the 3rd floor, the building can now accommodate requirements ranging from 5,000 – 33,000 sq ft.
A spokesperson for FI Real Estate Management commented: “We are delighted with the works that are progressing at the newly revamped The HQ. This investment demonstrates our continued commitment to the building and the interest being generated attests to the strength of the location and the quality of accommodation we have been able to offer.”
Peter Whiteley of Commercial Letting Agents Knight Frank added: “We are delighted that works have commenced at The HQ. This is a superb opportunity for office based businesses to secure flexible, efficient and modern space, finished to the highest standards in an accessible location, close to Chesterfield town centre. The HQ can deliver a variety of suite options on new leases and we have already received strong interest in the available accommodation.”
The offices also benefit from 150 on site car spaces as well as cycle storage. HQ is located within a 10 minute walk of Chesterfield Town Centre on Boythorpe Road, just off the A61/A617 roundabout, and is within a forty minute drive of Sheffield, Derby and Nottingham. Chesterfield railway station is located on the Midland Main Line, providing services across the UK.
