The £6.6m Washington Business Centre in Sunderland hit a milestone this week when exterior works reached completion.

Pre-letting opportunities are now being offered to regional and national companies at the site, which is weeks away from opening for business. The new building, expected to create or sustain in excess of 200 jobs, is being built as a hub for up to 30 growing businesses following its development by Barmston Developments, a joint venture between Wilton Developments and Clugston Estates, for Sunderland City Council. The contractor is GMI Construction.

Coun Harry Trueman, Washington councillor and deputy leader of Sunderland City Council said: “It’s fantastic to see the transformation of this site in a few short months. It will be one of the best addresses in the area for growing businesses to thrive.”
