BUSINESS park Lingfield Point in Darlington is marketing another converted historic building as a modern office it calls Rocket.
Rocket is a 100,000 sq ft single floorplate building created out of the original wool factory building with capacity for over 1,000 people.
A dedicated entrance and piazza gives way to a high specification, open-plan office with raised floors and flexible workspace.
John Orchard of developer Marchday said: “Rocket is ideal for headquarters, call centres and back office support centres and will offer a cracking combination of high specification office space and a delightful landscaped environment.”
The park has also completed work on the Wool Lofts, which is the tallest on the 107-acre site.
Orchard added: “These are both remarkable buildings – each is a landmark in its own way – and will fit in with our ethos of designing and creating ‘offices with soul,” he said.
“We’ve been working with internationally renowned architects FAT to create stunning designs that will take full advantage of their original features and ‘upcycle’ them into office spaces.”
John said: “More than 16,000 sq ft is available over four floors at Wool Lofts – totally self-contained – with a dedicated feature entrance and plaza and plenty of natural light.
“It’s a lofty, relaxed working space that can easily be sub-divided for efficiency, creating floor areas ranging from 4,300 to over 16,000 sq ft.”
The converted Paton and Baldwin wool factory is home to more than 2,500 workers based at prestigious businesses such as the Student Loans Company, Naafi and Faulkner Browns and it will become a 107-acre mixed use development.
