100 YEAR-OLD BUSINESS MOVES INTO THE BASE
Baker Mallett, a provider of professional services to the construction industry, has moved its head office to The Base on Dallam Lane, Warrington.
The company, which was founded in 1919 and is currently celebrating its centenary year, offers quantity surveying, project management, building surveying and health and safety services to the property and construction industry. It has a number of supporting offices across England.
The firm has taken the penthouse suite and two extra supporting offices at the town’s high technology hub as it expands to meet client demand. The move sees the number of firms operating out of The Base reach twenty-three and the number of staff now occupying the building to 246.
“We’re delighted to welcome such a long-standing and successful business to The Base,” said Jayne Furnival, group property director for Langtree, which manages the building on behalf of Warrington & Co.
“Baker Mallett is a very forward-thinking business with huge investment in IT to support the work it does across Europe and there is a ready-made eco-system in the building of technology-driven businesses with whom it can collaborate as it grows,” added Furnival.
Commenting on their move, Baker Mallett’s Chairman Neil Griffiths said: “The Base is the best Grade A space in Warrington and we wanted to make sure that we offer our employees the best working environment possible. The connectivity to the rail and road network is ideal for us to service our clients across the UK.’’
