A Stroud landscape architects have become the latest occupant within the newly refurbished King Street building, adjoining Five Valleys shopping centre.
Davies Landscape Architects (DLA) have been running for 17 years, have relocated from their office at Stroud House, Russell Street, to the unit above the new medical practice which opened at the end of last year.
The company offers a range of services covering landscape design and planning having worked on various sized projects throughout the UK.
The 12 strong team bring a breadth of experience and expertise across the residential, leisure and commercial sectors and are actively recruiting to employ four more people to assist with their growing portfolio of clients.
Managing Director of Davies Landscape Architects, Mike Davies, said: “We used to have the best view of Poundland from our old office watching the pigeons fly in and out of the broken windows on the upper floor. The building was an eyesore, blighting the main approach into the town and we applaud Dransfield Properties for delivering transformational change in the town centre, which we believe will act as a catalyst for further town centre improvements.
“We are thrilled to have secured these high quality offices, where we want to remain and grow as a business, offering our employees attractive and spacious working conditions in a highly energy efficient building.”
Number 1 King Street has undergone a £6.5m refurbishment transforming a tired and unattractive building into an Edwardian style jewel for the town.
The new building houses state-of-the-art medical facilities now home to two local GP practices, Locking Hill and Beeches Green, with physio and podiatry services relocating there this week too.
The building has been developed by South Yorkshire firm, Dransfield Properties who are also remodelling and managing the Five Valleys shopping centre next door.
Managing Director of Dransfield Properties, Mark Dransfield DL, said: “Formerly Poundland and before that Woolworths this building was only ever occupied on the ground floor. Now the building has been brought into full use with all four floors housing important community services with medical on the ground, first and second floors and a new library starting their fit out this month.
“We’re thrilled that this local well-established company have chosen number 1 King Street to expand their business.”
