The Warwickshire-based international health food shop chain is doubling the size of its Nuneaton headquarters thanks to recent growth.
The health and wellness retailer Holland & Barrett International has added a further 48,000 sq ft to its global headquarters at Eliot Park, which is the hub for over 1,500 stores globally.
Coventry-based Deeley Construction, which took the project through the initial design and planning process, has now completed the multi-million-pound development and handed over the state-of-the-art building to the company.
Not only are staff now making the most of the extended office space, they are also benefitting from an on-site gym and nursery.
The new expansion will allow the HQ to house 500 staff once all positions have been filled.
It’s the latest phase of work that Deeley Group has undertaken at the park in Nuneaton after more than 40 years of regeneration on the site.
Peter Aldis, CEO of Holland & Barrett International, said: “We moved to Eliot Park in 2010 and it has been a great base from which to grow the company.
“We are delighted that we have been able to expand on-site to meet our plans to grow the business and we are very pleased with the work Deeley Construction has undertaken.
“It’s important to us that everyone in the team is happy while they are at work and that’s why we have included additional elements such as a gym and nursery, as we know these are key facilities for our staff.”
Martin Gallagher, managing director of Deeley Construction, said that Eliot Park had been a huge economic success story for the north of Warwickshire.
He said: “We have worked on behalf of Holland & Barrett International for many years and we are extremely proud to have completed this extension for the company.
“Eliot Park is a classic example of regeneration which Deeley Group has led over many decades and this latest phase shows Holland & Barrett’s commitment to the region.”
