Offices to open soon

The 6.6m Washington Business Centre under construction in Sunderland has reached a key milestone with exterior works now completed at the building, at the entrance to Turbine Business Park.

Preletting opportunities are now being offered to regional and national businesses.

The building will act as a hub for up to 30 growing businesses, with high specification offices, workshops and hybrid units just off the A19 and A1231. It will create or sustain more than 200 jobs.

The 5,200sq metre centre is being developed by Barmston Developments, a joint venture between Wilton Developments and Clugston Estates, for Sunderland City Council. The contractor is GMI Construction.

It includes 24 office spaces, seven hybrid units which include office and workshop space, and 13 workshops. There are two meeting rooms and 102 free on-site parking spaces.

The design includes a central atrium, with breakout and refreshment points, as well as shower and changing facilities for tenants.
