Fountain offices receive new look

A major refurbishment of the first Sheffield city centre office to be built with air conditioning has been completed.

Sheffield's Fountain Precinct office block was built in the 1970s on the site of the former Grand Hotel and was the first office development in the city to break through the 10 a square foot rental barrier – a factor which initially discouraged tenants.

In addition to refurbishing the office space, contractors have created a new reception area and entrance from Barkers Pool

Rebecca Schofield, from letting agents Knight Frank, said: "The building has always been attractive to businesses needing high quality office space because of its prominent and accessible location next to restaurants, shops and bars, and the refurbishment has enhanced its appeal even further.

"With the refurbishment of the reception completed, we are expecting plenty of interest in the available accommodation, especially as the economy begins to turn."

Fountain Precinct contains 112,000 square feet of office space and is home to companies such as engineering and design consultants Atkins, insurance brokers Aon, the Co-operative Bank and Wrigleys Solicitors.

Offices are available in sizes from 1,700 sq ft upwards.
