New multi-million pound investment for Halifax
14 Jan 2015
Insurance company Covea have recently announced it is to redevelop and move into Halifax’s historic Grade II-listed A & B Mills at Dean Clough.
Covea’s current employees, who are spread out across three buildings within the town, will move into the newly-refurbished single-site location following completion of the restoration works.
This significant investment signals Covéa Insurance’s long term commitment both to the continued growth of its business and to the Halifax area. The restoration work is due for completion in 2016 and will provide the organisation with 75,000 square feet of contemporary office space with the capacity to accommodate up to 825 employees.
"Halifax has been an important base for our business for almost 50 years and we’re delighted to have secured the future of these historic mills as a long term solution for our office needs. For some time it’s been our ambition to have a single-site in Halifax to meet both our current and longer-term requirements. We considered a number of potential solutions, but the renovation opportunity at Dean Clough was by far the most attractive and the best fit. We’re all thrilled to have secured this opportunity and are really looking forward to seeing the mills brought back to life and to moving in."
