Harrow consulting is pleased to announce further refurbishment and office conversion works to the Grade ii Listed Milburn House on Dean Street, in the heart of Newcastle.
Harrow Consulting Ltd continues to work with London and Scottish Investments undertaking an extensive internal refurbishment programme within one of Newcastle’s oldest purpose built office buildings. Built by the Milburn Family in 1905, Milburn House is an imposing Grade II Listed Building which was, at the time, the largest speculative office development in Europe (approximately 14,790sqm / 15,9198.24sqft).
Harrow continues to sympathetically modernise the internal office accommodation, undertaking extensive repair/conservation works and general building maintenance.
Since working with London and Scottish Investments, Commercial lettings / occupancy continue to rise. The latest building refurbishment project involves the expansion of pioneering digital solutions agency, Orange Bus’ current office space.
Orange Bus solves complex problems, designs solutions, software and experiences for international brands such as Formula One’s Sahara Force India team and Barbour – along with UK Government departments such as HMRC and the NHS.
It’s agency teams do creative, disruptive and user-centric work that has a lasting and genuine impact on the way people around the world live, communicate and trade.
Following significant growth, Orange Bus has expanded its operations into London, Sheffield and Edinburgh but continues to run its headquarters from Milburn House.
Harrow has facilitated the company’s ongoing expansion with a full refurbishment of D Floor in Milburn House.
The six figure contract value provides an additional circa 4,000sqft of space, and is scheduled for completion in June 2017.
Graeme Harker, Director at Harrow, commented ‘Harrow continue to modernise and refurbish existing office areas within the building for both new and existing tenants. The new Orange Bus office area comprises large open plan accommodation and we were able to expose and highlight key listed building features including the original steel framework, manufactured by the iconic Dorman Long company, as used on the neighbouring Tyne Bridge’
