NEW OFFICE LAUNCH 2020:
Westfields Construction launched the new Northern Office in 2020.
Situated in the heart of Manchester’s business district and surrounded by some of Manchester’s finest architecture.
The new Office will house the Pre-Construction, Commercial, Planning, HR and Design Departments.
Interestingly the building was originally built for the District Bank which later became the Natwest Bank. Sir Hugh Casson was the Architect who laid out the Festival of Britain in 1951. This design won a competition for what at the time was a £12million project.
It is no longer the North West Headquarters of Natwest and It also offers an interesting and somewhat unusual feature. It has three basement floors which provide a secure strongroom and archive storage facility, once used to store gold bullion.
