A rapidly expanding environment consultancy firm has relocated to Joseph’s Well in Leeds in a flurry of deals at the historic office building.
Delta-Simons has taken 1,104 sq ft of space on the top floor of Joseph’s Well, which has undergone a major refurbishment.
Delta-Simons, which also has offices in Dublin, Durham, Lincoln, London, Norwich, Nottingham, and Manchester, is one of three new occupiers at Joseph’s Well.
The others are Symbol Consulting, which has taken 668 sq ft of space and Rape Crisis, signing for 655 sq ft.
Damian Robinson, executive director of Delta-Simons, which provides environmental and workplace wellbeing advice to a host of developers, retailers and industrial manufacturers, said: “We have relocated our Leeds office to Joseph’s Well to help with our company expansion due to sustained success over the past two years.
“Joseph’s Well is the perfect site to support a growing business like Delta-Simons due to the flexible workspace on offer. Since moving into our splendid new offices, we have found the location has proved extremely convenient for our clients and staff alike, with the Leeds ring road close by and the station just a 10-minute walk away. There is also ample parking for our site vehicles.”
The transformation of the 156,000 sq ft five-storey building in Westgate, which was originally built for Leeds clothing magnate and MP Sir John Barran, was undertaken by Leeds-based property company J Pullan & Sons.
Bruce Strachan, property director of Pullan’s, said: “These three new deals underline the continuing popularity of Joseph’s Well. Following the refurbishment, we have seen an increasing level of interest in Joseph’s Well resulting in new lettings. Our new tenants reflect the versatility and flexibility of space here, which is attracting a real breadth of occupiers.”
Sir John Barran pioneered the Leeds ready-made clothing industry in the 1850s, introducing the band knife for cutting multiple layers of cloth. In 1887 he added Joseph’s Well to his other factory in Park Square. As Mayor of Leeds, he secured the purchase of Roundhay Park for the city. Sir John also served as the Liberal MP for Leeds from 1876 – 1885.
The joint marketing agents for Joseph’s Well are Carter Towler and the Leeds office of WSB.
