We are excited to announce that we will be taking the full eighth floor of Bruntwood’s Neo this March. The Manchester city centre development, which sits on the corner of Portland Street and Charlotte Street, is a 15-storey, 52,000 sq ft building formerly known as Bank House. Neo, taken from the Greek word ‘neonate’ – meaning ‘a fresh, revived form’ – is Bruntwood’s most evolved collaborative workspace to date.
Penketh Group won the tender to transform the fit-out and furniture for the office spaces last year and Bruntwood moved into their new offices in November. Now, we are looking forward to moving into our space as the first tenants of the Neo building. We first took up office space in Manchester in Booth Street last year after being chosen as US-based Steelcase’s partner for the North West. Steelcase is a global leader in office furniture, interior architecture and space solutions.
Paul Mann, Sales Director of The Penketh Group, said: “We fell in love with Bruntwood’s Neo as soon as we saw the computer-generated vision for the building. This iconic Manchester landmark building completely matches the aspirations of our own brand.
“We are working with an increasing number of interior designers, architects and progressive companies in the city and the space in Neo gives us the opportunity to really showcase our designer products.
“Customers visiting our new 5,000 sq ft showroom will be able to see our comprehensive range of products and with its 360 degree panoramic views across Manchester, the Neo office will also be an inspiring and vibrant place for our growing team of designers and workplace consultants to work.”
