Leading construction company Carillion has entered into a contract to lease back part of its Castleford development in Sheffield after selling it.
The firm will lease the 12802m² Office 2 building at The Square for 15 years, to house its National Support Centre, which is currently in Rotherham.
John Platt, managing director of Carillion Facilities Management, said: “This new location will be a key element of the strategy for Carillion in the development of a centre of excellence for customer communication centres.”
Councillor Colin Ross, cabinet member for employment, enterprise and development at Sheffield City Council said: “The sale of the offices is a substantial investment in what are difficult market conditions.
“The move reduces vacant office space and is part of what has been generally a good year for take up of space in contrast to most other cities. The move brings jobs to the city with potentially more to follow.”
