Birmingham consultancy to manage North West’s biggest ever office development

Birmingham-based construction consultancy Edmond Shipway has been appointed as project manager, quantity surveyor and employer’s agent for online beauty and wellbeing giant The Hut Group’s (THG) mammoth new headquarters. Located at Manchester Airport City, it will be the UK’s biggest bespoke office development outside of London.

The largest of two sites totalling circa 1,000,000sq ft. of office and studio space that have been earmarked for development by the business, ‘THQ’ will be a ground-breaking campus built on 16.8 acres over four phases.

Phase one is expected to begin early next year and will comprise 280,000 sq. ft. of state-of-the-art office space to accommodate around 10,000 employees. The interior of THQ has been designed with an integrated approach across the architecture, landscape, interior design, culture and workplace strategy, in order to create an enticing and visually striking work environment for the business’ UK-based workforce.

Jamie Crouch, director at Edmond Shipway in Birmingham who is responsible for the scheme, said:

“The development of THQ represents a major investment and will inevitably provide a huge boost to Airport City Manchester. I am delighted that my team’s performance on projects like THG’s Omega Distribution Warehouse, its production facility in Warrington and its European distribution hub in Poland has resulted in another appointment for this incredibly exciting international brand”.

Matthew Moulding, founder and chief executive officer of The Hut Group, added:

“THQ is a landmark development for THG and I am pleased to have Edmond Shipway on board to manage its delivery. This project will cement our position as a significant player and employer in the UK and we look forward to expanding even further from here, attracting and retaining the most innovative and inventive talent from across the globe.”
