Bruntwood Works who creates, owns and manages some of the most innovative workspaces in the north west and midlands, has unveiled the newly refurbished Blackfriars House. Following a multi-million-pound renovation this new creative hub becomes one of the most sought-after commercial office spaces in the city centre. 

The refurb is part of a £50m investment into Bruntwood Works’ Pioneer programme which involves the development of key buildings within the cities it operates. Blackfriars House is home to impressive state of the art amenities that will enhance the working experience for creative and digital businesses in the city, including an in-built podcast studio which doubles as a 1920s style reading room, a 70-seat auditorium to be used for industry talks and events, a relaxed lounge area with fireplaces for less formal meeting settings and over 120 flexible desks, 12 dedicated coworking desks and hot desk space in the lounge.

The buildings also provides brand new meeting room, serviced offices, split across the ground and fourth floors, together with larger leased spaces throughout the building. 

Bruntwood Works has partnered with renowned local independent coffee shop Bean who will serve customers a full range of breakfast, lunch and snack options in the ground floor lounge and workspace area. 

Andrew Cooke, regional director at Bruntwood Works said: “Blackfriars House has been many months in the planning, and it’s fantastic to open the brand-new workspace. As part of our Pioneer programme, we are committed to bringing communities together across the region and enhance creativity in the workplace by delivering a vibrant area for people to work flexibly, socialise and network with like minded business people.

“With health and wellbeing being a top priority for many city workers today, the demand for flexible workspace has soared and Blackfriars House will be a key spot for individuals to fuel creativity, work hard and relax thanks to its modern décor, furnishings and environment."

Blackfriars House is already home to industry-leading customers, including Matillion, Realtime Visualisation, Ampersand, Kuits and Manchester International Festival.
