Work starts on breathing new life into Fort Dunlop atrium

Work is set to begin on an exciting new phase of work at Fort Dunlop that will play a key part in transforming the iconic building.

The 300,000 sq ft mixed use building was acquired last summer by a fund managed by Tristan Capital Partners, in partnership with EDG Property, and the new owners have already been busy on various external works including a complete rebranding and upgrading its car parking offer.

A series of works are planned over the next couple of years to significantly upgrade the building – which is home to almost 3,000 workers and businesses such as Capita and Trinity Mirror Midlands – and the next phase will see £380,000 spent on redeveloping the main atrium space.

EDG Property founder Neil Edginton, said this was an important part of the overall vision as it was the most visible part of the building.   He said: “Urban Splash did a great job at Fort Dunlop and brought back to life one of the region’s most recognisable buildings after more than two decades standing idle, but this is the next phase in a really exciting new chapter for the building.”

“The aim is to create an entrance befitting of an office building that boasts an impressive roster of tenants from the NHS to Capita to Trinity Mirror and businesses with client bases that include some of the world’s biggest corporations.”

“We want to introduce more light into the space and we have also moved the management office to a different floor to improve the F&B offer and we are very close to securing a fantastic new tenant which I know will be welcomed by everyone in the building.”
