Mace Interiors secure HMRC fit-out job in Bristol
Mace Interiors has been appointed by HMRC to deliver 100,000 sq ft of category B fit-out at their new site in Bristol.Once completed, up to 1,400 HMRC staff will move into the new offices, located at 3 Glass Wharf, adjacent to Bristol Temple Meads Station.
The appointment is part of the HMRC’s creation of 13 state-of-the-art Regional Centres, part of the department’s ten year modernisation programme. The new centres will be equipped with the digital infrastructure and training facilities needed to build a more highly-skilled workforce.
HMRC’s 58,000 full-time equivalent employees are currently spread across 170 offices around the country, many of which are a legacy of the 1960s and 1970s, which range in size from around 6,000 people to fewer than ten.
Alongside Bristol, the 13 regional centres will include sites in Belfast, Birmingham, Cardiff, Croydon, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle, Nottingham, and Stratford in London.
Mace has already played a major role in the programme, recently delivering the fit-out for the HMRC’s pilot site in Croydon.
Financial Secretary to the Treasury, Mel Stride MP, said:
“This is a significant milestone for HMRC, which will bring together more than 1,600 colleagues into one central location.
“The department has a large and long established presence in the South West and the new regional centre in Bristol demonstrates its commitment to the region and its economy.”
Stewart Ward, Managing Director for Mace Interiors, said:
“We are honoured to be able to work with the HMRC on such an important programme, helping to ‘future proof’ their estate and help them prepare their staff for the future.
Our work in Croydon was a big success and we are confident we can deliver another fantastic result for them in Bristol.”
