Bruntwood’s 1 New York Street has landed another tenant in Manchester law firm George Davies. The firm is currently based on Fountain Street and will consolidate from 15,000 sq ft over four floors to a single floorplate of 9,000 sq ft, cutting out wasted space and still allowing for potential growth, said managing partner Mark Hovell: “Our ‘dead’ space equated to a spare seat for every member of staff. Most of our workstations were underused due to external meetings, home working and travel. We needed to tackle the efficiency of our premises.”

Will Lewis commented: “We put several options to George Davies considered several options which included recently developed areas of the city, but Bruntwood has worked closely with George Davies for the past 18 months and this relationship will continue to develop throughout the lease. Reviewing working methods can be positive and enable a move towards greater efficiency and profitability.”
