Accountants and business advisors Beever and Struthers have taken a ten-year lease on the 11,000 sq ft second floor of the historic One Express building in Ancoats, Manchester and will relocate from its current head office at St George’s House, Chester Road, Manchester in mid-November.

One Express is a unique space which hosts its own gym and café and is surrounded by other useful amenities.  Ancoats has benefitted from significant regeneration and is now one of the most desirable areas of Manchester to work and live.

The new open-plan space offers a diverse range of working areas, collaboration spaces and private booths – equating to 200 flexible working stations.  This beautifully restored and refurbished building is a great fit for Beever and Struthers’ profile and culture.

Maria Hallows, executive partner at Beever and Struthers, said:

“Our people are our most valuable asset. The move will allow Beever and Struthers to maintain a local and accessible office for our valued clients, current and future staff and our network of professional contacts.

“This fabulous new space is designed for effective teamwork, knowledge sharing, collaboration, and a more enjoyable working day.  And in a thriving diverse neighbourhood. Who wouldn’t want that?

“Relocating allows us to continue to deliver the five-star service our clients have come to expect from Beever and Struthers, whilst providing a much-improved hybrid working environment for current and future staff. Having the team located on the same floor, something we did not have previously, was really important to us.  We look forward to welcoming clients and colleagues to our exciting new home.

“As a firm our carbon footprint is very important to us, so we have not only accepted but embraced Greater Manchester’s Net Zero ambitions. Our new home is environmentally smart and also accessible to both major train stations and the Metrolink system encouraging our colleagues and clients to travel by public transport or to take advantage of our cycle to work scheme.”

The firm’s relocation follows a successful period during which it defied the economic downturn caused by the pandemic.

Headquartered in Manchester with 16 partners and around 200 staff, it continues to provide a full suite of specialist and tailored services for clients including audit and assurance, corporate services, tax and VAT services for small and medium-sized enterprises.

The partners would like to thank architect John Boardman of Stephenson Studio. A great visionary and perfectionist, he worked closely with the firm to create a modern, functional, and beautiful office space that befits the Art Deco iconic building. It was a pleasure for the firm to work with him.

Thanks also goes to Angela Seddon, project manager of in4m Property Consultants and Tom Ailes of The Furniture Practice who also helped Beever and Struthers to achieve the perfect working environment it set out to achieve.
