Kingdom moving to new National Support Centre

clip_image002Kingdom is delighted to announce that they will be moving to a new National Support Centre within the coming months (expected June 16).

Kingdom’s new National Support Centre will be at Willow House, 1 Woodlands Park, Ashton Road, Newton-le-Willows, WA12 0HF.

Willow House is a detached modern office building of steel frame and brick clad construction with a pitched tiled roof. It includes approximately 63 ground level car parking spaces around the building. The offices will be arranged over three floors and cover approximately 12,750 sq ft. It is situated at the entrance to Woodlands Park, a mature, well located 4.59 acre business park in an attractive, landscaped setting.

The new National Support Centre will therefore both accommodate Kingdom’s current ongoing growth and allow for further growth in the future.

Commenting on the move, Terry Barton BA Hons, Kingdom’s CEO, said: “We have had a great home for over 20 years but through ongoing growth we have maximised capacity so started looking for new premises a few years ago. The new office will allow us to create a fantastic new home for Kingdom and will allow us to take the business to the next level as well as providing a fantastic place for our colleagues to work and our customers and future customers to visit and meet the fantastic team we have built. The new building will provide us with security and sustainability, and is giving us the opportunity to refresh and install state of the art software.”

The new building has a Grade A energy efficiency rating and will include: - meeting rooms, training room, board room and a touch screen presentation room. There will be 2,376 socket points, 100 megabyte fibre broadband, air conditioning, passenger lifts and energy efficient water fountains. 0.8 miles of category 6 data cable has been installed to ensure that Kingdom has state of the art data movements throughout the building. There will be Skype throughout, and there will be three 40” TV screens in the business suite, four 30” TV screens, two 50” TV screens on the first floor, and a 42” Plasma screen in the executive suite. Kingdom colleagues will be able to benefit from on site showers, hot water dispensers, an American style fridge and a picnic area. The kitchen infrastructure has been made from recyclable and renewable materials.

We will release further updates as we get nearer to the moving date.
