Work has begun on Radius Payment Solutions’ new global headquarters following a turf cutting ceremony hosted at Crewe Business Park today (9th June). Pochin’s is at the heart of the project having secured Radius’s interest in the undeveloped plot and will now create a new 66,000 sq ft campus for the Sunday Times Top Track 100 business.
With 20 offices across 13 countries, Radius will improve capacity from its existing site at Crewe’s Herald Park to up to 500 employees as it continues to promote Crewe as its international base. Work on the four-storey project, which is to include a gym, communal meeting areas and café, is expected to be completed in Spring 2018.
Bill Holmes, CEO of Radius Payment Solutions, commented: “Staying in Crewe was always at the forefront of our plans for this exciting move. We’re a growing international business and the area’s connectivity in that respect made it the obvious choice for us to keep our global headquarters here. What we now have is the opportunity to create a unique, modern working environment for our staff that will further enhance our ability to attract the best talent. We’re extremely pleased to be able to do so in conjunction with Pochin’s who share our passion for building on the established reputation of Cheshire and the North West as a location of choice for big businesses.”
Consultants on the scheme include How Planning, AEW Architects, ABA Consultants, Abacus and SI Sealy. Agents for the scheme are Legat Owen and Matthews & Goodman.
Bob Nicholson, Director at Pochin’s Ltd, said: “This project is our first commercial office build since handing over the keys to Moneypenny’s ambitious new headquarters in Wrexham last summer. That campus project has gone on to be recognised by the British Council for Offices as the best new corporate workplace in the North and we’re looking forward to working with AEW Architects again to deliver another high quality project for Radius.”
