New Warwick home for global business

The Warwickshire office of a global leader in project, engineering and environmental services has a new home.

Wood, which was formed by the merger of Wood Group and Amec Foster Wheeler Group in 2017, has moved from Leamington to 7,854 sq ft offices in Nicholls House, Homer Close, Tachbrook Park, Warwick.

Around 85 employees from its Environment and Infrastructure Solutions (E&IS) business are now occupying the first and second floors of the building which is owned by property development and investment company AC Lloyd, whose headquarters are on the ground floor.

Wood has signed a ten-year lease for the premises after moving from Gables House in Leamington where the business was also a long-term tenant.

Adrian Shields, VP Operations for the E&IS business in the UK, said the new base was well-matched to the growing needs of the business and its staff.

He said: “Wood operates in over 60 countries, employing around 60,000 people with world-wide revenues of $11 billion.

“We have offices throughout the UK, and in Warwickshire our work is focused on environmental consultancy, development planning and design.

“We chose Nicholls House because of the high-quality office space with facilities that meet our needs, including two meeting rooms, showers and secure cycle storage for our staff who cycle to and from work.

“It also provides the capacity for us to grow further in future, so this has been an ideal move.”

Mark Edwards, Managing Director at AC Lloyd Commercial, said it was great to welcome new neighbours to Nicholls House.

“We are delighted to have secured new neighbours for these high quality offices. I am sure Wood will find the accommodation to be first-class, which we know to be the case having been based here for the last six years – and, of course, we also built them!” he said.

“Nicholls House and Tachbrook Park, more widely, is an ideal location for a global business such as Wood which specialises in oil and gas, power and process, environment and infrastructure, clean energy, mining, nuclear, and general industrial sectors.

“Being strategically located in the centre of the UK and very close to the UK’s major motorway network offers fantastic connectivity for businesses and their customers.

“We are certain that Wood will find their new home to be a springboard for yet further success.”
