Here’s a small selection of what people have said about us.
  • Capital & Centric is under construction with 20,599 sq ft (1,914sq m) of office and warehouse accommodation, including laboratory, research and development space.

    The accommodation, known as Lightbox, located on Abbey Street in Birkenhead, is targeted towards small to medium sized enterprises within the Offshore Wind Sector. The 1.5 acre (0.6 hectare) site, which Capital & Centric purchased from Wirral Council in December 2014, will be a hub to support the offshore wind farm sector.

    Regional Grant Funding has supported the scheme with £900,000 of gap funding.

    Capital & Centric’s Michelle Rothwell commented: “We have had really good demand from the sector and are predicting the units to be fully let within the first six months. The site is located adjacent to the banks of the River Mersey where one of the UK’s largest windfarms has been given the green light and as such there is a real buzz around the scheme.”

    A special quirk to the ‘Lightbox’ design is the transparent roof panels which means that no internal lighting will be required during the day as it allows daylight to shine through creating huge savings for tenants, and then in the evening if lights are switched on the scheme lights up creating a tremendous visual effect.

    Sean Seery, Partner at Smith and Sons said: “This is fairly unique commercial development for Wirral. It has been designed in such a way to offer flexible floor space.

    “The location is excellent for those operating in this sector, and is only a few miles away from the vast Burbo Bank Extension, placing any new tenant at the heart of a rapidly developing industry here in Merseyside.”

  • Capital & Centric’s 25,000 sq ft office refurbishment at 12 Tithebarn Street in Liverpool has been rebranded Tempest as it nears completion.

    The £6m redevelopment will be offered as flexible office space for start-up and small companies and includes a new roof garden break out space. The 1970s building had previously been empty for nearly ten years but has undergone a makeover with new cladding and a revamped roof.

    The development was funded with the help of a £2.4m European grant for regeneration and Capital & Centric has been keen to stress it will not look or act as a traditional office.

    Hoardings around the development show it will use the name Tempest and will offer ‘funky’ office space in the heart of the city’s business district.

    Capital & Centric has a number of speculative developments ongoing in Liverpool including the £4m redevelopment of the Bunker building adjacent to the iconic Littlewoods Building, and warehouse and logistics space at Estuary Commercie Park in Speke.

  • Property firm Capital & Centric has boosted its development team as its pipeline of work grows.

    Louise Pearson has been promoted to development director and Max Bentham has joined as development surveyor, while Emma Jarrett joins as asset manager, alongside Michelle Rothwell, who has just joined as development surveyor.

    Max was a development surveyor at Urban Splash for five years - he left in 2010 and has been a development consultant for the past four years. Max will be working on the company’s £175m mixed-use Aytoun Street project, along with others starting construction this year.

    Emma was previously in Germany working in the renewables sector and prior to that was at Property Alliance Group. She has worked in the property industry for the past 15 years.  Michelle has now joined from CBRE office agency.

    She announced her departure in September. The reshuffle sees Anna Dooley depart back to consultancy within Deloitte’s regeneration team. She joined Capital & Centric a year ago from Knight Frank.

    Adam Higgins, Director at Capital & Centric said: “We currently have three live projects on site and spend £1m a month on construction, with the additional projects commencing this year there will five live construction sites spending over £1m a week, Max, Emma and Michelle will help us deliver these sites in addition to acquiring new projects.”
