Team review

“The historic Shot Tower Business Hub building on Albert Street in Derby has undergone a complete refurbishment at a cost of £1.028m to transform it into a virtual business hub with all the resources needed by start-ups, graduates, SMEs and anyone looking to become self-employed. Dan, Darren and the team have worked with us to deliver a high level of service throughout the project. This partnership approach has enabled us to launch our new exciting virtual business hub and regenerate this part of the city.”
“We were delighted to be commissioned by Derby City Council on the Shot Tower Business Hub scheme. We delivered a sympathetic renovation on the existing dilapidated building and successfully transformed the 1930s building into modern facilities which will attract and support local businesses to the City of Derby. Client feedback has been positive, with our team being described as ‘brilliant’ and receiving top marks on the customer satisfaction form for value for money, quality of service, timely delivery, health and safety awareness and overall performance.”
“The Council feels really very happy with how the whole project came together and Faithful+Gould were really good at steering this to completion.”
