Stepnell starts on new Leicester HQ for My Home Move

Stepnell has started work on a brand-new national headquarters in Leicester for My Home Move, the UK’s leading provider of mover conveyancing services.

Brackley Property Developments are developing the purpose-built offices at Grove Park, Enderby.

The £6 million building, designed by Leicester-based architects Stephen George & Partners LLP, will create state-of-the-art offices for My Home Move’s professional support staff and conveyancing teams. Our Nottingham construction team has been appointed to the £2.9 million construction contract to build the steel-framed new facility, creating 20,600 sq ft of flexible, modern office accommodation over three storeys. The new offices are set to be completed in November 2016.

The purpose-built accommodation will enable My Home Move to bring all of its Leicester-based employees together on one site and accommodate its growing workforce; following continuing business success, the company recently announced plans to recruit over 100 new members of staff during 2016. Last year, My Home Move helped over 50,000 people buy, sell or remortgage their homes.

Designed and built to the highest energy efficiency standards, the new Grove Park building will achieve an A-rated Energy Performance Certificate.

Doug Crawford, chief executive officer of My Home Move, says: “By investing in this brand new and purpose-built office we are able to provide an environment which enables our employees to thrive; and offers us the flexible space to develop over the coming months and years as we continue to grow our business and set ourselves apart from the rest of the market”

Stephen Pedrick-Moyle, joint managing director, Brackley Property Developments, says: “We are delighted to have the opportunity of working closely with both My Home Move and Stepnell in the delivery of this prestigious new office building on the hugely successful Grove Park. We are also working with My Home Move to deliver their fit works ensuring that they can occupy and operate from the office at the earliest opportunity.”

Stepnell operations and commercial manager Thomas Sewell says: “This impressive new office building will provide a superb working environment for My Home Move’s expanding team, enabling them to continue to provide the cutting-edge conveyancing services and exceptional customer care which have earned the company its reputation. We’re delighted to be bringing our own expertise in delivering high-performance buildings, built to the most exacting standards, to this exciting scheme.” The project will create training opportunities for the local community with Stepnell set to provide work experience placements on the development for construction students at Leicester College as well as work placements for local people organised through business charity Leicestershire Cares.
