Housebuilder moves into modern new office following £250,000 renovation

STAFF at an expanding home builder have moved into a new £250,000 office as the company continues its rapid growth.

Genesis Homes has invested significantly in creating a bespoke office base for its staff through the major renovation of a 6,000 square foot building on Penrith’s Gilwilly Industrial Estate, providing a more comfortable, spacious and modern office space for its growing number of employees.

The company has expanded considerably since being founded in 2017 and now employs more than 60 people.

Chief Executive Nicky Gordon said: “As Genesis Homes continues to grow, it became apparent to us that we needed a larger office space to make sure that everybody who comes into the office feels comfortable as they step through the doors.

“We made the decision to carry out the renovation of an adjacent building which would allow us to tailor the environment to our working needs, and provide a space which is extremely modern and crisp.

“Watching the renovation progress from our previous office windows over the months has only added to the excitement of the move, and our staff are really enjoying being in their new surroundings.

“For us, creating a purpose-built new office is not just an investment in infrastructure, it is an investment in our people and our business as a whole as we strive towards meeting our ambitions for further growth.”

The new, two-storey Genesis Homes HQ provides extra working space for employees to operate in. In addition, the building features ample meeting rooms and social spaces.

For Nicky, the creation of the new space represents the rapid progress the company has made over the years and also prepares the ground for further significant growth.

He said: “The journey Genesis Homes has been on since we formed the company in 2017 has been an incredible one and we are extremely proud with all we have achieved to date, particularly as we have had to weather some extremely turbulent years.

“But the hard work and expertise of the staff meant we were able to plan to overcome all obstacles and we want to reward the efforts of our employees along the way. I see this spacious, modern and high-tech new office as a way of showing our gratitude to the staff for their dedication and commitment.

“Genesis Homes has big ambitions to double in size in terms of properties built per annum by 2028, and to achieve this target we will need to add to our team and the larger office space allows us to accommodate this growth comfortably.”

Genesis Homes currently has properties for sale across Cumbria in Lazonby, Calthwaite, Rheda North Park, Penrith, Stainburn and Kendal, and in Halton, Lancashire.
