A Lancashire energy specialist is to more than triple its workspace and launch a cutting edge energy innovation centre following a six-figure investment into new premises.

Presented with the opportunity to take on the empty 10,000 sq ft space as its new headquarters in Nelson, Businesswise Solutions set about bringing its corporate, city inspired vision to life, complete with energy trading floor, auditorium and gym.

Its unique innovation centre will take customers on an energy journey, demonstrating the latest new technology driving the industry, such as battery power, demand side response and blockchain.

The expansion falls perfectly in line with the company’s drive to double its workforce this year and increase turnover to £5m by 2020.

The building, on the Lomeshaye Industrial Estate, has an impressive pedigree, previously being home to telecoms giant, Daisy Group.

Frazer Durris, Managing Director of Businesswise Solutions, said:

We have long been considering a move to bigger premises; an open plan, contemporary space which would bring the whole team together and facilitate our ambitious growth plans.

“We’ve been working closely with architects and tradespeople to transform it into a modern, welcoming and inspiring space for people to work and visit.

“And it’s more than just an office; it’s a hub of education and advice for businesses looking to improve the way they buy and manage their energy.”’

The move will see Businesswise play host to a number of informative and educational energy events and recruitment days in coming months for businesses across the North West and beyond.

Staff too, will benefit from working in modern, inspirational surroundings, as well having use of their own gym and games area to utilise during downtime.

Frazer concluded: “It’s a really exciting time to join the business as we continue to strengthen our teams to support significant UK and European expansion.”
