Further to its letting to information technology company Clinisys earlier this year, Legal & General Investment Management (LGIM) has let a further 25,000 sq.ft across two floors for its Goldsworth Place office development in Woking.
Following an extensive internal and external upgrade to the building, multi-national consumer products group Colgate will be moving in following the completion of internal works in mid-2024.
The refurbishment of the building included providing a new arrival experience and sought-after amenity spaces with a café and break-out areas. The building has excellent health and wellbeing credentials with an Air Score Gold rating by AirRated, high levels of natural light, outdoor terraces, generous amounts of secure cycle spaces plus new shower and changing facilities. The building also benefits from excellent energy efficiencies including electric vehicle charging points and an EPC B rating.
Savills and Hurst Warne acted as the office leasing agents for the development.
