PLANS for an impressive office refurbishment – including the creation of a new rooftop terrace – have been approved.

Warrington Borough Council has granted planning permission for the renovation of Dominion House on Daten Avenue in Birchwood.

The site, which has been vacant since November, will become known as Element once the works are completed.

Warrington Guardian:

This will include the creation of a ground-floor terrace, a roof terrace with lighting and cladding to the exterior of the building.

It is anticipated that the proposals will also encompass a ‘stylish’ new main entrance and reception, a ‘high quality’ café bar with a business lounge, a concierge service and a gym.

Warrington Guardian: New CGIs have been released showing what Element, formerly known as Dominion House, will look like once completed.

Paul McCann of Bridge Properties, the firm behind the scheme, said in October: “The market is pointing to occupiers now requiring better quality office space with excellent on-site amenities in order to attract employees back to the office.

“Everything at Element has been designed with that in mind.”

Mark Canning, director of agents Canning O’Neill, added: “Element is set to raise the bar for office accommodation in not only Birchwood, but the whole of the regional out of town office market – providing inspirational office accommodation fit for a post pandemic world.

“With floors of up to 14,070sq ft, the top floor also has the opportunity to include of a 3,186sq ft mezzanine area leading onto a private, south-facing roof terrace.”

WBC’s consent for the development was given on Thursday, December 23.
