Sirius Minerals Plc has signed a deal to move its headquarters to Prospect House – the iconic, former Scarborough Building Society building which stands at the town’s southern gateway.
The Company is fast outgrowing its current office nearby at Manor Garth on the Eastfield business estate. It hopes to move into the building by the summer, following a complete refurbishment.
With a team of 70 people already based in its Scarborough office, Sirius is expecting its head office staff to grow to 160 this year. This will also be supplemented by additional contractor teams.
The Prospect House building has stood idle for a number of years. It was constructed for Scarborough Building Society in 2002 but was vacated following a merger with Skipton Building Society in March 2009. The building, which sits in a site covering nearly four acres, has the capacity to accommodate Sirius’ growing team for the long term.
Gareth Edmunds, External Affairs Director, commented:
“We are very pleased to be able to secure a building that meets the needs of our business. We have been located in the area since the launch of our Polyhalite project and this is a further demonstration of our commitment to the region."
