HomeLet made the move to its bespoke-built new home, Hestia House, during the first two weeks in December. Hestia House is just around the corner from the old offices - and has been built with HomeLet’s employees and customers at the forefront of its design.
Ian Fraser, HomeLet’s Managing Director, said: “HomeLet provided tenant referencing and specialist insurance to the lettings industry from Becor House for over 15 years. During this time, our business, products, services and number of employees developed and grew significantly.
Matt Moore, Property Director at Leicester-based Westleigh, said: “We’re pleased such an important local company as HomeLet has remained in Lincoln by moving to this new bespoke office at the Edge West Office Park. The site meets the needs of HomeLet that required a central location with on-site parking and very close access to both the city centre and transportation links.
“As with all commercial projects it is our intention to provide high quality office and industrial space in desirable locations - and therefore the opportunity for local businesses, such as HomeLet, to stay in an area.”
Mark Foster, Principal Planning Officer from City of Lincoln Council, said: “After working with Westleigh and their partners over a number of years to secure regeneration of this area, we are delighted to see development of this scale coming forward. This significant investment by HomeLet represents the company’s commitment to Lincoln as one of its major employers, and is very positive for the local economy.”
Ian Fraser continues: “I would like to thank everyone who has been involved with the build and move for their efforts. Moving to Hestia House will allow HomeLet to develop even further as a business and continue to provide an excellent experience to all customers. This is a great end to the year, and we’re very much looking forward to starting 2013 in HomeLet’s new home.”
