Wates Construction held a topping out ceremony to celebrate the latest milestone in the creation of a new HQ for leading software company The Access Group.

The new HQ is set to generate £1.6million a year for frontline Leicestershire County Council services and create at least 500 jobs.

The Access Group employs more than 2,000 people, serving over 20,000 UK companies. More than a third of its workforce is based in the Midlands.

The project is due to be open in Autumn 2020. Work is being delivered by Wates Construction via Major Works UK, part of the Scape National Construction framework.

“In addition to marking a significant build milestone, this event presented an opportunity to celebrate the truly collaborative approach all parties have taken in helping to bring this landmark project to fruition.”
