Prior to our move, the firm had seen itself settled at Clarendon Street in Nottingham for 14 years, having existed in the city since 1993.

Like many other businesses, Directors Graham, David and Matthew made the decision during the Covid-19 pandemic to relocate away from Nottingham City Centre and since July 2021, we have been comfortably settled in our newly acquired premises at Brigade House, Albion Street in Beeston.

The Grade II listed former Mill building was built by Francis Wilkinson in 1892 and at the time was known to be the largest net curtain factory in Europe. the site has been converted to residential apartments and offices. The Beeston Boys Brigade (Nottingham 17th) troop met regularly in the space we now occupy in the early 20th century earning the building its name, Brigade House.

The open-plan layout of the office space has brought everyone in the firm together for the first time and we don’t mind saying that it took a little getting used to!

Thankfully, we are now very comfortable in our new surroundings and have found collaboration and open communication opportunities in this new layout to be a real asset to the company.

Beeston itself is an up-and-coming area that has seen millions of pounds of investment including the refurbishment of the shopping precinct, new and improved public transport connecting the town to the NET tram network, The Arc Cinema, more retailers, cafes and a gym.

Why not pop in for a chat and take a look around yourself?

In July 2022 Musson Liggins were involved in the valuation of the former Beales Department Store on Queen Street within the centre of Mansfield. The valuation formed a vital part of Mansfield District Council’s Levelling-Up Fund submission for the town in order to demonstrate their commitment to investment and regeneration to the government.

A successful Levelling-Up Fund submission could see a £20m injection of funds into Mansfield District Council’s ambitious, long-term town centre regeneration strategy which include plans to transform the former Beales Department Store building into a new multi-agency civic and community hub, going under the name of Mansfield Connect.

David Bladen, Director of Musson Liggins who carried out the valuation, said “It has been a pleasure to be involved in such an important project which will ultimately bring much-needed improvements to Mansfield Town Centre. The 163,000 ft² building over 6 floors brings with it a unique set of challenges. The Council has demonstrated that they have a strong vision for the future, and I think the project will be a resounding success.”

The landmark 1930s building is set to be modernized and extended to provide a new headquarters for the council and is expected to house a variety of other public, health and wellbeing, education, and enterprise services, alongside spaces for private sector investment.

Michael Robinson, Mansfield District Council’s Strategic Director welcomed Musson Liggins support and insight, commenting “An independent valuation of the building formed a vital part of the submission we made to government in early August and we were grateful that Musson Liggins was able to help us.  We look forward to a positive decision on Mansfield Connect sometime in the autumn later this year.”
