A NEW suite of offices has been unveiled as part of the first stage of the £6.5 million redevelopment of Scarborough’s Spa Complex.
Other features to have been completed include a new stage area and stage lift at the historic venue.
The sales and marketing team, technical and catering management and the executive manager, have all moved into offices within the newly converted caretaker’s cottage – which was originally built at the back of the Spa in 1880 and had not been used for many years prior to the start of the redevelopment – and a total of 11 staff are situated in the offices,
Jo Ager, the Spa’s sales development manager, said: “The facility offers a modern professional environment to work in, which ultimately will support the delivery of an excellent standard of service to all our customers. I now look forward to the completion of the project and being able to promote the benefits of the Spa’s new, first class facilities.”
Cllr Derek Bastiman, Chairman of the Spa Project Board added: “In any redevelopment project of this scale, which involves a vast amount of complex construction work, it is always rewarding to see the first part completed.
“The new stage facilities will be the focal point of the Grand Hall when it is finished later this year and both customers and staff will benefit from the new office facilities. The recent confirmation that Yorkshire Forward has reinstated its £800,000 funding, echoes our own belief in the importance of this project.”
