UK telephone answering service providers Moneypenny moved last September to a glamorous new headquarters located on the Western Gateway site in Wrexham, North Wales. Including its own pub, providing free breakfasts for staff members, and even an on-site treehouse of all things, the new offices are certainly a sight to behold.

Now, the headquarters has been named as one of the best workplaces in the UK, being recognised by the British Council for Offices (BCO) awards programme, which aims to ‘set the standard for excellence’ in the regional and national office sector.

Moneypenny received the accolade of ‘Best Corporate Workplace in Northern England and North Wales’ during a ceremony at The Lowry Hotel in Salford.

Coming in at an approximate cost of £15million and accommodating up to 1,000 staff members, the building was designed to be the “happiest workplace in the UK”.

Ed Reeves, co-founder and director of Moneypenny, said of the given praise, “We are immensely proud of our new headquarters and to have it recognised by the BCO as one of the best offices in the country only affirms this.

“Together with AEW, we’ve not only created a space that stands out as a pioneering office design, but also reflects and encourages the wellbeing and culture of everyone who works here.”

In reaching their decision to award Moneypenny the prestigious accolade, the BCO judges cited the ample social space provided within the building, the central placement of the reception and common areas, an abundance of natural light, and a generally inclusive atmosphere about the place as the primary factors.

AEW Architects, who worked with Moneypenny to create the new headquarters, also commented on the award via their Director, Andy Rainford. He stated that, “From a design perspective, the BCO awards are the ultimate measure of quality for office buildings.

“We were very lucky to be given the chance by Ed and the team at Moneypenny to bring their ideas and vision to life and we are extremely proud to have been part of the team.

“The award, which is a recognition of everyone involved, is the icing on the cake and we look forward to the National Awards in October.”
