Chubb Fire & Security Limited held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the opening of offices in Blackburn. The new building will house 400 employees from Chubb and affiliates of Otis UK and Carrier Controls UK, and serve as a showcase for all three brands. Pictured are Tracy Cordes and Craig Forbes.
Tracy Cordes, managing director of Chubb Fire & Security said: “With this new building, we have created a safer, smarter and more sustainable environment that will be a great place for our employees and their colleagues to work. The building is on track to achieve a BREEAM very good rating, so it will be amongst the top 25 per cent of buildings for sustainability in the UK.”
The development, which saw the demolition of three Chubb buildings on the Shadsworth Business Park, has resulted in a modern building for employees working in information technology, finance, supply chain and customer service. It is also the new home for two specific businesses: Chubb Systems – which does enterprise-wide installations including critical infrastructure – and Chubb Community Care, including their research, development and engineering.
Craig Forbes, finance director, Chubb said: “This is the culmination of many years of hard work for the Chubb team, from planning through to build and relocation. We are delighted with the results and believe it greatly enhances our credentials as a good local Blackburn employer. We are also extremely grateful for the support of the council, local community and contractors who have made it possible.”
