Reflex Marine, a global leader in safe marine transfer solutions, has begun work on its new headquarters.
The new facility in Shortlanesend – which will replace the current company HQ in Heron Way, Truro – will offer Reflex Marine the capacity to expand to meet increasing demand for its services as the company moves towards a period of projected growth.
The relocation involves partly converting the Grade Two-listed Old School building, dating from the 19th Century, into high quality, sustainable office space.
CEO and co-founder of Reflex Marine, Phillip Strong, said: “This is a very exciting time for our business. The last few years have seen rapid growth and we wish to be recognised as one of the best employers in west Cornwall.
“As a company we wear our social and environmental values on our sleeve and we feel that the creation of this new high quality office space will reflect that. We also aim to engage positively with the people of Shortlanesend and we hope to add real value to their community.”
Designs to restore and refurbish the Old School building were jointly created by Barcelona-based Zest Architects and local Truro-based architect, Barlow Stott.
