A FORMER mill which has undergone a multi-million pound regeneration will welcome two more businesses to the transformed development.

Adept Civil and Structural Consulting Engineers has expanded into new flagship premises within Sunny Bank Mills, Farsley, after signing a five-year lease on a 3,700 square foot office suite. The company, previously based in Pudsey, moved to the building in 2014,

It was founded in 2007 by business partners, Erol Erturan, Matthew Ramsden and Richard Parker, and now employs 34 people with an annual turnover of approximately £2 million.

“Since relocating from Pudsey to Sunny Bank Mills just over three years ago, we have continued expanding and had outgrown our previous office space," said Managing Director Erol Erturan.

"We were keen to stay at Sunny Bank Mills, which has been a fantastic base for us, and The 1912 Mill really appealed because it’s full of stunning architectural features and offers an inspirational working environment."

William Gaunt, joint managing director of Edwin Woodhouse & Co Ltd, which owns Sunny Bank Mills, added: “Adept is an innovative and forward-thinking company which makes it a valuable part of the business community at Sunny Bank Mills, so it’s been a privilege to be able to facilitate the team’s expansion into The 1912 Mill. We’re due to welcome several more businesses into Sunny Bank Mills over the coming months and have units available, ranging in size between 390 to over 7,000 sq ft that will appeal to creative and progressive businesses, making it an exciting time for us.”
