RSA Insurance, one of the UK’s largest insurers, has completed the relocation of its Halifax office from Dean Clough to the newly transformed Northgate House, where the company will be the sole occupant of the four-storey, 47,000 square-foot office space.
The move to Northgate House will help support the business’s adoption of a hybrid working model. The official opening of the new RSA office was marked by an event on-site attended by Holly Lynch MP, welcoming over 500 RSA employees to their newly created workspace in Halifax Town Centre.
RSA has had a presence and served the local area for over 50 years. The relocation to Norgate House forms part of its commitment to invest and recruit locally, giving back to the immediate community where it is situated.
The completed Northgate development will drive footfall of approximately 1,500 people per day into Halifax town centre, encouraging the recovery of the local economy.
Julie Butler, Business Leader at RSA Insurance in Halifax said:
“RSA has had a presence in Halifax for over 50 years and we are absolutely delighted to call Northgate House our new home. This office is a testament to our commitment to investing in Halifax and we are excited to play a role in the ongoing regeneration of the Town Centre. We are very much looking forward to operating our hybrid working model in this brand-new office space and welcoming local talent along the way.”
Holly Lynch, MP for Halifax said:
“The Northgate House project is an important step in the regeneration of the Halifax Town Centre and the economic recovery of local businesses. This cannot be achieved without the support of the local business community, and it is great to see RSA settling in their new home, seizing the opportunity to invest in Halifax’s future.”
