Campbell Driver Partnership Architects Move Into New Office at Northlight

02 May 2024 –– Testimonial

One of the new tenants to be welcomed into the final phases of Northlight's £34m redevelopment, the historic mill in Brierfield, is top architect practice Campbell Driver Partnership.

Working throughout the UK but primarily along the M65 corridor, the historic building provides a great location for their inspirational work, including Slater Terrace in Burnley and the new Thwaites Brewery facility near Mellor.

Northlight Industries comprises 29 spacious workshop units, ranging from 650 – 2000 sq ft. They're occupied by diverse businesses, from people handcrafting, such as Feature Lighting, to the Gawthorpe Textile Collection archive. Campbell Driver required a light, spacious office plus a private meeting room, and they were overjoyed to find a property as unique as Northlight.

Joe Barrowclough, Director at Campbell Driver Partnership, shared his excitement about the development: "We were looking for something that provided us with a creative studio to reflect what we do and what business we're working on. My first impressions of Northlight were absolutely blown away. I did get a chance to see the building prior to its redevelopment, and the change has been phenomenal. We're really impressed with the spaces that have been provided!

"There are great staff that work here as part of Store First and Business First in the reception and other areas of the building. There's a fantastic kitchen and hub. And with the other businesses that are currently filling up the spaces, there's a great community feel to Northlight. I'd recommend it to anybody who's a small start-up business or anybody who's well-established! We're looking to expand and recruit, and we're well-established in the area. We've worked up and down the M65 for the last 20 or 30 years, so it's good to have a central position within the area where we work, and hopefully, we'll continue our success!"

Managing Director Toby Whittaker added, "I've worked professionally with Campbell Driver Partnership, and they understand the importance of preserving heritage, so the new office was perfect for them. I'm really pleased we can add them to the Northlight community, and it's great they're so happy here!"
