Group First House

In 2014 this centre was completely transformed into prestigious office space and became home to the head office of Group First - the parent company of Business First and responsible for the development of each of the Business Centres.

Group First House overlooks the green pastures of the Ribble Valley and River Calder providing a tranquil atmosphere within the ultra modern office suites. Located off junction 9 of the M65, this centre offers larger space for expanding companies, ranging from 850sq/ft – 12,0000sq/ft.

The luxury office interior consists of top of the range leather seating - and SieMatic kitchens were installed for corporate companies to enjoy.

On opening this centre many companies enrolled as tenants to be the first to experience the platinum service from the leading office providers, Business First.
