AN accountancy firm has moved its workforce to a brand-new facility on the Granby Industrial Estate.

Albert Goodman has relocated its 29 staff from its previous seafront location to Leanne House on the Granby Industrial Estate, based on the outskirts of Weymouth.

Commenting on the relocation, Mark Wallis, Director and Head of the Albert Goodman Weymouth office, explained the move will provide greater scope for future job creation.

He said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have found the right premises that ticks all the boxes in terms of location, additional space and facilities. Not only does it give us more scope for future job creation, but it allows us to operate from professional premises that accurately reflect our reputation as a leading Weymouth accountancy firm.”

Further discussing the move, he said: “We’re confident we will receive the full support and approval from our clients and the local business and professional community.”

Richard Bugler, Managing Partner at Albert Goodman, added: “We’ve built a tremendous reputation in Weymouth over the last eight years and this latest investment reaffirms our continued commitment in the town. I wish Mark and the Weymouth team all the very best as they enjoy their new surroundings and focus on providing the very best levels of client service.”

The firm says Leanne House delivers larger and more modern looking premises with excellent transport links and parking. They added that the open plan style of working is expected to encourage collaborative working in order to deliver a better client service as well as affording a more modern and comfortable environment for its staff.

Leanne House is owned by DJ Property, one of South Dorset’s leading providers of commercial property. Mildren Construction were awarded the contract to completely refurbish the offices to the very high level required by Albert Goodman.

Mickey Jones of DJ Property said: “We are delighted to be able to provide such high quality office space to Albert Goodman and welcome them as a customer. I wish the team many successful years of trading from Leanne House, which is located on Weymouth’s cycle path network, making green travel a real option.”
