Marble Hall Renovation wins regional property award

A project which saw the redevelopment of the iconic Marble Hall building in Derby City Centre, part-funded by the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership, has been dubbed Regeneration and Restoration Project of the Year in the East Midlands, at a recent awards ceremony.

The East Midlands Property Dinner 2016, which took place yesterday evening (Sept 29), looked to recognise various developments across Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire, with awards being given for a number of categories, including Construction, Architectural Excellence and Sustainable Development. Derby’s Marble Hall building, which has recently undergone a project to transform it into 42 high quality offices, won the award for Regeneration and Restoration Project of the Year. The project was part funded with £1.5million from the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership.

D2N2 is the Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) for Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire, and works to grow its areas economy, with the aim of creating 55,000 new jobs in ten years (2013-2023) and making the D2N2 area a great place to live, work and invest.

As part of this mission it ran a Growing Places Fund (GPF) programme, which is a loans scheme set-up to provide businesses and organisations with funding to kick-start development projects, which directly create economic growth and jobs; particularly in the LEP area’s key sectors such as construction. To date GPF has approved 13 loans worth a total of £16.6m.

The Marble Hall development is one of a number of projects which together make up the Connect Derby initiative, which aims to bring together a number of sites – Friar Gate Studios, Kings Chambers, Sadler Bridge Studios, Riverside Chambers, Marble Hall and Shot Tower – to provide small businesses, entrepreneurs and SMEs with the necessary IT infrastructure and business support to help them grow.
