The Mansfield completes major investment

Posted onPosted on 8th Sep

Mansfield Building Society staff are celebrating as they return to the office following a refurbishment of its Mansfield-based headquarters.

The investment in the Society’s Regent Street HQ follows similar investment in new branch premises in the heart of the town’s Market Place.

The new flagship branch opened its doors to customers in July 2020.

Subsequent refurbishment of its head office has seen the society convert its former branch premise into a modern, accessible, open plan mortgage processing centre.

The society said the move demonstrated The Mansfield’s commitment to the town in which it was founded more than 150 years ago.

Mansfield Mayor Andy Abrahams formally opened the refurbished HQ alongside the society’s chief executive, Paul Wheeler, and Board chair Alison Chmiel.

Paul said the coronavirus pandemic gave the society the opportunity to refurbish the head office whilst most colleagues were working from home. The refit will enable it to meet ambitious growth plans whilst reinforcing its commitment to the community it has served since 1870:

“Successive years of growth meant that we effectively outgrew our premises,” he explained.

“The new Market Place branch provided a golden opportunity to secure a prominent central location to better serve our members whilst freeing up space to support our continued growth.

“The new open-plan mortgage processing centre enables us to meet our corporate objectives without compromising our commitment to Mansfield and the local community.

“The combination of our new Market Place branch and refurbished Head Office premises will play an integral part in delivering the society’s continued success.”

Mayor Andy Abrahams added: “The society’s 150-year history makes it such a valued and trusted asset for our town with an outstanding commitment to serving the community.

“It’s brilliant that our local building society was able to use the pandemic lockdown as the perfect opportunity to expand.

“It’s great that the society is going from strength to strength in such a way that it now needs bigger premises. Where better to be placed than in the heart of the town centre.”
