Ada Lovelace House

Ada Lovelace House

 

New, high-quality office space is now available to entrepreneurs and businesses in Nottinghamshire – thanks to a £280,000 investment by Ashfield District Council and the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership.

Formerly Ashfield Urban Council Offices, and more recently a police station, the building on Urban Road in the North Nottinghamshire town, is a well-known local landmark, named after Lord Byron’s daughter Ada Lovelace. The redevelopment of Ada Lovelace House has created 1,658 sq. ft. of space for start-up businesses and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), after extensive renovation works by local construction company, Robert Woodhead Ltd.

The £280,000 project was funded with £140,000 from Ashfield District Council and £140,000 from the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership’s Local Growth Fund allocation – used to fund infrastructure projects, which attract investment and create jobs across Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire – as part of D2N2’s mission to create 55,000 new jobs in ten years (2013-2023). D2N2 money for the Ada Lovelace House redevelopment was agreed by the D2N2 Infrastructure and Investment Board.

Ada Lovelace House offers seven high-quality offices with shared communal space and open-plan meeting areas. Interest has already been expressed in four of the seven units, and an official opening of the building is due to take place in October (2017) on Ada Lovelace day.
