All the latest from Gilkes
Significant progress of the refurbishment work at Gilkes head office in Kendal is now clearly visible with the new sections of the building taking shape. The project which is funded through a successful Regional Growth Fund (RFG) bid shows Gilkes commitment to preserve the future of the Canal Head site and their presence as one of Kendal's most significant employers.
The project will provide a state of the art research and development suite, reception area and offices, providing space for the entire workforce of 250 staff.
While work on the roof continues, traffic control is in place due to the size and volume of vehicles. We are trying everything we can to limit the effect on local people and businesses and the lights will be removed when no work is being carried out and after working ours. Every attempt is being made to keep delays to a minimum. This will shortly be a thing of the past as the roof is now 90% complete.
