Causeway Technologies aims to create up to 100 new state-of-the-art construction technology sales jobs at its new regional hub in Birkenhead.
Causeway’s new office at Peel L&P’s Hythe in Wirral Waters, Birkenhead was opened yesterday (Wednesday 8 March 2023) by British hockey star Sam Quek MBE.
The gold medal-winning Olympian and TV personality cut the ribbon alongside Phil Brown, Causeway’s chief executive, and Trevor Steven, Everton’s legendary midfielder and now Causeway’s mental health ambassador.
It marks another milestone in the growth of the business which secured a major £120 million investment in 2021 to boost the continued development of its software for construction.
The Wirral Waters office ties in with the look and feel of Causeway’s existing centre of engineering excellence in Middlesbrough, its offices in Ireland and India, and its headquarters in Gerrards Cross. The hub is already a base for 32 Causeway colleagues and provides space for up to 100.
Leisa Docherty, chief people officer at Causeway, said:
“As Causeway’s sales hub and centre of excellence in the north, the new office at Wirral Waters provides a great place to work with excellent facilities for our growing team. The space has been designed to reflect its history as being home to the former Seacombe Smalt Works, established in the early nineteenth century, with a nod to the local region.
“We’re excited to continue creating jobs and building our talent pipeline in Merseyside. Our aim is to support the local community, not only as an employer but also with our CSR plans by enabling employees to volunteer in support of the local community. We have some great opportunities for entry-level sales development positions, which will be based at our fantastic new office.”
Phil Brown, chief executive of Causeway, said:
“As we continue to develop our platform, our strategic priority is to be at the forefront of the digitalisation of construction to help companies not only streamline their processes but also lower their environmental impact. It is clear that the construction industry urgently needs and wants good technology solutions, so the future is very bright for those who join this sector. They will be the changemakers in this exciting industry.”
Richard Mawdsley, director of development for Wirral Waters at Peel L&P, said:
“Hythe really is appealing to exciting and innovative businesses that see sustainability and technology as core parts of their growth strategy. This is exactly why we created Hythe, to attract ground-breaking and environmentally conscious businesses and entrepreneurs to the Wirral, helping to accelerate growth and attract economic prosperity. We are very pleased to welcome the Causeway team to Hythe and we look forward to seeing the growth and success they achieve from their new premises.”
The new hub is expected to create a strong draw for candidates for Causeway’s sales roles.
Hythe is among the top 10 percent of all buildings for its green credentials, achieving a BREEAM Excellent rating by including low carbon procurement initiatives and innovative construction techniques which set high standards in environmental sustainability. Efficient building systems, sustainable urban drainage, the installation of photovoltaic panels, electric car charging points, cycling facilities, and future provisions for bike charging points all contributed to this achievement.
Fitted out with the latest in interactive technology within a fresh and modern, natural design, the sophisticated office space also includes a vibrant central area for collaboration, multifunctional spaces for welcoming clients, meeting rooms named after local heroes, Liverpool-centric artwork, a sustainable mix of recycled furniture and lower carbon materials in interiors, and high acoustic comfort and biophilic design to boost employee wellbeing.
