Royal London House, the new office of mutual insurer Royal London, has been officially opened in Alderley Park, Cheshire today by Chancellor of the Exchequer, The Right Honourable Rishi Sunak MP.

It is set within Alderley Park which hosts hospitality and sporting facilities, a conference centre and more than 400 acres of parkland.

 The building has achieved a Very Good sustainability rating from the Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM), due to the environmentally positive aspects of the building, including its energy efficiency electric and vehicle charging points . In addition, by reusing furniture and donating to charities, nothing went to landfill when converting the building.

 Art students from Manchester Metropolitan University contributed pieces of work, representing the spirit of Royal London, to decorate the building which are displayed in the foyer and the meeting rooms.

 Kevin Parry OBE, Chairman of Royal London, said: “I am thrilled to be opening Royal London House after four years of hard work and collaboration across the business. Inclusivity has been central to the design of the building to ensure we provide a positive workplace experience.

 “It is wonderful to see so many people safely back in an office environment, creating the energy you only achieve by being in the same place. Royal London House is a strong representation of the purpose-driven modern mutual we are today, while maintaining our strong ties to the North West, which date back over 160 years.”

 Chancellor of the Exchequer, The Right Honourable Rishi Sunak MP said: “I am delighted to open Royal London House which is a great example of how growing companies can choose to upgrade existing structures sustainably, while continuing to support local communities.”
