Penshaw View – a training provider and health and safety business – was the first company to move into The Beam, relocating from its offices elsewhere in the city centre having launched a region-wide search for a new base.
“We really needed some Grade A buildings,” says Chris Breckon, senior operations manager with the firm.
“We did look outside of Sunderland, but we were drawn back to The Beam. It is really in the heart of a mass development area in the city centre and even as the site develops, The Beam will always be the first building on such an iconic site. It means so much to people in Sunderland.
“The team at Penshaw View really enjoy coming to work here. It’s a massive open space. And it’s all new, and up-and-coming around here. I would highly recommend coming looking at The Beam.”
