Work to start on new Ongo HQ
Work will start on building the new Ongo HQ in Scunthorpe's Church Square in April 2017.
When the work starts, it will create 50 construction jobs.
The new building will also bring an extra 300 people into the town centre, which supports North Lincolnshire Council’s vision to regenerate the town centre.
The council’s design team will design and build the new high quality office block and will then lease it to us. The lease on our current head office will be coming to an end and an alternative location for our HQ will be needed.
David Hilditch, Chair of Ongo Partnership, said: “Moving our headquarters to Scunthorpe town centre will bring more investment in the town and help support the regeneration of Church Square.
“We have always had a presence in the town centre with our Customer Centre on Cole Street and Crosby Employment on Laneham Street, but it will make a difference to bring all our 300 staff members into a more central location."
A new, modern building will be more cost effective than our current head office on Normanby Road, Scunthorpe. It will also be more easily accessible for tenants.
