Professional services firm PwC has struck a deal to move its offices from St George’s Street in Norwich to the St James Place business quarter currently being developed by Jarrold.

The move, which will be completed in the summer, means that PwC will be a key tenant alongside a growing cluster of other professional services firms including Barclays, Mills & Reeve, Grant Thornton and Birketts.

Chris Maw, PwC Norwich office senior partner said: “We are very pleased to reaffirm our commitment to Norwich and the wider region by becoming part of the fantastic complex taking shape at St James Place.

“The Jarrold’s development that we are moving into is of the highest quality and will not only provide a creative working space for our people, but also first-class meeting rooms for use by our clients and the wider local community.

“We are all very excited by the office move and the Norwich based team of over 100 partners and staff has been heavily involved in the design of our new accommodation.

“Personally, I am delighted that the firm shares my view that Norwich is a growth engine for the East of England and our investment in this new office is testament to that.”

Christopher Doggett, Jarrold group finance director, said: “It’s great news that PwC has chosen our St James development as the location for this important strategic move.

“Together with Barclays Bank, law firms Birketts and Mills & Reeve and Grant Thornton, PwC will become part of a vibrant professional cluster that has made our site the premier location for business in the city centre.

“The fact that the Jarrold’s development continues to attract tenants of the size, calibre and international standing of PwC demonstrates the continuing attractions of the city centre with its accessibility to all the amenities and transport links.”
