A world-class communications software company is set to reveal its plans to create an impressive new headquarters near the centre of Enfield, north London.
Proposals by Metaswitch to create a 66,000 sq ft office building for up to 500 employees at a one-acre site in Genotin Road will be unveiled at a public consultation later this month.
Representatives of Metaswitch and development partner Stoford Developments will be available to discuss the proposals during the consultations at The Dugdale Centre in London Road, Enfield, on Thursday, May 24, from 2.30pm to 7.30pm.
Local residents and other interested parties are invited to attend to learn more about the development. Following the consultation, comments will be considered and a planning application will be submitted to Enfield Town Council.
Metaswitch is a world-leading communications software company. The company develops commercial and open-source software solutions that enable network operators to build, scale, innovate and account for communication services.
It currently has offices at three sites in the region. The new facility will consolidate them into one new headquarters.
Metaswitch chief executive officer Martin Lund said: “We have built our global success on a long-term presence in Enfield and we are keen to invest further in the town centre, with the potential to create more employment opportunities. I would encourage all stakeholders, businesses and residents to come along and express their views at the public consultation.”
Stoford director Gerard Ludlow said: “Metaswitch is making a major commitment to its future in Enfield, which is great news for the area as it means more jobs for local people. This will be a very high quality development. We will be delivering a Grade A building and we’ll be seeking to achieve the BREEAM Excellent standard.
“We would encourage anyone that may be interested in learning more about the development, or who would like to express their opinions, to come along to the consultation so that their views can be taken into account by the planning committee.”
