Fast Web Media has returned to its roots by relocating to Manchester city centre.
We were based in the city centre when we started 21 years ago and now, after six years at MediaCityUK, we're setting up camp at the Waterhouse building, 41 Spring Gardens.
The building has been carefully refurbished, with an open plan, modern and highly collaborative design creating an outstanding working environment. It's a perfect fit for the next ambitious stage of our growth.
Stephen O’Malley, Head of Agency for Fast Web Media said: "MediaCityUK has been great, however it is time to head back to the city centre.
"Manchester continues to lead the way in digital innovation and it’s important FWM is operating at the centre of the action.
"We are proud of our history and achievements and will continue to develop the agency in order to be the best at what we do."
Waterhouse was designed in 1890 by noted Victorian architect Alfred Waterhouse, and has been a key part of Manchester ever since. Manchester Town Hall, Manchester Museum and London’s Natural History Museum are among his other famous creations.
In the late 19th Century, Waterhouse and the surrounding area was at the centre of the North West's financial industry, and Waterhouse was originally occupied by National Provincial Bank. It's now a Grade II listed building.
Though it lacks the gothic features typically associated with Waterhouse's work, the building does show a German influence drawn from his youth travelling through Europe.
Fast Web Media has previously taken up residence in Ducie House, Sunlight House and Armstrong House, as well as our office at Digital World Centre in MediaCityUK.
