Lancashire County Council has refurbished part of its offices in the centre of Preston.Advertisement
Next to County Hall is the Christ Church Precint, which is 40 years old.
The electrics, heating and ventilation systems have all been ripped out and replaced.
A lot of staff are being relocated into the Preston offices from other offices as the county council looks at selling off a number of other buildings.
It estimates £1.2 million a year will be saved through these changes.
County Councillor Jennifer Mein, leader of the county council, said: “These improvements are long overdue. Some of the systems in the building had been in place for around 40 years.
“As part of these changes, we’re encouraging our staff to work more flexibly and use technology to be more efficient and cost-effective, while continuing to provide services for people in Lancashire.
“The work that has been done in this building shows our continued commitment to the city centre in Preston. Across the county, our offices provide jobs and other benefits to the local economy.”
