Managing director Ian Grantham said: "This division has a large, discerning client base requiring high levels of service and its contracts include Abu Dhabi 'The World', Wembley Stadium, Harrods, Fortnum and Mason, Twickenham and Lords and Terminal 5."
The investment in Lenton Lodge includes not only offices but also a high-level hospitality suite which will allow prestige clients to enjoy part of Nottingham's heritage.
Lenton Lodge was originally a gatehouse to Wollaton Hall and sits in a prominent position on Derby Road in the City boundary.
Chek Whyte Industries acquired the property two years ago and carried a high quality refurbishment providing 3,324 sq ft of offices and a large amount of on site car parking.
It is the latest in a line of high-profile refurbishments of Listed and Victorian buildings, other projects including Bunny Hall and Stanford Hall. Chek Whyte Industries has also been refurbishing the former Trent FM offices on Castlegate, a 10,000 sq ft Grade II Listed building overlooking St Nicholas Church.
This refurbishment is designed at providing a high quality professional office in this classical four storey Georgian former townhouse, with the building due for completion in the spring.
John Proctor, at FHP, said: "The Gatehouse is possibly one of the most well known buildings in Nottingham.
"Nottingham's growth in the 20th century detached The Gatehouse from Wollaton Park and Wollaton Hall. Chek Whyte Industries have completed a sensitive refurbishment project introducing contemporary modern finishes where possible and enhancing the original features of the property. It is great to see this historic landmark building being brought back to life."
