Marston’s redevelopment to boost Chapel Ash

Marston’s have this week started work on the redevelopment of Marston’s House at their Chapel Ash site, which includes partial demolition of the building fronting the Chapel Ash Ring Road island. The work is expected to take 11 months, with 500 office staff temporarily relocated to Coniston House across the road, giving them a prime view of their new home whilst under construction.

Work on Marston House is now underway

Marston’s House is a 1960s office block and was the management hub for the brewer and its 1,800 pubs nationwide.

Marston’s chief executive Ralph Findlay said: “This is a really exciting project for our business. We have been based on this site in Wolverhampton for nearly 140 years and are very proud of our heritage in the city. The new look offices will be preparing our business for the future as one of the country’s leading pub retailers and brewers.

“We wanted to demonstrate our commitment to Wolverhampton, both to our people who work here and the city itself.”

The redevelopment work at Marston’s is just one such scheme in the Chapel Ash area as a whole. On Merridale Road, the former Charles Clark building is undergoing £4 million worth of development work which will see luxury apartments and a supermarket built on the site which has been empty for fifteen years.
