About our building

Written by Paula Devine | 15 Jul 2013

The Business Centre was originally built as the headquarters of the then Vauxhall Iron Works in 1907 to designs by H B Cresswell.   Many visitors have memories of the building when it was owned by Vauxhall  and it is agreed to be one of the finest buildings in Luton.

The building, parts of which have a Grade 2 listing, is in the William and Mary styleVisitors to the building enter via the impressive galleried atrium with its double-flight turned baluster staircase which leads to the gallery.   The fine boardroom on our first floor is in 18th century style and boasts panelled doors, carved swags, bolection panelling and a decorative plaster ceiling.  This room can be rented to provide an impressive backdrop for your meeting.
