Henry Boot has appointed ADT Workplace to fit-out the Isaacs Building, its new Head Office in Sheffield which the business is set to relocate to later this year.


ADT Workplace will fit-out the 12,800 sq. ft. of space taken by Henry Boot across the top three floors of the Isaacs Building, providing its team, clients and partners with a contemporary, sustainable, and flexible headquarters.


The Isaacs Building, located on Charles Street was built in 1904-05 and has been newly-refurbished to provide over 38,375 sq. ft. of high-quality workspace.

We are confident that with the creative design work by Incognito and diligent fit--out by ADT Workplace, the Isaacs Building will prove to be the ideal headquarters fit for the long-term future of Henry Boot.”
