Part of Tarmac, the UK's leading building materials and construction solutions business, it will be occupying the 11,000 square feet first floor of the £10.6 million city centre development.

It means all 3 floors of top grade office space in i10 have been fully let in just 6 months of the building being completed.

Tarmac has a long history with Wolverhampton, and has been looking for a suitable location for its Building Products, as well as maintaining a central location to serve its national network of operations.

It will employ around 100 staff at the site and will join worldwide expert in water treatment, Ovivo, and award winning home builder and regeneration specialist, Countryside, as commercial office tenants at i10.

Managing Director, Mark Joel, said: "The modern i10 facility is a great location for Tarmac's Building Products divisional headquarters and offers a modern office environment.

"It has excellent public transport links for employees, as well as good connections to Tarmac's corporate HQ near Birmingham International station."

Councillor John Reynolds, Cabinet Member for City Economy, added: "It is great news for Wolverhampton that Tarmac's Building Products business has opted to stay in the city.

"To have fully let the commercial office space at i10 so quickly shows the strong demand for quality office space in the city.

"The i10 development certainly has the wow factor and its location at the gateway to the city for people getting off the national transport network has been a major selling point.

"i10 has raised the bar for the provision of top grade office space in the city and the council is now looking at ways to develop more."

Greene King, Superdrug and Kaspa's Desserts have already filled 4 of the 6 ground floor retail units.

Wider Interchange development will include a new state of the art railway station and the Metro line extension, which will include a new stop at the station.

Work has started on the refurbishment and extension of the railway station car park and the new bus station is already in use.
