The Bank's old headquarters, at 18 Southernhay West is also managed by Turner Locker Barnfield, closed when it moved to Plymouth to cater for the Royal Navy. Having been for great many years the regional office for the South West of England No 11 Dix’s Field Exeter has now undergone an extensive refurbishment bringing it in line with current office space requirements. The space has the a numbers of ‘UPS’ with its own private street entrance and its own cloakroom and shower facilities.

Turner Locker Barnfield have had a long involvement with Notaries House which from both a historical and an architectural perspective is an important building near Exeter Cathedral. Its history is fascinating and its surviving architectural features are of a high quality. The property's story dates back at least to the first decades of the 15th century. Notaries House stands on the site of what was once part of a group of buildings occupied by members of the Cathedral's clergy and which were constructed between c1410 to c1430 Now currently in use as luxury commercial office and studio space Sarah Treble talks with Turner Locker Barnfield about her experience running her high quality wedding dress design business from the Georgian building. TLB: How did you find out about Notaries House Exeter? ST: "I saw the downstairs suite advertised on the Turner Locker website and was able to choose my suite while the building was being developed." TLB: Has being here helped your business ST: "The location is brilliant, the fact that it is between the Cathedral and Princesshay is perfect for me. "The actual building is what first drew me to it, I love Georgian buildings and it’s important to me that where I have my business is a building of character. People love it when they come in." Initially Sarah relocated her business from London to office space in Topsham -Devon. However it seems like the further move into commercial property so close to both the Cathedral and Princesshay in Exeter has been great for her. TLB: Does having a good location add value? ST: "It really does, I think it’s really important to have that feeling of style and luxury. "I take myself more seriously than I did when I was above the chemist in Topsham and I think other people do too."

The Generator is Exeter's first and biggest co-working space offering flexible and affordable office spaces in open plan environments and now The Generator has expanded into a second location in the city after teaming up with developers Yelverton Properties. Acting for Yelverton Properties Turner Locker Barnfield acquired one of Exeter’s iconic office investment buildings, Kings Wharf. Sat on the banks of the River Exe Kings Wharf with its distinctive glazed atrium is a wonderful combination of period charm and modern offices with ground floor retail and cafe units. Totalling some 26,000 sq. ft. the two former woollen warehouses were converted in circa 1990 to their current use. The formerly found fame as the backdrop to the hit 70’s television series the Onedin Line ad latter housed a fine Maritime Museum and at one point a craft centre King's Wharf makes a fantastic venue for the new co-working hub, where desk space can be rented by the day, week or month and aimed at individuals as well as small teams as Aquamarine Media have recently shown. The Generator was opened in Dix’s Field three years providing a modern alternative to both conventional serviced offices or the isolation of working from home.
