The redeveloped BVT offices located on Oak Tree Lane, are to be called Elizabeth Court in honour of George Cadbury's widow, Dame Elizabeth Cadbury.

Although a much larger building than the one it replaces, the new development still retains the original frontage of the building and the new large structure at the rear of the frontage has been designed in a fairly complementary style.
