The debt management plans and individual voluntary arrangements firm has chosen Jackson House in Sale for its new headquarters. The company is taking 49,922 sq ft spread over three floors on a 10 year lease.
It will be relocating from Sale Point and will move more than 500 employees into the new offices in two phases, occupying 35,705 sq ft by April 2014 and 14,217 sq ft by July of this year.
Terry Sweeney, chief operating officer at Harrington Brooks, said; “Following recent growth, we needed larger office accommodation and wanted to stay in Sale, close to the town centre amenities and public transport links, which are vital for many members of our staff.
“Jackson House was the only building that could offer us the specification and space we needed plus further room for us to expand in the future. The building’s large floor plates are ideal for our operation and the CEG team has worked with us to help procure the fit out, ensuring the spaces is tailored to our requirements2.
Antonia Martin-Wright from CEG added; “For contact centre operators such as Harrington Brooks, the property is particularly well suited as it offers some of the largest floor plates in south Manchester and is in a very accessible location. It can be easily reached by tram or bus and is just a short drive from the M60 with plenty of on-site parking.”
Jackson House provides more than 100,000 sq ft of office accommodation. Current occupiers include IMB, Chep UK and AA Projects – Construction Consultants.
Canning O’Neill and Savills are the joint agents for the scheme.
Conrad O’Neill of Canning O’Neill commented “Following the Harrington Brooks letting, we still have over 30,000 sq ft of office space available to let in large floor-plates and have strong interest in some of this space”.
