Quorum Park has secured new tenants as North East companies invest in better workplace facilities to accommodate growing workforces.
Energy, projects and traffic management recruitment specialist Mac Projects International and property management firm Luke Capital Group have taken 3,000 sq. ft. and 1,100 sq. ft. respectively at Quorum Park’s Q11 office building at Benton Lane in Newcastle.
The lettings are the latest success for Q11 which is rapidly approaching full capacity with only two small suites left available, as both companies reveal that they have relocated to Quorum to accommodate ambitious business development and expansion plans.
Mac Projects, which has relocated from Silverlink and currently employs 14 people, is recruiting to meet demand and expects to create a further eight new jobs at Quorum Park in the next six months. CEO Mark Cummings said: “Quorum Park is a great move for us, meeting our need for a modern office space to accommodate growth and is an attractive place to work for existing and potential employees. We have been very impressed by the facilities and the professionalism of the support team. The modern approach to the internal common areas and the park’s general facilities is second to none.”
Joint letting agents Avison Young and Cushman & Wakefield acted on behalf of landlord Shelborn Asset Management in securing the deals. Tony Wordsworth, director at Avison Young said: “Last year we launched the new collaborative workspace within Q11, which includes boardroom style-meeting rooms and relaxation pod areas, all of which have gone down very well with occupiers looking for flexibility and quality.
“It’s been a very busy 6 months at Quorum thanks in part to the letting of Q12 to Verisure and the latest lettings at Q11 which combine to leave less than 29,000 sq.ft currently available across the park.”
Employing around 25 staff in the UK and with an office in Dubai, Luke Capital Group is also experiencing a post lockdown bounce and will continue to diversify and add revenue streams from its new North East base.
Ryan Luke, CEO and founder said: “Moving to Q11 has already had a great impact on our business as we brought our team members back together following months of remote working due to Covid. Quorum certainly ticks all the boxes with plenty of space for growth, free parking – which is important for staff – and a modern environment that allows people to thrive.”
