Sales promotion specialists sold on Newcastle’s Quorum Park
September 10, 2021
A growing national sales promotion consultancy is investing in new office space at Newcastle’s Quorum Park to accommodate expansion amid strong demand for its expertise and services.
Metrisk has taken 750 sqft. of space at Neon, as part of a 2-year lease that will provide access to quality workspace to develop its North East operations.
The move comes as the Leeds-based firm, which helps high street retailers anticipate consumer buying trends and develop promotional campaigns, looks to expand, creating 18 new sales and consultancy roles at the park.
In a separate move, an additional 700 sq. ft. of space at Neon has also been let by agents Avison Young and Cushman & Wakefield to an undisclosed occupier.
Both deals mean that the 105,000 sq. ft. building is almost at full capacity, with current tenants Verisure, SSCL, Rambol and NRG all moving to the site in 2020.
Metrisk opted for Quorum Park to accommodate its expanding regional platform, offering flexible open-plan floor space with good transport links and onsite parking with access to nearby local services and food and drink outlets.
Adrian Harris, the firm’s operations director, said the company has only been fully trading for 12 months but is rapidly expanding and wanted to benefit from a high calibre North East workforce as it eyes a seven-figure turnover by the end of the current financial year.
He added: “We were attracted to Quorum over and above other Newcastle offices due to its excellent location and local facilities. We are expanding fast and will be creating new jobs and opportunity for local people as we develop our regional presence.
“Despite the current economic climate, the scale Quorum offers and the surrounding space makes it feel an incredibly comfortable and attractive place to work, which in turn helps significantly to recruit a skilled workforce.”
Tony Wordsworth, director at Avison Young, joint letting agent at Quorum, said: “This is another big boost for Neon and Quorum Park, which continues to go from success-to-success as a location for businesses looking to take advantage of quality, flexible commercial space with excellent infrastructure and transport links.”
Offices at Quorum Park meet the requirements of a post lockdown-returning workforce with space that can be adapted as technology evolves, working patterns change and personnel come and go. They also offer the capacity to design a fit-out that reflects the size and working ethos of the individual workforce rather than asking people to adapt to the building in which they work.
Last month Quorum Park launched its new promotional video to showcase the park’s wide range of amenities which include sports facilities, gym, nursery and restaurant as well as an extensive events programme.
