Tailored Workspaces goes live at Brindleyplace

New office solutions at city centre development.

Tailored Workspaces, an innovative new solution designed to provide businesses with support, flexibility and expertise when leasing and occupying office space, has launched at Brindleyplace, Birmingham.

Brindleyplace is home to 10,000 employees from international and local companies, including Deutsche Bank, Avison Young, Deloitte and Natwest. The destination attracts 4 million visitors a year who are drawn to its 22 bars, cafes and restaurants, shops, health and wellbeing facilities, a contemporary art gallery and public realm spaces.

Tailored Workspaces is a concept developed by Savills and Hines which provides three options to help support businesses with office fit-outs, installation of IT systems and the ongoing management of space with bespoke management services provided to meet tenants’ specific needs.

The product has been created specifically for Brindleyplace to ensure it supports future occupiers in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and in readiness for future investment opportunities with more companies looking to the regions outside of London for high-quality office space.

Businesses can choose to enlist the help of the specialist team at Brindleyplace to provide guidance and ongoing support throughout the fit-out process and occupation thereafter, with the cost of any additional services spread across the duration of the lease agreement.

Prospective tenants can either choose to lease space conventionally, where they take the office fit-out into their own hands; or appoint the Brindleyplace specialist team to help design and deliver the office fit-out with IT services; and as a third option, embrace the full provision of services including fit out, full infrastructure and ongoing office management services, designed specifically for their operational needs.

Tailored Workspaces can be used by tenants looking to lease available space at 3 Brindleyplace, 4 Brindleyplace and the Oozells Building, and it is suitable for businesses looking to house between 16 and over 250 workstations within their own private office environment.

Raj Rajput, Managing Director – Asset Management, UK, at Hines, said: “We have engaged with and listened to our own tenants, underpinned by industry research, to develop this product in partnership with Savills. We are well aware of the acute challenges facing businesses of all shapes and sizes across all sectors at the moment and have tried to make it as easy and stress free as possible for tenants who are trying to plan ahead for the future of their business.

“Tailored Workspaces at Brindleyplace gives occupiers choice. They are free to use as much, or as little, support as they need before, during and after they move into their new offices. The product is about matching the specific needs of tenants with a simple solution in respect of fit-out and the provision of services.

“Pre COVID-19, we were seeing a sizable shift from prospective tenants toward managed and serviced space, and Tailored Workspaces can cater for this by offering a bespoke solution to workplace needs.

“Brindleyplace is a superb location with a comprehensive range of amenities and services, restaurants and bars, leisure and health facilities, large open spaces and a canal side location which is ideal for wellbeing. We’re looking forward to welcoming new tenants to the estate and guiding them through the next chapter in their business journey.”

Charlie Wardroper, Head of Savills PIVOT, comments: “We are witnessing a structural shift in the office leasing market driven by occupiers, which has accelerated during the pandemic. Occupiers are becoming increasingly demanding and risk averse in their selection of new office space.

“Therefore, the attraction of a turnkey, bespoke service that takes away the upfront financial cost, operational risks and burden, coupled with flexible lease terms, are now key considerations in their decision making process.

“Tailored Workspaces at Brindleyplace offers the very essence of this with a range of workspace solutions, tailored to occupiers needs. Savills PIVOT is thrilled to be an integral part of this offering to help deliver ongoing success for the business community at Brindleyplace.”
