Our commercial agency team identified and negotiated the acquisition of the new main office for our long term client Greggs. The new office, situated in Quorum Business Park in North Tyneside is a three-storey, 30,715 sq ft Grade A office space located in the Q9 building at the business park.
Quorum Business Park was selected due to its prime location, excellent transport links and close proximity to Greggs’ existing offices and production centres. Other occupiers of the business park include Tesco Bank, Balfour Beatty and British Engines.
Our in house architecture team designed the new office fit-out after being appointed in 2014 to design a modern, innovative new office space which would relocate the company’s employees in the region into a modern business hub.
Fergus Trim, development director at Quorum Business Park, said:
“Greggs’ arrival is outstanding news for Quorum and testimony to the excellent environment we have created here for people to work and relax in.
“Throughout the acquisition and design process the Sanderson Weatherall team have been professional, diligent and thoughtful. The team’s detailed knowledge of Greggs and their vision for what our Q9 building could offer their client meant that all parties were able to work together in partnership to complete the acquisition.”
Ashley Ritchie, group property manager at Greggs, said:
“We have worked with Sanderson Weatherall for many years, so we knew that we could trust them with a project of this magnitude and have confidence in their ability to deliver it.
“The integrated approach that the firm provides meant that we benefitted from a powerful combination of creative thinking, energy and practical advice throughout. We are pleased with the terms of the acquisition negotiated by Sanderson Weatherall and excited to see the office designs becoming a reality.”
