The Serviced Office Company has some exciting news – our biggest-ever new development, which should be ready for use before the end of 2021!
We’ve been waiting to tell you all about St James’ House on Central Park in Telford. The four-floor premises will house 52,000 square feet of serviced offices in Telford’s picturesque park, a stone’s throw from the M54.
Modus Workspace are currently refurbishing the interior to create serviced office space for small, medium and large companies, a project costing some £8 million.
By the time the work is done, we hope to offer:
- Nearly 50 separate offices over the ground and first floors with a total of 250 desks
- Lightning-fast internet capabilities including next-generation Wi-Fi 6
- Heating and air conditioning controls for each office
- Smart access systems on communal doors for 24/7 access to your office
- Four communal areas and business lounges with kitchen facilities
We will also be offering on-site meeting rooms in Telford, including six smaller breakout rooms that can be used free of charge, and seven larger conference rooms that can be booked via an app.
What’s up top?
The top two floors of St James’ House will be dedicated to open-plan office space, which can be occupied by a single tenant or easily reconfigured to meet a range of smaller needs for SMEs.
Clients on the third floor will have exclusive use of an outdoor terrace, while occupants anywhere in the building can use two large outdoor areas on ground level.
All occupants will also be given access to a 180-space secure car park, with six dedicated Visitor bays, four electric car chargers, and a 50-space executive underground parking lot.
Rob Streetley, Commercial Director at Modus, said: “I’m pleased to be working together with the Modus team and the Serviced Office Company for their largest project to date.
“It’s gratifying to know that we were selected on a competitive basis and knowing this means they’ve put their trust in Modus to deliver. It means a lot and makes us more determined to provide an outstanding finished product that everyone can be proud of!”
About St James’ House
We’re excited to open St James’ House in December 2021. The former HMRC building is surrounded by trees on the edge of a lake and had started to succumb to nature.
The derelict interior and overgrown exterior disguised a real gem, which wasn’t helped by the fact that the site had been used to train police dogs, and had been left with police tape wrapped around parts of the building!
The Serviced Office Company commissioned Box Architects to come up with the refurb concept and we’re pleased that they will be working with Modus throughout the completion of the work.
We set a goal to get the premises ready for occupants as soon as possible, and despite ambitious work to strip out all the services and replace all the windows and curtain walling, ceilings, lifts and other interior finishes, we will keep up the pace over the next six months.
