National open source software engineer The Inviqa Group has become the latest new arrival at Bruntwood's Cotton Exchange in Liverpool.
The firm, made-up of three brands, Session Digital, SensioLabsUK and Inviqa, has offices in London and Manchester and took 1,000 sq ft of refurbished space at the Bixteth Street building, which is a core point of presence on the Metronet (UK) high-speed internet network.
Inviqa specialises in web development for enterprise clients including BBC, Comic Relief, Radley, Dreams and William Hill.
Yair Spitzer, chief executive of The Inviqa Group, said: "Connectivity is a hugely important factor for our business and the advanced network capability available at Cotton Exchange, plus the additional services on offer, made it a clear choice for our new Liverpool base.
"We have ambitious growth plans for the region and the character and space of our new office will give us an ideal platform to support those efforts."
Matt Lee, sales surveyor at Bruntwood, said: "Cotton Exchange customers, like those in any of our Liverpool buildings, have access to one of the most advanced metropolitan area networks in the UK.
"As a core point of presence, Cotton Exchange offers additional speeds of up to 100Gbps, making it the perfect home for The Inviqa Group and we are delighted to have attracted a business of its calibre."
Following a partnership announced earlier this year with Metronet (UK), customers based in any Bruntwood space in Liverpool now have direct access to services such as high-speed internet connectivity, with speeds of up to 1Gig per second and even 10Gig per second in some instances. The Cotton Exchange building is a Metronet (UK) core point of presence, making it one of the few places in the UK where users can order a 100Gbps internet connection, with hybrid & technology diverse connectivity deployed to ensure the site stays connected even if multiple fibres fail.
