RPS takes 6,500 sq ft at Warrington’s Element

A 10-year lease has been signed by the consulting and engineering services firm, which joins fellow tenants SFIT at Bridge Properties’ Birchwood office site.

The move will see RPS leave Dalton Avenue on Birchwood Park to move to Element which was bought by Bridge three years ago, and known as Dominion House, before being refurbished and rebranded.

Tracy Cooper of Newsteer advised RPS on the move, which will happen this month once the fit-out has been completed by Flexible Business Interiors.

Carl Gaskell, operational director at RPS said: “We’re really excited at the positive impact this move will have on our people.

“Our current office is 8,800 sq ft which we have occupied since 2013.

“We are not downsizing the team, we are simply taking slightly less office space because of the ongoing balance of hybrid working post-Covid.

“The new office configuration will see us have less desk space but more meeting space and invest in a higher specification working environment for our people.”

Paul McCann, of Bridge Properties, added: “Element has been designed in direct response to occupiers’ needs.

“By creating a dynamic environment which attracts and retains talent, whilst at the same time creating a sustainable workspace which aligns with companies’ ESG values, the building is attracting high-calibre organisations like RPS.”

Mark Canning, of Canning O’Neill, joint agents for the scheme with Savills, said: “The refurbishment of Element has been to such a high standard that we have received a high level of interest from organisations in the locality and outside of the region.

“The space on the second floor, which includes a mezzanine and roof terrace, is particularly spectacular and sets itself apart from many other offices in the North West.”

He added: “Element’s fully fitted café and business lounge, together with other break out areas within the building enable occupiers to take and pay for less office space, whilst not compromising their increased needs for meeting space”.

Element offers almost 40,000 sq ft of office space across three floors, with suite sizes starting from 2,088 sq ft. The building also features a business lounge and a gym.

Rent quotes open at £21 per sq ft which includes parking space.
