Five companies at The Base in Warrington have renewed their leases with Langtree, which manages the office building on behalf of Warrington & Co. Tony McDonough reports
Every tenant with lease renewals at The Base in Warrington has re-committed to the tech-focused hub.
Five lease renewals, totalling 13% of the building’s grade A office space, have been completed by asset manager Langtree during the continued restrictions brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The five tenants employ 62 staff across a range of digital and engineering roles. Stacey Marsh, building manager for Langtree, which operates The Base on behalf of owner Warrington & Co, said the renewals point as much to the tenants’ strengths as to the appeal of The Base as a workspace.
She explained: “Teamwork remains vital to business performance and there’s no-where quite like an office environment for cultivating that. We’ve been operating safely as a COVID-secure building for many months now and tenants are pleased with the adjustments we’ve made.
“Our tenants are all at the cutting edge of their industries and are highly creative and entrepreneurial in outlook. Their cultures are around sharing ideas and collaboration and our workspace was designed specifically to facilitate that.”
The Base was developed as a home for start-up and high-growth businesses in the digital, technology and engineering spaces and provides 50,000 square feet of grade A space. The building is currently more than 70 per cent occupied. The companies renewing their leases are Simple Solutions, Meritec, Swan Solutions, NSAN and Chatbot Labs.
Andy Horrocks, managing director of Swan Solutions, an IT support business, said: “There’s a really hands-on approach from the management team at The Base which makes it a great place to be.”
