Business occupiers at a dynamic Liverpool innovation hub are making a national impact with a diversity drive and groundbreaking digital technology that is making people safer in their homes.
A collaborative and progressive working environment has emerged at No 4 St Paul’s Square in the heart of Liverpool’s central business district that is continuing to attract new tenants.
And agents at the building, CBRE and Worthington Owen, are urging businesses to move quickly to secure the remaining office space available.
No 4 St Paul’s is home to a number of businesses, including fast-growing law firm MSB Solicitors and gas safety technology firm Gas Tag.
Managing partner at MSB and family law expert, Emma Carey, has been shortlisted in the NatWest British LGBT Awards, along with other Liverpool city region notables including John Bishop and Paul O’Grady.
She has been nominated for the Corporate Ally of the Year accolade for her work to promote diversity in the workplace and, in particular, her efforts to establish a LGBT+ network at the firm.
Emma said: “We appreciate the value of having a multi-faceted, multi-skilled and diverse workforce and the benefits it presents for our clients. I see equality and inclusion as something that guides our principles and defines our values.”
Gas Tag, founded by entrepreneurs Paul Durose and Stephen Ullathorne, supplies electronic tag to landlords, housing associations and local authorities that ensures all work is up to date and carried out by registered gas engineers.
Having started in 2015, the firm is now valued at £20m after securing a multi-million pound private equity investment from private equity house Waterland and is rolling out its technology in thousands of homes across the UK.
Mr Ullathorne said: “The Waterland investment will be transformational for Gas Tag. The funding and support of their experienced team will enable us to rapidly accelerate the growth of the business in the UK and internationally.”
Elsewhere at No 4 tenants are breaking ground. Commercial property agency GVA has just hired two new graduates, making it the agency with the highest number of graduates in the city.
And, Santander’s business incubator has been “fantastic resource” by the UK boss of the European banking giant Santander, Nathan Bostock. It is home to a number of innovative start-ups some of whom have already expanded flown the nest.
Neil Kirkham, director at CBRE in Liverpool, said: “It is amazing to see how much innovation and growth there is among the tenants here. Once they move in it just seems to energise them.
“We are in the process of signing up new tenants but there is still office space remaining in the building and we urge businesses to get in touch to find out how they can be a part of the incredible story of No 4 St Paul’s.”
