As Gloucestershire gets back to business after lockdown three, The Quadrangle has announced that its first office tenant will move into the Cheltenham landmark in May 2021.
The business, iPipeline, is a Cheltenham-based software company, providing digital solutions to the financial services sector.
Its new home on the Quadrangle’s second floor spans 8,805 square feet and will provide a modern workspace for more than 80 members of staff, when the company takes up its lease in May 2021 – with plenty of room to grow.
Moving from Montpellier House, the iPipeline team will benefit from a dedicated entrance lobby and staffed reception at The Quadrangle, while the office itself is fully air conditioned with full height, double glazed windows offering solar protection.
The Quadrangle’s central location in Cheltenham was also a key selling point, with many of the team opting to cycle or walk to work. There’s a secure bike storage, as well as lockers and shower facilities, as well as onsite parking for those who drive.
Helena Jones, HR director at iPipeline, said: ‘The team is continuing to work at home currently, but once we’re able to, we’ll move into our new home.
‘We’ll have the space for people to feel safe and the measures in place to continue to be Covid secure. Everyone is looking forward to the move and recognise that we’re fortunate to now be able to offer such a great office environment to be in.’
Tim Smith, partner at John Ryde Commercial, one of The Quadrangle’s agents, said: ‘It’s brilliant to be able to welcome iPipeline as the first new office tenant at the Quadrangle. With Savills now in their new location, the addition of iPipeline as tenants is an indication of The Quadrangle’s appeal as a modern office location.
‘The project is not far off completion now and we’ve been buoyed by the interest in the office space, particularly given the challenges of the last 12 months as the way we work has changed dramatically. The return to the office is obviously a little way off but once iPipeline are able to move in, I’m sure they’ll reap all the benefits the Quadrangle has to offer.’
The Quadrangle still has three further floors of office space available, with the flexibility to split the space into smaller units if needed.
Meanwhile, terms have been agreed for a prospective tenant of the anticipated Cheltenham rooftop restaurant, with interest in the remaining ground floor retail units, too.
