Birchwood Business Centre Reaches 85% Occupancy

Rutherford House, UBC’s thriving business centre in Birchwood, Warrington, has welcomed an influx of new clients over recent weeks and is now more than 85% occupied.This positive news coincides with the second anniversary of UBC’s Rutherford House, which was officially opened in April 2015.

The business centre spans the entire first floor of the property, which overlooks Birchwood Park and provides almost 14,500 sq ft of flexible workspace for SMEs and corporate teams, with serviced offices ranging in size from 1 - 40 people.

In addition to serviced offices, clients benefit from a full range of on-site amenities including meeting rooms, IT and telecoms provision and extensive car parking, along with a fully staffed reception area and professional support from UBC’s on-site management team.

According to the newly released 19th Annual Warrington Property Review, Birchwood and Warrington are continuing to receive significant inward investment, enabling the region to build on its earlier growth and play a vital role in the Northern Powerhouse initiative.

As such, Birchwood and its successful business hub, Birchwood Park, are enjoying particularly high levels of interest from small business owners and corporates alike.

Over the past two years, UBC’s Rutherford House has enjoyed significant demand from businesses of all sizes, and has proven popular with corporate organisations that require flexible space for short-term project teams. It has also become a thriving business hub for local SMEs seeking a strategic base from which they can access key locations across the North West.

One of UBC’s newest clients to set up a serviced office in Rutherford House is Eden HR Legal, a Warrington startup founded in February 2017 by HR professional, Kareena Prescott.

Eden HR Legal provides affordable employment law advice, HR consultancy and support to businesses across all industries, with particular focus on the recruitment sector and those with complex umbrella structures.

For Eden HR Legal, which operates alongside Midlands-based business partners Dains LLP and works with a growing client base across the North West, location and accessibility is all-important.

“Having been the MD of an umbrella company whereby we used UBC offices at Rutherford House, I was keen to come back,” said Kareena. “Birchwood is an ideal location with easy access to the M62 and M6, providing us with easy access to visit our clients and similarly, for those who need confidential surroundings, our clients can easily come to us.”

Commenting further on her reasons for choosing Rutherford House, Kareena added: “UBC’s Customer Service Managers, Helen and Sam, are brilliant and the offices are stylish and professional, which provides a very good impression for our existing and perspective clients.”
