Western Tutorial College chooses Tower House in Bristol as new base

Western Tutorial College has moved to a landmark office building in Broadmead following a deal completed by property consultancy JLL.

The private college has taken 1,475 sq ft at Tower House on Fairfax Street, a 14-storey building overlooking Castle Park and beyond, having moved from Albion House.

The letting coincides with an extensive refurbishment programme which has already seen one of its suites transformed into contemporary space for technology, media and telecoms businesses. The building is also soon to get a new reception area.

Western Tutorial College is a small independent college and is the only institution in Bristol to offer a range of A-level and GCSE subjects over one year. Tuition takes place in small groups or one-to-one and there are a range of courses designed to satisfy the best universities in the UK.

Adrian Bradfield, directors of the college, said: “We chose Tower House because it is right in the centre of Bristol. Being on the 12th floor we enjoy great views over the city. The excellent central library, University of Bristol, museums, galleries, shops and transport links are all within a short walk.”

Lydia Riches, graduate surveyor at JLL, said: “The short supply of office space in Bristol means that demand for good quality and refurbished suites is high. Tower House is one example of this and the building is now almost fully let.”

Other tenants in the building include Immediate Media, Flagship Consulting and solicitors, Leung & Co and there is now only 2,600 sq ft remaining. The offices have secure on-site car and bike parking as well as shower facilities, underfloor heating and suspended ceilings. It enjoys fantastic views across the city.

Colliers International are joint letting agents alongside JLL.
