113

The Almondsbury Business Park, located adjacent to the M4/M5 interchange, continues to be a popular office location as proved by recent double lettings to Vistair Systems Limited and Novus Property Solutions Limited.

The Park, which comprises nine modern office buildings set in mature landscaped grounds with parking, has only a few office suites left of between 700 and 3,000 sq ft, and only one detached self-contained building, being the 4,000 sq ft Ashwood House.

Novus Property Solutions Limited, a national maintenance, refurbishment and new build contractor with 30 offices in the UK, recently decided to split its expanding office operations from its warehouse function in the Avonmouth area. The company wanted to provide its staff with a modern, high quality working environment so opted for Almondsbury Business Park which also benefits from excellent access to the road and motorway network plus generous on site car parking allocation. Novus has acquired the first floor suite in Bradbrooke House, providing 2,063 sq ft on a new 10 year term at a commencing rental of £28,882 per annum.

Vistair Systems Limited, a provider of world class aviation safety and technology solutions to over 40 of the major global aviation businesses, has agreed to expand their HQ by a further 25% following the agreement to take over the whole of Broadway House on the Park, which totals some 9,291 sq ft, on a new 15 year lease at a rental of £129,066 per annum.

Vistair are not new to the Park, they commenced their operations in Bredon House before moving into the first floor of Broadway House and now expanding into the ground floor. Natalie Bennett of letting agents, Hartnell Taylor Cook LLP, acting jointly with Alder King, said: “The decision by Vistair to expand their operations in Broadway House gives a major endorsement to Almondsbury Business Park as both a location and in the quality of the office space provided. The new owners, Skelton Group are delighted Vistair have chosen to expand on the Park and hope they continue to flourish in the high quality accommodation they have.”

Simon Keefe of Skelton Group said: “We are delighted with our recent acquisition of Almondsbury Business Park, it has stood the test of time well, has an excellent car parking provision and with future refurbishment planned on the remaining accommodation, we are confident it will continue to attract good quality tenants and provide an attractive working environment for businesses in North Bristol.”

Tom of AK: “Almondsbury Business Park has always been very successful and now has over 10 occupiers from a wide range of sectors.  This is testament to the quality of accommodation and flexibility in terms of the size of space available.”

The letting agents Hartnell Taylor Cook LLP and Alder King are offering the remaining refurbished suites and building on new leases at a quoting rental from £14.00 per sq ft exclusive.
