The Keep at Creech Castle in Taunton is to open as a new business centre by late May/early June. The landmark building will be run by Chadwick Business Centres following an introduction by Alder King.
Chadwick operates a portfolio of successful business centres across the South West including Bristol, Bath and Bridgwater as well as Reading and Cardiff. Creech Castle Business Centre will be its first in Taunton.
The centre will offer serviced office suites for 2-50 people in a smartly refurbished, listed building with charm, excellent natural light levels and openable windows.
Richard Douglas, managing director of Chadwick Business Centres, said: “Creech Castle is a perfect location for us, with easy access to Junction 25 of the M5 and within walking distance of local shopping amenities.
“As a listed building, the exterior is architecturally interesting yet inside we’re able to create a modern feel to a variety of sized offices.
“Creech Castle will appeal to occupiers seeking a flexible property commitment that will enable them to respond to change. Shared meeting rooms and amenities will create a community feel, creating a vibrant working environment where our clients can interact and flourish.
“We’re grateful to Alder King for bringing the opportunity to us, and for our partnership agreement with the building’s owners Winterbourne Estates, who had the foresight to recognise that serviced offices are increasingly popular.”
Andrew Maynard, partner at Alder King, added: “The serviced office sector has been booming for several years, providing a great working environment, state of the art technology and flexibility for occupiers, and diversified risk for landlords.
“The Keep will make an ideal business centre. It’s a distinctive and prominent building and had recently undergone a refurbishment programme to create three floors of good quality open plan space. Chadwick Business Centres are now adding their own improvements to the building in readiness for the centre’s opening in a few weeks.”
