Grade A office refurb completes in Southampton

FI Real Estate Management (FIREM) is launching a brand new suite of long and short term office spaces at its seven-storey office complex at Nelson Gate following a £3m refurbishment.

The major refurbishment at Frobisher House has seen a full CAT A fit-out, including new mechanical and electrical systems, to create contemporary space with exposed ceilings, new carpets, bathrooms and showers.

The refurbishment at Frobisher House marks a major investment by FIREM to bring much-needed Grade A office space to the Southampton market.

FIREM has space available on the second, third, fourth and fifth floors with units ranging from 5,000 sq ft to 11,982 sq ft on each floor with an option to take the entire 40,918 sq ft across all floors.

The ground floor and first floor of Frobisher House are currently leased by the Department for Work and Pensions, with additional ground floor retail space also currently occupied by the Co-Op and Subway.

The landmark office development will soon become home to FigFlex Offices, which is set to launch in September and will provide flexible and collaborative workspace complete with workstations, co-working areas, break-out spaces, virtual offices and meeting rooms.

FigFlex Southampton will include serviced offices and day offices available for as little as one-hour to provide businesses of all sizes with a friendlier, convenient and more flexible approach to office-based working.

Located at Nelson Gate opposite Southampton Central Station, Frobisher House is a short walk from Southampton City Centre. Allocated parking is available at the development.

Tim Knowles, founder and Managing Director of FIREM, commented: “There is a strong appetite for high quality Grade A office space in Southampton and our investment in Frobisher House will not only help meet this demand but will elevate the market to ensure the bar continues to be raised for businesses based here.

“We have listened to the market to ensure that the space we have created brings a wealth of variety to suit different business needs. Whether it is a start-up that needs one desk for one hour or a growing SME that requires an entire floor for a long-term lease, Frobisher House offers space for businesses of all shapes and sizes.”
