Daikin doubles office space at Birmingham Business Park

Daikin, the Japanese multinational air conditioning manufacturer, has doubled its office space in Birmingham Business Park in a deal secured by KWB.

The company has expanded at 2470 Regents Court by taking the entire 4,705 sq ft first floor office suite. They now occupy the whole two-storey building which is over 9,500 sq ft.

The extra space will support Daikin’s growing sales team as it expands into new markets, including ground source heat pumps. They will benefit from modern open plan offices with new shower facilities, Daikin’s very own air conditioning and dedicated car parking in addition to on-site shops and amenities and a programme of regular events and clubs.

Malcolm Jones, of KWB Office Agency, acted on behalf of landlord Vector, who had extensively refurbished the office suite to Grade A standard.

Malcolm said: “It was a pleasure to assist Daikin with their expansion into the rest of 2470 Regents Court, especially given the current shortage of high-quality offices available in Birmingham’s out of town market.

“This extra space provides their people with a high-quality environment and room to grow along with easy access to the motorway network, Birmingham International Sation and Birmingham Airport.”

Located off Solihull Parkway, within 148 acres of mature parkland, Birmingham Business Park comprises 2.4 million sq ft of high-quality office space and is home to more than 115 companies, including Rolls Royce, IMI, Fujitsu, GKN and Changan Automotive and circa 10,000 employees. Earlier this year an unnamed government signed up for a landmark 37,509 sq ft of office space at the park, marking its largest letting in over two decades.

Due to the lack of quality space in the area, Vector has also refurbished 2460 Regents Court at Birmingham Business Park, bringing forward a Grade A standard, self-contained building totalling 5110 sq ft which KWB are marketing along with joint agents Peter Clarke.
