Bristol’s green workspace welcomes influx of new tenants

BLOK in Bristol, brought to market by Boultbee Brooks, is undergoing an extensive refurbishment to offer modern businesses a prime location and enviable office space. Described as a ‘New York loft landing in the heart of Bristol’, the offices are set on Castle Park, a short eight-minute walk from Temple Meads train station.

The building’s range of facilities include a gym, wellness and shower facilities, concierge service, coffee shop and co-working spaces, 181 bike spaces, EV and bike charging points, roof terrace and landscaped courtyard. The offices also boast strong sustainability credentials, with a target BREEAM rating ‘very good’, solar PV installation, on-site recycling, Fitwel 2* and a biophilic design.

Irwin Mitchell LLP, 5Values Consulting Group and Nathaniel Lichfield & Partners, have all chosen BLOK as their new home, bringing their expertise to this vibrant office location.

Legal and financial advisors, Irwin Mitchell LLP, have leased 6928 sq. ft over a single floor plate. Irwin Mitchell is the largest full-service law firm in the UK with leading private client and business legal departments. The company has also developed a wealth management service after helping thousands of clients manage large compensation settlements.

Bristol-based 5Values Consulting Group, technology recruitment specialists, have also moved into the building, occupying 4882 sq. ft. Additionally, planning and design consultancy Nathaniel Lichfield & Partners have moved in, with an office space of 1563 sq ft.

Zoe Wood, Asset Manager for Boultbee Brooks, said: “We’re passionate about reviving older buildings and giving them a new lease of life, with the aim of keeping our carbon footprint as low as possible. This means making considered decisions before and during construction, for the optimum operational lifetime (and minimal impact after). This is exactly what we have done here with BLOK in Bristol.

“We are thrilled to welcome Irwin Mitchell LLP, 5Values Consulting Group and Nathaniel Lichfield & Partners, and look forward to seeing how their businesses continue to thrive in this environment.”
