Business 2 Business expands into new office

Business 2 Business Limited, the specialist skills and employment support company, has expanded its presence in Birmingham with a move to a larger office in the city centre.

Previously based in serviced offices at Regus’ Crossway, the company has taken 1,900 sq ft on the third floor of Lombard House, 145 Great Charles Street, on a lease assignment from Mode Transport Planning.

CBRE advised Mode on the lease assignment.

Business 2 Business was set up 37 years ago to tackle unemployment and social exclusion through upskilling and the delivery of vocational training. Headquartered in Leicester, the company has offices in Loughborough, Wolverhampton and Birmingham.

Since 2011, Business 2 Business has helped 37,900 people gain training or employment.

Brooke Matthews, surveyor in CBRE’s office agency team in Birmingham, said: “Having vacated the space, Mode Transport approached CBRE to assist it in finding a new tenant to take on the remainder of its lease. This was achieved in a short timeframe, with Business 2 Business agreeing a move to the office after just one viewing.

“We’re pleased to have helped Mode Transport and facilitated Business 2 Business’s move to Lombard House, and in doing so support the growth and expansion of the business in Birmingham.”
