Rail Union on the right track

Rail union RMT has moved its South West and South Wales Regional Offices closer to Temple Meads station following the move to new offices at 111 Victoria Street.

The National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers represents more than 9,000 members in the transport industry from its Bristol office, from mainline rail to shipping and offshore, buses and road-freight.  It has taken accommodation on the fourth floor of the multi-occupier office building on a five year lease.

DTZ and Williams Gunter Hardwick represented Commercial Estates Group in the move.  Phil Moore of DTZ said: “The refurbished office building at 111 Victoria Street is notable for its ability to deliver flexible high-value accommodation close to the train station.” 

“While the location is an obvious attraction to the rail union, the building is also proving particularly popular with businesses that require flexibility and the ability to adjust the office space taken as they grow.”

RMT regional administration manager Andy Robertson said: “Our move closer to the station makes good sense and we are delighted with the quality of the office.”

Richard Wadman of Williams Gunter Hardwick said: “Victoria Street has been enhanced with the development of a number of Grade A offices. However, 111 Victoria Street offers keenly priced, flexible accommodation close by which, given the current economic climate, offers an economical alternative without sacrificing on location”.
