Liz Ward, Marketing Manager, Prospitalia h-trak, comments: “Prospitalia h-trak is excited to be moving into the 4 th floor of this iconic building. Location-wise, Building 2 could not be better with great transport links to London and access to the town’s eateries and shops. The suite that we are occupying has been refurbished to a high standard and the space offers us great flexibility, for our company today and for our future growth. Stylishly decorated, the building reflects our own corporate aspirations. Amazingly for us, the decoration of the common parts also matches our own brand colours! Our team is looking forward to using the café and shower facilities as well as being part of a community with the other tenants. Alan Chandler of Chandler Garvey has been very supportive over the past few months, answering our many queries and providing regular access during the run up to our office relocation.”
