Scottish Provident Building, a superior collection of serviced offices, adjacent to the City Hall, has signed two new tenants and continues to act as a catalyst for growth for others, including Gavin & Doherty Geosolutions and Repstor.
With a resurgence in traditional office space and the ongoing renovations of Merchant Square and Bedford Square, the Scottish Provident Building offers a managed serviced office. At 97 per cent occupancy, Donna Linehan, Head of Sales and Customers Services says that the Grade A listed building is much more than just serviced office space.
Donna Linehan explains; “The building itself is circa 1900, with beautiful ornamental external carvings. Between 2009 and 2018, we underwent an extensive refurbishment programme and today we have seven floors housing some 60 companies from all sectors; technology, professional services, creative industries and others.
“Our two new tenants include foreign and direct investment and technology companies, High Roads and Push Technology. A further two of our tenants, Gavin & Doherty Geosolutions and Repstor, are also renting more space as their businesses enjoy increased growth.
“We are always very excited to see new clients but I get a real buzz out of seeing tenants grow within the building and sometimes they do leave like Baker McKenzie to their own bespoke building.
“Our city centre location, right beside the City Hall, is always a major pull for our tenants but the building is stunning with tall ceilings, sash windows and a great service. We are only too delighted to see Repstor on the move and taking both the sixth and seventh floors as it is a sure sign of growth for this business.”
Alan McMillen is CEO of Repstor which has been in the Scottish Provident Building for over eighteen months. Repstor is an ECM software and matter management specialist, and secured a top 10 ranking in the 2018 Deloitte Technology Fast 50, making it the top ranked company in NI.
Alan said, “We have had another phenomenal year and our recruitment initiatives have drawn some enviable talent, so it’s time to expand to a bigger space. The team really appreciates a city centre location and the Scottish Provident Building is exceptional in its flexibility and being able to accommodate us, so this was a very easy decision to stay and grow in this iconic building.”
William Brown is Belfast Lead from Gavin & Doherty Geosolutions, a specialist geotechnical engineering consultancy who have been in the Scottish Provident Building since early 2016. Gavin & Doherty Geosolutions provides innovative geotechnical solutions across a broad range of civil engineering sectors including Infrastructure, Renewables, Structures, Marine / Offshore and Research and Development.
William said, “This latest transition represents our second internal move as we continue to improve our regional offering of specialist consultancy services into the UK and Irish markets. We are delighted to continue our residency in these unique offices in the heart of Belfast.”
Donna concluded; “Being able to give a company a home and a good one is imperative in today’s business. There are so many uncertainties in the business world but one thing is for sure, they can depend on SPB for a great location with great communications, security and service.”
