BIW Technologies move into Sladen's Poplars Court25 August 2009 An expanding software services firm is to move into new offices in Nottingham to support its growth.
BIW Technologies, which is based in Woking but operates globally, already uses Nottingham as the base for its UK regional operations.
But it is switching from offices at Nottingham Science park to a new base at Poplars Court, the office park built by East Midlands-based devoloper Sladen estates.
In a deal secured by the Nottingham-based property agency Innes England, BIW will take two office buildings at the Lenton development totalling more than 2,700 sq ft of space.
BIW is a leader in the software-as-a-service industry, providing solutions for the architecture, engineering and construction industries.
Chief executive Colin Smith said: "We assessed a number of properties during our search however the quality of the design, the high specification and accessible location were key considerations in selecting Poplars Court for our new Nottingham office."
Sladen Estates say the landscaped courtyard style development has been extremely successful in attracting new occupiers during 2009, testament to the quality and high standards of the scheme.
Ben Taylor, development manager at Sladen Estates, said "It's fantastic to secure BIW in two offices at Poplars Court.
"It demonstrates both the flexibility in being able to combine two single offices for a single occupier, but also the kudos Poplars Court has with high-tech and professional businesses.
"We spent significant time and cost in ensuring stylish contemporary design with desirable finishes. Evidently this is starting to paying off having agreed the sales and lettings of three offices since January and a fourth going under offer this month."
The scheme is being marketed by Nottingham based agents Innes England and Fisher Hargreaves Proctor.
Ann Segaram, associate director at Innes England concluded "This development continues to generate good levels of interest irrespective of the current economic conditions.
"It is great to see activity in the market, reinforcing our belief that demand still remains for good quality product in established commercial locations."
