ByBox has taken the entire seventh floor at The Future Works in Slough – including a private roof terrace.

The producer of smart locker technology has taken 14,517 sq ft of office space and 4,973 sq ft of roof terrace at the AshbyCapital and U+I development in the centre of the town.

The company is moving from its current base at Oxford Science Park.

ByBox will join serviced offices and co-working provider, Clarendon, which has taken over the space previously occupied by Central Working on the ground and first floors.

The Future Works is the first phase of a £200 million investment, providing 100,000 sq ft of prime space in a striking building designed by architects Sheppard Robson. In total, the three-phase regeneration project will create 350,000 sq ft of office accommodation.

Tom Smithers, property director at AshbyCapital, said: “ByBox’s decision to take space at The Future Works is a firm vote of confidence not only in the building we have created, but also in Slough itself.

“Having retained its title as the most productive place in the UK, with a higher concentration of global headquarters than any other UK city outside London, and with exceptional and improving transport links to the capital, Slough holds significant appeal.

“Interest in remaining floors is strong and we look forward to welcoming further businesses here.”

Jonathan Goring, group development director at U+I, said: “With over £4 billion currently being invested in the town and the Heart of Slough initiative transforming the town centre, Slough is certainly enjoying a renaissance. It’s great to see businesses recognising how much Slough has to offer them and their employees, which will only increase as the town continues its evolution.”

The Future Works has a 3,100 sq ft communal roof terrace, with Wi-Fi connectivity and views of Windsor Castle. It has a BREEAM environmental and sustainability rating of ‘Excellent’ and is WiredCertified Platinum for its connectivity and digital infrastructure.

Following the letting, 74,000 sq ft remains available over five contiguous floors. Joint letting agents for the building are JLL and Cushman & Wakefield. Bidwells represented ByBox.
