Chadwick Business Centres has taken 10,206 sq ft at Grange Court at Abingdon Science Park.

Chadwick, which has 11 other locations including 40rty Caversham Road in Reading, has taken the entire ground floor of the refurbished building in a deal arranged by Bidwells. It will operate as co-working space

Bidwells partner Sam Potts said: “After the last 18 months the needs of small, agile businesses are changing and overlapping with the home working environment. What Chadwick are doing at Grange Court is creating a space that flexes with the small teams who work in it, allowing them to easily grow and flourish as their businesses take off.”

Patrick Maher, commercial director of Chadwick Business Centres, said “We are seeing a growing number of businesses looking to occupy high quality office space on flexible, all-inclusive, fixed cost terms.

“The pandemic has simply accelerated what was already a growing trend towards serviced and managed office space solutions and we are seeing enquiries almost back to pre-pandemic levels – but actual take up is now higher.

“Interestingly, we are also witnessing a significant shift not only from small to medium-sized organisations, but also from corporates that may have historically been wedded to conventional lease options.

“The increase in home working and the drive towards reducing lengthy commute times is also having a dramatic and positive impact on regional locations.  We’re very excited to be opening the new business centre in mid-November, especially in such a key regional market.”

The remaining 8,750 sq ft first floor at Grange Court remains available to let.
