Financial communications company d-flo has taken 1,894 sq ft of office space at RO Real Estate’s Admiral House, making the building 100 per cent full.

The new occupier of the Grade II-listed Edwardian former police station has taken the lower ground floor on a five-year lease.

The building features exposed services, self-contained entrance, showers, cycle storage, LED lighting, open plan space with meeting rooms and ample parking.

David Kershaw, group real estate director at RO Real Estate, said: “We have invested heavily in the external and internal refurbishment project at Admiral House, which necessitated taking great care given its listed status. 

“The end result is a Cat A+ fit out, offering a much higher level of completion than normal market requirements.  We are proud to have created a modern vibrant office environment with a Fitwel certification and EPC B rating that underscores RO’s strategy of ensuring the highest standards of health and well-being for our tenants and their employees in the workplace.

“The lower ground floor space, now occupied by d-flo was completely reworked and opened up, even making allowance for World War Two reinforcement structures that we found. 

“The quick leasing, with the tenant committing prior to completion, reflects the strength of our strategy, focusing on rapidly modernising and providing quality office spaces. 

“The building is now fully let justifying the investment made.  We aim to continue this approach in future projects, delivering top-tier and sustainably focused offices that reinforce our position in the commercial real estate sector across southern England.”

RO Real Estate was advised by Vail Williams and Christopher Thomas & Co.
