Office space at Programme in Bristol that has been brought to the market reflects the new requirements of occupiers, according to Colliers International.
The 7,945 sq ft part-5th floor space at Programme, a rejuvenated building in the heart of Bristol’s Old City, features a mixture of tiered seating and acoustic booths. There is also a breakout space and a games area, complete with pool and table tennis tables, and a large, stylish kitchen.
James Preece, National Offices Director at Colliers International, said: “As fit-outs go, this one undoubtedly has the ‘wow!’ factor, and very much reflects the way in which office requirements have changed and accelerated from functional to collaborative space as a result of the move to remote working following the outbreak of COVID-19.
“This is a superb ‘Plug & Play’ space in which the kitchen and dining area occupies a significant position within the office, in contrast to the small kitchen areas which used to be commonplace. In addition, the breakout space and games area add to the sense of community and fun, while the acoustic booths reflect the recent surge in video meetings.
“We’re expecting this cutting edge space to appeal particularly to companies in Bristol’s TMT (Technology, Media and Telecom) sector. They are increasingly having to compete for talent when it comes to staff recruitment, and for them the right type of office in the right location is an important factor in attracting and retaining talent.”
The space on the part 5th floor of Programme, on All Saints Street, will become available in January 2021.
It is being sub-let by Colliers International at £27.50 per sq ft on behalf of the existing tenant, on the basis of sub-lease until June 2023 or by way of an assignment until June 2028 with a break in June 2023.
Other features include excellent shower and locker facilities, cycle storage, air conditioning and four car parking spaces.
