New home for growing company.
A SOFTWARE firm has taken space in one of the most energy-efficient office spaces in the region following a deal secured by the independent commercial property consultancy Naylors Gavin Black.
Intelligence Fusion, a Software as a Service (Saas) company, has agreed to a five-year lease for the first floor of Aykley Heads Business Centre, the ground floor of which is occupied by landlord the North East England Chamber of Commerce.
The growing company - winner of the Innovation Award at the North East Business Awards in 2018 - has relocated into the larger premises from nearby Salvus House.
The office agency team at Naylors Gavin Black LLP secured a long-term lease for the Durham property following a refurbishment by the firm's building consultancy team.
The Chamber engaged Naylors Gavin Black to complete the refurbishment of the building after being impressed by its results for a similar project carried out on its behalf at Newcastle's Stamp Exchange.
Michael McCabe, CEO at Intelligence Fusion, said: "Due to a growing demand for our services we have completed a recent investment round which will double our headcount from 10 to in excess of 20 staff in the next 12 months. This includes our own technology team who will further develop our platform but also build customised intelligence tools for our increasing client base.
"We are also moving to 24/7 operations, so the rental of this office space will accommodate our future expansion."
Following the refurbishment, the building's specification now incorporates solar panels to generate power, electric car charging points and new shower facilities to help encourage staff to choose environmentally friendly options for their commute.
Naylors Gavin Black is now marketing office suites of 1,500sq ft and 3,400sq ft for the Chamber at The Stamp Exchange close to Newcastle's Central Station.
Chris Pearson, partner at Naylors Gavin Black, added: "Aykley Heads Business Centre has been a very successful, all-encompassing project and to have seen our original designs not only come to life but attract such a great tenant has been a real pleasure."
