Engineering consultancy Cooper Homewood Limited opens new offices at Solent Business Park, Fareham

Leading property consultancy JLL secures deal for Cooper Homewood as it gears up for both relocation and expansion

SOUTHAMPTON, September, 21 2015 - Building services engineering consultancy Cooper Homewood Limited has secured new offices at Spectrum in Fareham in a deal brokered by leading property consultancy JLL.

Cooper Homewood has taken 3,790 sq ft of modern office space at Spectrum, Solent Business Park, which is owned by a syndicate of Craigard investors, following a comprehensive refurbishment. Nik Cox, director of Hughes Ellard acted for the landlord.

James Cooper, managing director of Cooper Homewood, said: ‘As we enter our fifth year in business, the move to Spectrum happens at an exciting time. We outgrew our existing office space a long time ago and are looking forwarding to moving to an environment where we can flourish.

“We couldn’t be happier with Spectrum. The building gives us the professional feel we have been striving for. We are confident the office and the business park as a whole will make working for Cooper Homewood an enjoyable experience and our staff proud to be part of the team.

“The service JLL provided has been excellent.  It made the whole process relatively stress free and made decision-making straight forward as we had complete confidence in the advice and guidance they provided.”

Cooper Homewood joins Mitie, Incomm and Options Resourcing as tenants’ in the building. 

Nella Pang, associate director of JLL Southampton, said:  ‘As the increase in market confidences returns, we are noticing that there is a diminishing supply of properties that match operational requirements, meaning that it has become challenging for companies to secure suitable premises. Spectrum has become one of the most popular buildings on Solent Business Park following refurbishment and is offered to the market at a competitive rent so we expect the building to be 100% occupied in the near future.

“It is imperative for occupiers to seek the right advice to avoid overpaying on property and agreeing to terms that do not match their operational requirements in this rising market.”
