Square's new tenant

Leading UK infrastructure providers NMCN has relocated a division of its team to Bondholder Cardinal Square, with help from Bondholder agents Rigby & Co.

NMCN has taken 5,224 ft2 of office space at Cardinal Square following a time sensitive search for new office space. The building’s owners Nurton Developments and Rigby & Co were able to act to facilitate the move which played a major role in NMCN’s decision to relocate to Cardinal Square.

Other deciding factors were Nurton’s ability to arrange broadband connectivity within a tight timeframe, alongside the quality of the building’s planned refurbishments.

Cardinal Square occupies a prime location fronting Derby’s Ring Road and the A52. The 113,000 ft2 of office space comprises of four inter-connecting blocks arranged across four and five floors that look across the building’s hidden landscaped garden.

The building is currently subject of a major refurbishment programme by owners Nurton Developments to provide upgraded services and facilities.

Commenting on taking space at Cardinal Square, Nick Parker, delivery manager at NMCN said: “We were really impressed with the speed at which Nurton Developments and their agents Rigby & Co responded to our enquiry and delivered exactly what we were looking for comfortably within the pressured time limit we had.

“Less than six weeks after we first viewed the space, we have moved into our new office, which is an impressive achievement."

David Dyas, asset manager for Nurton Developments, owners of Cardinal Square, added: “We're pleased that we were able to find suitable space for NMCN; it was a tight timetable and required a common-sense approach.

“We allowed NMCN to fit the space out whilst the lease contract was being finalised; our internal IT resource arranged broadband connectivity and it was back to business for NMCN upon lease completion.”


Cardinal Square welcomes new tenant

The 113,000 ft2 building is currently undergoing a major investment programme to create high quality office space, services and facilities. The ground floor of the building’s West Point has recently been the subject of a refurbishment programme to create Cardinal Business Centre, 4,500 ft2 of serviced office accommodation.

Commenting on the move to Cardinal Square from Raynesway, Paul Hodgson, Programme Manager at MWH Treatment, said: “We were very impressed with the quality of the office accommodation and facilities available at Cardinal Square, along with its excellent location close to the city centre and Derby’s principal road links."

David Dyas, asset manager for Cardinal Square, added “MWH Treatment required office space for 25 desks within a lead time of just four weeks. We were comfortably able to meet this deadline, agreeing legals and providing the required connectivity within this tight time constraint.

“Cardinal Square has always been a very popular office development, but since our refurbishment programme was launched, it is attracting more and more local, regional and national operations who are keen to take advantage of the high specification office space and facilities that are on offer here.”
