Essentia has successfully sourced and acquired circa 40,000 sq ft of office space for Barts Health NHS Trust.
Barts, who are based across East London and the City, had to relocate staff at short notice as their current office accommodation was being sold for redevelopment. The Essentia property team, who have been working with the Trust on a number of projects, were tasked with finding new accommodation that was close to the existing central London location and offered maximum value for money.
Following an extensive property search within a tight time-frame, a deal has been agreed for two floors within the former headquarters of Japanese banking giant Nomura on a sublease basis, expiring in 2022.
We were impressed by how quickly Essentia were able to find and secure suitable new office premises so close to our target location of Barts Hospital, allowing for an easy transition between the two offices. With rental prices within the City of London continuing to rise, our new lease represents excellent value for the Trust.”
