• ENTEC, Viridis Energy, Charles Fellowes and GKA Open Offices in Manchester City Centre

Manchester, UK, xx October 2007: Stonemartin, premier provider of managed space offices, has signed leases with ENTEC, Viridis Clean Energy Group, Charles Fellowes and GKA to open new offices in Peter House, Manchester. ENTEC has taken 595 ft2 with space for 10 staff, Charles Fellowes 351 ft2 and Viridis and GKA have both taken 213 ft2. All four companies site prime town centre location and professional image and services as key reasons for choosing Peter House.


ENTEC is one of the UK’s largest environmental and engineering consultancies with 800 employees and associates based in thirteen offices across the UK. ENTEC was looking for a professionally managed building in the city centre from which to better service a number of its Manchester based clients. And, as they are currently recruiting, they also wanted a modern, well positioned office to help attract new talent to the company from the city and across the Northwest.

Commenting on the new office, Simon Armes-Reardon, Entec’s Managing Director stated: “We are continuing to grow quickly and organically, and increasingly, being in the right place to recruit the best people is key to our success.”

Viridis Clean Energy Group

Also taking space in Peter House is Viridis Clean Energy Group – an energy infrastructure fund that invests in a diversified global portfolio of clean energy assets. For Viridis, image, professionalism and a high degree of service were all central to their decision to take space in Peter House. The Viridis UK Management team has a headcount of four and through a contractor also based in Manchester they own and operate an established portfolio of landfill gas to energy projects across 35 sites in the UK. Viridis rely on the professional services and on-site facilities available at Peter House to support their team.

“A corporate professional image is important to us,” said Rob Brannan, General Manager, UK Operations, Viridis. “Prior to moving to Peter House we operated out of another serviced office in Manchester, but were looking for a better location and to optimise our serviced office facility. With just three Manchester based employees we also require a level of service and flexibility to adequately support our business as and when required.

“Peter House and its staff have lived up to our expectations and certainly convey the right image to our clients. The team is highly professional, the building and offices are well appointed, and the services and facilities are excellent,” concludes Brannan.

Charles Fellowes

Charles Fellowes is a specialist professional search and selection firm recruiting for top companies across the UK. They were looking for a prestigious city centre base as well as a professional working environment to provide the right image to both clients and candidates. Charles Fellowes also believe in the principles of feng shui and when they were looking to locate in Manchester town centre they had world-renowned feng shui Master, Master Chan Kun Wah, visit a variety of city centre serviced offices.

Tony Tomkins, Founder and Chairman of Charles Fellowes, comments: “Serviced offices in general tend to lack character – they often feel like bland public spaces – faceless and transient. Peter House however is very different. The space is well thought out and the building has a distinctly supportive, professional ambiance. Our feng shui expert felt that of all the serviced offices in Manchester, Peter House had the most effective energy for our business.” Charles Fellowes moved in on the 1st October and according to Tony “the results have been utterly outstanding!”


GKA is a specialist political and community relations consultancy to the property development industry. Since 1989, GKA has helped its clients secure planning consents and plan allocations for a wide range of projects, big and small, across all sectors of the market.

Daniel Knight, Director at GKA and head of the Company’s Manchester Office said: “We needed high quality space in the centre of the City in order to service our growing list of clients in the North and Peter House fits the bill.”

Peter House is a landmark building overlooking St. Peter's Square in Manchester's City Centre. The 100,000 sqft building offers 10 floors of office space, a major conferencing and meeting facility, together with adjoining restaurants and retail facilities.

“We are thrilled to welcome Viridis, ENTEC, Charles Fellowes and GKA to Peter House,” said Tim Worboys, Sales and Marketing Director, Stonemartin. “Manchester city centre is a great place to work and once again, the right corporate image combined with a high level of service and professionalism strike a chord with growing companies looking to make their mark in Manchester.”
