Banbury, 17th April 2008, Port@l, leaders in delivering innovative space and infrastructure solutions in association with its sister company Cannock Developments has completed contracts on Bankfield House, a 30,000 sq ft office located in Coventry City centre. The property will be completely re-developed over the next 9 months to offer high quality, flexible office accommodation to primarily ‘blue chip’ organisations.

Managing Director of Port@l, John Gotely explains the reasons behind the new acquisition, “There is a shortage of good quality office accommodation that can be made available to organisations on a short to medium term basis. The Coventry investment represents the first stage of a country-wide strategy to identify, acquire and redevelop properties in prime UK locations to satisfy this demand.”
The property is arranged over 6 floors, and can accommodate around 350 people. When completed it will offer single or multiple clients, flexible Grade A office accommodation that depending on their requirements could be delivered in a choice of three formats;

·A straightforward lease based on £16.00 per sq ft,
·Port@l’s unique fully managed Occupier Solutions.

Occupier Solutions is aimed primarily at ‘blue chip’ organisations and delivers customised accommodation that includes the infrastructure (environment, IT and telephony) on a managed service basis over a term that matches the client’s requirements.
