Clarke Willmott to relocate Bristol head office

Clarke Willmott will soon relocate to a new Bristol office and has taken a pre-let of the top two floors of the new 11-storey grade A office being developed at Assembly building C in central Bristol.

The reason for the move

Chief Operating Officer Stephen Rosser, commenting on the rationale for the move stated:

“The pandemic has transformed ways of working for Clarke Willmott and as a result we have updated our strategy overall and our property strategy specifically. Our people have performed exceptionally over the last two years whilst working flexibly, and largely remotely, from home to support our clients. The pandemic has fast tracked our ways of working and transformed the way we operate. As we look forward, Clarke Willmott is fully committed to delivering excellent hybrid working. For us this is about facilitating remote working combined with an appealing office environment in order for staff to enjoy working collaboratively in person with clients and colleagues, whilst also enjoying the culturally important social aspects of work.”

What does this new space offer?

Discussing the reason for the selection of Assembly C as the new location for the firm, Rosser added:

We were looking for a space that enabled a significant reduction of our overall space requirement given our plans for hybrid working, at the same time we wanted an office that provides an attractive destination for our staff that they will enjoy working in. More broadly given our environmental commitments, we want an office that delivers on that front too. Assembly C meets, and in many ways exceeds, all of these requirements.”

Where is the new location?

Assembly Bristol occupies a prime spot on Bristol’s Floating Harbour, in the Bristol Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone. Once complete, it will form a new mixed-use destination in the heart of Bristol, supplementing prime office space with cafes, shops, restaurants and public spaces.

Assembly C is being developed by AXA IM Alts’ market leading Real Assets platform, alongside Bell Hammer as the development partner. Clarke Willmott was represented by Morton Property Consultants and AXA IM Alts was represented by JLL.
