All the office space within Rushbond Plc's No 1 Belle Vue Square development in Skipton town centre is now fully occupied after the Leeds based property group let the remaining 4,500 square feet to JBA Consulting.
JBA Consulting is one of the UK's leading consultancies with teams of engineers, environmental consultants, designers and scientists, committed to improving the natural and built environment as well as creating sustainable communities. The company works across a range of sectors on projects locally and nationally throughout the UK and Ireland with a team of 350 employees.
Rushbond's Belle Vue Square development, on Broughton Road, consists of approximately 150,000 square feet of office, leisure and residential space, as well as a landscaped Civic square, within a cluster of Grade II listed former mill buildings.
JBA Consulting's new office in the West Wing of Belle Vue Square will be the hub for the Marine and Coastal Risk Management team, specialising in coastal flood mapping, modelling and coastal processes, as well as the company's Software Service Development team focusing on software development, Network Rail support and asset management for local authorities. The new office will complement the company's headquarters on the Broughton Hall Estate.
Marc Pinnell, Managing Director at JBA Consulting says: "JBA has been synonymous with North Yorkshire and specifically Skipton since our formation in 1995. The additional space within our new office will improve the working environment for our staff. Its accessibility and conference room facilities will allow us to increase the number of external training courses we deliver and share our expertise with flood and water management professionals".
Richard Baker from Rushbond says: "The whole ethos at Belle Vue Square has always been about creating a stand-out development that maximises the potential of the stunning 19th century industrial buildings. It has been a huge success and we're delighted the development's office space is now all fully occupied. JBA Consulting is a well-known company both locally and nationally, with an enviable selection of clients, which makes them a fantastic occupier for this building".
