Train station specialist, SLC, will rent space at 4 Brindleyplace from January 2022.

The company is moving from its current location in the Jewelery Quarter to the 5,192-square-foot space and also offers an outdoor patio area that extends to 3,000 square feet. The initial five-year lease has been agreed by the landlord, Hines.

SLC says the move is to ease the needs of its growing workforce, increase capacity and have more flexibility across SLC Rail, SLC Property and SLC Investments.

In addition, the company wants to be in an attractive location for existing employees and to attract new talent with access to facilities such as gyms, bars and restaurants in Brindleyplace.

Sustainability is an integral part of SLC’s future, it says, and a key aspect of Brindleyplace was that electricity is supplied from 100% renewable sources.

There are also plans to add a solar farm in 2022 so that the tenants of Brindleyplace are supplied and any surplus will be brought back to the national grid.

SLC has had several investment strategies and projects across the West Midlands, including the West Midlands Rail Program, the development of a new station building in Kidderminster and the design and delivery of a new station such as the Worcestershire Parkway.

Ian Walters, CEO of SLC Rail, said: “As we continue to expand, it has been an important step in finding a new office that is not only convenient to access, but which can also make a positive contribution to our employees’ well-being, our sustainability goals, and continue to make SLC a great place to work.

“We think Brindleyplace will help us on that journey!”

Raj Rajput, Managing Director – Asset Management, UK, at Hines, added: “We are pleased to welcome SLC to Brindleyplace. As always, listening to each and every one of our customers’ demands is paramount as we work together to deliver jobs and an environment that meets the needs of a number of modern companies.

“The West Midlands is a major hub for rail investment at the moment and we are delighted that Brindleyplace will be home to a company that plays a vital role in this success.”

Savills acted on behalf of Hines in the agreement.
