Bishop Fleming signs flagship office deal
10 Jan 2020
Bishop Fleming has announced plans to move its Bristol office to a new head office in the city later this year
10 Jan 2020
Currently based in Queen Square, Bishop Fleming is moving to their new 13,000 square foot offices on the top floor and roof terrace of 10 Templeback, situated near Temple Meads Station.
Andrew Sandiford, Bishop Fleming’s managing partner said: ‘Moving to 10 Templeback is yet another stride forward in our ambitious growth plans for our business and particularly this region.
‘It will provide a cutting-edge working environment to attract and retain the highest calibre of people and to ensure the best delivery of professional services and experience for our clients.’
This move enables Bishop Fleming to double its workforce of 370, staying true to its plans to build on its 10% headcount growth for this year.
Advising on the deal were Savills and Meade King LLP for Bishop Fleming and Cushman & Wakefield and DLA Piper for the landlord St. James’s Place plc. Chris Meredith of agent Savills said: ‘Bristol is a highly competitive market and commercial property options of this size and quality are scarce.
‘We are delighted to have facilitated these new premises for Bishop Fleming, which will provide a fantastic workspace, creating a hub for people from other offices to work from as well as providing ample space to grow.’
The Templeback office will become the largest out of Bishop Fleming’s seven offices and the second move in 12 months, having recently moved its Torquay office to a similar office space.
The announcement follows a centenary year for the business, which was founded in Devon in 1919.
Sandiford added: ‘We have used our centenary year to launch our new ambition – to be recognised as the most rewarding accountancy firm in the UK for our clients, people and communities.
‘But most importantly, we have used it to position our business for the future. Moving into this fantastic new office in 2020 is the next step in delivering that ambition.’
