Three big names take space on RTC Business Park

RTC Business ParkHitachi Europe, Serco Group and Network Rail have all taken space at RTC Business Park in Derby in deals brokered by property consultancy Innes England.

New office space has been snapped up by the three firms following the completion of a comprehensive refurbishment programme in a number of buildings on the popular business park, which is located to the east of Derby city centre.

LCR, owner of the RTC business park, in conjunction with Derby City Council, is using Regional Growth Fund to invest in the park to create economic growth and sustainable employment.

A first phase of refurbished office accommodation has recently been marketed with impressive results.

European technology giant Hitachi has taken 4,500sq ft of refurbished office accommodation within Derwent House. From data storage solutions to transportation systems, Hitachi provides products, services and solutions to every sector of the European market.

Serco Group, the outsourcing services company with its head office in Hampshire, has taken just over 9,000sq ft of refurbished space within Derwent House. Serco operates public and private transport and traffic control, aviation, military weapons, detention centres, prisons and schools on behalf of its customers.

Network Rail, which owns and operates the railway network, has taken five of the six floors at Brunel house on the business park, totalling a 15,800sq ft.

Nick Hosking, Director at Innes England in Derby, said: “RTC Business Park continues to attract interest from businesses wanting office accommodation with parking just outside the city centre and we are delighted to have secured a hat-trick of substantial deals at the park.

“Securing the lets just after completion of a full refurbishment illustrates how investing in refurbishment can be rewarded with good quality lets and also demonstrates the increased confidence in Derby’s commercial property market.”

RTC Business Park is one of the principal engineering employment centres in Derby with direct access to the A6 and is close to the railway station. The buildings sit within landscaped grounds and following the comprehensive refurbishment, Derwent House and Kelvin House have been fully modernised to offer excellent facilities.

Only 17,756sq ft of refurbished space remains available in Kelvin House.
