Shelborn to roll out with Office App tech across 2 million sq ft of space in Glasgow and Newcastle
Shelborn Asset Management (Shelborn) has appointed global workspace operating platform, Office App, to roll out its technology across the firm’s flagship assets, Maxim Park near Glasgow and Quorum Park in Newcastle.
The partnership extends Office App’s fast-growing European presence to over 25 million sq ft of real estate and will play an important part in supporting Shelborn’s return-to-work strategy for tenants, as coronavirus restrictions begin to ease.
Strategically located between Glasgow and Edinburgh, Maxim Park comprises nearly 800,000 sq ft of prime commercial real estate and is home to over 50 businesses, including Ricoh, Balfour Beatty and Aviva. South of the border, Newcastle’s Quorum Park comprises over 1 million sq ft of Grade A workspace and amenities, with occupiers including Tesco Bank, GE, DVLA and Greggs.
With a strong community focus at the heart of both sites, the new park-wide apps, powered by Office App, will connect tenants to a wide range of existing services and amenities, and in due course, a calendar of community events and wellbeing and convenience services. Tenants will also be able to enjoy additional features including the ability to book space, report issues, purchase food and beverage, and connect with new people, all at the touch of a button.
As companies start to think about how they will bring people back to the office, the partnership will also ensure that Shelborn is able to support tenants with their return-to-work strategies. Offering live communications, information and notifications, the new site apps will ensure that returning workers are kept up to speed with health and safety measures in place across Quorum Park and Maxim Park. Additionally, Office App’s proprietary data insights will enable Shelborn to adapt the physical space and future services based on tenant requirements and feedback.
Mark Rabinowitz, Director at Shelborn Asset Management, says: “Central to our asset management strategy at both Quorum Park and Maxim Park is a commitment to tenant satisfaction. Both sites provide a wide range of services and amenities, but we are delighted that our partnership with Office App will allow workers to access these even more easily. Office App’s technology will provide unrivalled functionality and user experience and will add another layer of convenience and enjoyment for returning tenants.”
Ikenna Nweke, Head of Sales UK & Ireland at Office App, adds: “This is a period of immense change within commercial real estate. Workers are absolutely desperate to come back to the workplace, but managing their return will be absolutely critical. We are delighted that our technology will allow Shelborn to provide returning tenants at both Maxim Park and Quorum Park with a safe and enjoyable experience, as well as convenient access to the wide range of amenities and services both sites have to offer. We look forward to launching in April.”
