Media services company, Arqiva, occupied a number of offices in and around Noho/Fitzrovia. In 2009 they were in a position to surrender or break several leases and consolidate their operation. They instructed Jason Hanley, partner of Monmouth Dean, to analyse what it was they needed and to go out and find a building that could accommodate them. After inspecting dozens of properties and short listing their favourite three, Jason worked with the client and their chosen space planner to assess which building would work best.
UK House on Great Titchfield Street was the clear winner. Lease terms were agreed with the landlord enabling Arqiva to take an option over 1 or 2 floors. The deal was negotiated and completed over the Christmas period and Arqiva are now on site fitting out the floor to their modern style of working.
