Consumable Solutions First In To 1000 Lakeside’s New Space

June 26, 2012

Highcross has let 2,800 sq ft office space to Consumables Solutions, at its 1000 Lakeside building in Portsmouth.

The company, which is a distributor of over 500,000 workplace supplies products, is the first to move into newly available refurbished office accommodation on 1000 Lakeside’s third floor.

Highcross has just completed the major refurbishment of around 18,500 sq ft of space, to create additional Grade A office accommodation. The flexible open plan space can be sub-divided into individual office suites from 2,000 sq ft.

Consumables Solutions has taken the office space on a ten-year lease. The company was previously based at Horndean and was looking for space in the Portsmouth area with the flexibility for further expansion. Managing Director, Jonathan Hall, comments:

“The company is undergoing a period of exciting and significant change with the imminent launch of our new Consumables.com website and the recent outsourcing of our logistics operation. The high quality office space, immediate availability of leased line connectivity and the flexibility to grow on site were key factors in our decision to take space at 1000 Lakeside.”

In addition to Consumables.com, the workplace supplies superstore, which goes live in early July, Consumables Solutions also has a separate division, providing added value purchasing and supply and management solutions for major companies.

More than 115,000 sq ft was let at the 1000 Lakeside office building in 2011, and Highcross anticipates strong interest in this new high specification office space. Nick Turner, Asset Management Director says: “The early letting of 2,800 sq ft even before we started actively marketing the new refurbished office suites demonstrates the continuing appeal of the Lakeside North Harbour business park for companies seeking high quality office space, in a convenient location, with excellent on-site facilities for employees.”

Vail Williams and Hughes Ellard are agents for Highcross at 1000 Lakeside. Lambert Smith Hampton acted for Consumables Solutions.
