Flexible workspaces are in high demand due to the continued surge of hybrid working.
Sciontec has experienced a strong start to the year, thanks to a flurry of new lettings across its two Liverpool sites.
Seven businesses, working within the digital, technology and professional services sectors, have signed workspace leases with Sciontec at Liverpool Science Park (LSP) and the Sciontec AI serviced space in The Spine.
George Barclay, Acting Head of Property, FM and Operations at Sciontec, said:
“It is fantastic to be experiencing such a high demand for our office and coworking spaces.
Coworking options, in particular, are becoming increasingly popular for businesses wanting flexibility from their workspaces, and our range of hot desk options provide a hybrid solution for those organisations requiring a mix of high quality workspaces alongside a dynamic business community, which are affordable and straightforward to manage.”
One of Sciontec’s new customers, MyCardium AI, has taken space at both of Sciontec’s locations. As a result of their recent expansion drive, the MedTech scale-up now occupies a 730 sqft private office at LSP and holds a Sciontec AI Flexi Space membership in The Spine.
Antony Shimmin, Chief Operating Officer at MyCardium AI, said:
“We have worked closely with Sciontec to find the best model of workspace to satisfy our business needs. Having enough space for our team to come together, while having the flexibility to use different locations is a real advantage for us.”
Other new Sciontec AI customers include Morgan Sindall Construction & Infrastructure, who occupy Project Team Space for six employees, as well as Marks & Clerk LLP and Hive Projects, who have all taken up the Flexi Space coworking membership.
Just a short walk away at Liverpool Science Park, Inceptial Technologies UK Ltd and eLando AD are now co-working space occupiers, in addition to FS Waste signing up for Virtual Plus Membership.
Momita Saha Choudhury, Director at Inceptial Technologies UK Ltd, said:
“Choosing to locate our HQ at Liverpool Science Park will enable us to better serve the IT and digital industry. We were really impressed with the facilities offered by Sciontec and we will certainly benefit from their close links with the local talent pool.”
Sciontec’s new customers are already embedding themselves in the Knowledge Quarter Liverpool (KQ Liverpool) innovation ecosystem, by engaging with the newly launched KQ Liverpool Innovation & Growth Services programmes, utilising the local networks and attending community events.
Georgi Tonchev, Chief Business Development Officer at eLando AD, added:
“The soft landing support provided through KQ Base has enabled us to open our first Liverpool base.
“Having a high quality workspace in Liverpool will enhance our presence in the North of England, enabling us to grow our engineering team locally, and better engage with the UK FinTech community.”
