The Challenge

Accenture was considering location options for their UK Global Delivery Centre. It already had a significant presence in the North East of England but was uncertain as to its exact requirements and ideal location.

The Solution

Cobalt, the UK's largest business park, offered Accenture the flexibility to expand on a phased occupancy basis in an exceptionally high quality building, Cobalt 15a, joining likeminded high profile occupiers at arguably the UK’s most sustainable business park.

Cobalt 15a provides an air conditioned state of the art office building providing large open floor plates over three floors. The building benefits from a triple height feature reception area, as well as 3m clear floor to ceiling height.

Accenture join Santander, Orange, Procter & Gamble, Hewlett Packard, G4S, Newcastle Building Society, North Tyneside Council and DWP at the 1.86 million sq ft scheme.

The Results

Accenture acquired Cobalt 15a (30,515 sq ft) via a 10 year lease. The building will initially accommodate 250 staff and the operation is expected to expand further at Cobalt. The Accenture staff are extremely happy with their new premises. Cobalt is an unrivalled truly sustainable business park with fantastic on-site amenity and exceptional public transport connectivity, including 458 direct bus journeys through the park every day.

Adrian Hill, Director, Highbridge Properties, developers of Cobalt, said:

"We are delighted to welcome Accenture to the business community at Cobalt. By choosing Cobalt Accenture has underscored Cobalt's appeal to major corporate organisations. We see Accenture's decision as part of a national trend of service sector companies moving to prime office park locations."
