USN – Seven House
Location: Seven House, Longbridge
Size: 6,300 sq ft
KWB was instructed by sports nutrition product company, USN, to find a new office location for the business. Their offices, at the time, were at Avon House in Redditch which, due to the fast growth of the company, could no longer house the office team or allow for future growth.
As official sports supplement partner of England Rugby League, USN provides the England team with some of the world’s most cutting-edge sports nutrition and bodybuilding products.
Having assessed the offices available close by, it became apparent that supply in the Redditch office market did not have a property suitable to offer USN, so we began to look further afield. We identified several potential properties and, after reviewing the shortlist with the client, Seven House in Longbridge was decided upon.
Seven House provided a floorplate that met USN’s current and planned future size requirements, and their vision for the workspace layout. It also offered the opportunity for future expansion within the building.
Longbridge has excellent communication links, making it easy for staff to commute to work. It has great access by road and train to Birmingham city centre, and easy access to the motorway network for visiting clients.
KWB Workplace, KWB’s office design and relocation consultancy, also provided move management and fit-out services for USN, creating a wholly unique office set-up that included a gym, serving as one of the breakout areas.
Jason Oakley, USN’s Managing Director, said: “We’re really happy with our new offices. We needed more space to accommodate our expansion and we now have workspace purpose-built for our needs. Longbridge is a great location for us. The transport links, growing amenities and hotels make it not only ideal for our staff, but for visiting clients, our sales team and European team members too.”
