Spinning Clock Creative Agency Moves into Nottingham’s Most Stylish Office
14th June 2013
A Nottingham creative marketing agency that specialises in live events and video production is celebrating its tenth anniversary by moving into the Lace Market’s most stylish offices.
Spinning Clock, whose clients include the Department of Health, Speedo and Sage, has taken on a five year lease of the Loft on Plumptre Street – a 1,643 sq ft office conversion – in a deal done by NG Chartered Surveyors.
NG saw huge numbers of enquiries and viewings for the property, which it says is the most stylish office space in the city.
Henry Henson, of NG Chartered Surveyors, said: “These offices are stunning, and by far the most attractive I have ever seen in Nottingham. The Loft is on the second and third floors of a converted Victorian factory in the heart of the Lace Market – and no expense has been spared on its renovation.
“The owners spent over £100,000 converting the space from apartments to open plan offices. The design and decoration gives the space a wonderful, light, contemporary feel, but most of the original features of the building are still intact.
“People were literally queuing up to view this property – particularly creative companies like Spinning Clock – as it’s rare that office space of this quality comes on to the market.”
David Lister, founder and managing director of Spinning Clock, said: “As a company, we’ve won some big contracts in the last year, and we’ve taken on several new members of staff. We’re also looking for a new event manager, so we needed bigger offices to make room for everyone.
“We moved into the Lace Market from Beeston Business Park two years ago, and we love the area. We’d contacted NG to see if they could help us find somewhere more suited to our needs, and they surpassed all our expectations. We’d never seen anything else like this on the market.
“The Loft is perfect for us. As a creative marketing agency, we needed a modern, open plan office that reflected our company’s design-led ethos. I’m really looking forward to inviting our clients in for meetings and creative brainstorming sessions in the new office.”
David set up the company ten years ago. It now boasts contracts with national and international companies including Life Technologies Corporation in California, the General Medical Council and Capita PLC. It continues to work on the Department of Health’s major Change4Life campaign.
Richard Sutton, of NG Chartered Surveyors, said: “We were all really pleased to have the opportunity to market this property. As soon as we saw it we knew there would be lots of interest.
“Renovating the Loft was a wise decision on the part of the landlord – there is huge demand for offices like this in Nottingham but not enough stock. Landlords really need to invest in creating the kind of space that modern companies want to work, especially if they want to charge premium rents.”
Spinning Clock moved into the Loft in May, and will be holding a special event to formally open its new office later this year.
