South West accountancy and business advisory firm Monahans is to relocate its Swindon office into larger premises following a period of significant growth.
The company, represented by property consultancy Alder King, will occupy the ground floor in Hermes House on Fire Fly Avenue in Churchward later this month.
The news follows Monahans recent appointment of Stephanie Hurst to the role of Tax Director.
Managing Partner Simon Tombs, said that the move to Hermes House redoubles Monahans’ commitment to the town.
He explained, “Over the last 50 years, we’ve built up a very successful team in Swindon and have developed a strong connection and commitment to the town. We’re very pleased that this will continue having secured such a prestigious location in Hermes House.
“The new office will provide a really first-rate working environment and support the hybrid working patterns of our team. It will also help facilitate our plans to grow the business by at least 10% over the next 12 months. We are very much looking forward to another 50 years of success in the town.”
Located in the Old Railway Quarter of the town and adjacent to the Great Western Designer Outlet Village, Hermes House provides 7,296 sq ft of modern, open-plan office accommodation. Its facilities include a large, dedicated reception area, meeting rooms, a staff break-out/collaboration area, fitted kitchens and 30 parking spaces.
James Gregory, Partner at Alder King in Swindon, added, “Monahans had a clear vision of what it wanted for its Swindon office with modern open plan accommodation and an accessible location top of the list. We’re very pleased to have helped them secure the very well-appointed Hermes House which totally meets their brief.
“Since the pandemic, we’ve seen a good number of companies investing in better quality office accommodation to encourage their staff back into the workplace to enjoy the benefits of social interaction, collaboration, community and training. Monahans’ relocation is a great example of this.”
Monahans has taken an assignment of the remainder of a 15-year lease after agreeing terms with the previous occupier RSM and the landlord Thor Properties (Guernsey) Ltd. JLL represented RSM in the transaction.
