Adair relocates to Derby’s Sadler Bridge Studios

Chartered surveyors and construction consultants, Adair, have become the first non-creative business to take office space at Connect Derby’s Sadler Bridge Studios.

When the company set up its Derby base in early 2019, non-creative businesses weren’t eligible to take space at Sadler Bridge Studios. However, when the rules were relaxed at the turn of the year, Adair’s head of region, Rachel Titley, and her team jumped at the chance to make the move to the building on Bold Lane in the city.

The relocation follows a successful few years for Adair, which was founded in 1994 and has offices in London, Surrey and Gibraltar. Its core services are quantity and building surveying, project management, dispute resolution and project monitoring.

The move to Derby forms part of the company’s strategic expansion programme with one new job recently created.

The three-storey Sadler Bridge Studios managed workspace is located on the site of the former Princes supermarket at the bottom of Sadler Gate.

Earlier this year, Friar Gate and Sadler Bridge Studios were given the green light to let up to 30% of their space to tenants from across the creative industries supply chain in order to further promote entrepreneurship within the city.

Eligible businesses include professional services firms such as accountants, lawyers, financial services and HR professionals, along with education and training companies.

Commenting on the move to Sadler Bridge Studios, Rachel Titley, head of region at Adair, said: “We are really delighted with our new, modern premises. Sadler Bridge Studios offers us a high street presence and visibility alongside the support of a serviced office environment in a modern building. The facilities here are first class, particularly the meeting room facilities and RASK, the fantastic café, which is based here.

“Connect Derby promotes collaboration and we’ve already had a couple of opportunities to work with some of the other tenants, which is an added benefit of being based here. We have exciting expansion plans and the space and the facilities here will give us everything we need to fulfil our growth potential and accommodate our staff and clients.”

Ann Bhatti, head of Connect Derby, said: “It’s great to welcome Rachel and her team to Sadler Bridge Studios. Adair are exactly the kind of progressive, fast-growing company we hoped to attract when we opened Sadler Bridge Studios up to a wider client base.

“Adair are joining a thriving Connect Derby business community and we look forward to welcoming more non-creative businesses in the near future.”
