Pandemic focusses floorplate flexibility at Sheffield office refurb

Sovereign Court, Sheffield

Landlord of a 5,300 sq ft office suite in Sheffield has used COVID-19 to rethink the refurbishment scheme.

Clarke Properties has completed a £150,000 improvement plan on Sovereign Court off Barrow Road in Sheffield focussing on flexibility of space for occupiers and essential car parking spaces at the ground floor suite in the East of the city.

The high spec internal accommodation features a flexible, open plan, L-shaped floor plate which can be adapted to accommodate approximately 50 employees working from the office base or from home, with additional room for break out areas, while ample parking provides an attractive added bonus for staff.

Harry Orwin-Allen from the Sheffield office of Knight Frank, which is marketing the accommodation on Barrow Lane near Meadowhall, said: “These premises have undergone extensive refurbishment to provide modern, high quality fixtures and fittings to suit the requirements of a modern day occupier at an out of town base.

“These requirements have changed over the last year with flexibility of floor plates post COVID being top priority, allowing employers to respond to how people are now working, whether that be agile working in the office several times a week, split shifts or from home.

“Externally, the premises are located within an extensive site providing 16 allocated, marked car parking spaces and a further area of good-sized hardstanding that could be used for further parking provisions for up to 25 vehicles. This is a real pull for an employer.”

Sovereign Court, which has a glazed communal entrance hallway, also benefits from brand new self-contained WC facilities, shower room and two kitchen/drinks points, door entry intercom system, carpet floor coverings, painted plaster walls, perimeter trunking, suspended ceiling with inset comfort cooling and automatic strip lighting.

The property, available to let, is located within the Meadowhall area of Sheffield, around three miles north east of Sheffield City Centre near Junction 34 of the M1 plus benefits from excellent transport links through the Meadowhall Interchange, within 150m walking distance, which provides bus, tram and train connections to the wider region.
