The top floor of a newly refurbished building in Bracknell has been acquired by a training provider in the town’s biggest office letting of the year.

The 9,848 sq ft fourth floor at Three Arlington Square has been taken by iHasco, relocating from another location in Bracknell.

iHasco was able to recycle some of the previous occupier’s fit out and furniture in a sustainable way, enhancing the environmental credentials of the letting and speed of entry.

Vail Williams acted for landlords Orchard Street Investment Management over the building in the heart of Bracknell’s regenerated centre.

Vail Williams Partner Guy Parkes, based in Reading, said: “This is the largest letting in Bracknell so far this year and sets the tone of the post covid revival of South East offices.

“Orchard Street is delivering two more newly refurbished and fitted suites in the building, fully furnished and IT enabled, ready for occupancy by the increasing number of businesses which are now planning to move and provide their employees with better office space.

“Bracknell is a particular focus for companies seeking great accessibility to a wider catchment of staff and talent pool but also good value as fitted office space is available here at a decent discount compared to surrounding markets.”

Three Arlington Square sits around an urban landscaped square, originally modelled on St James’s Square in London with its own pocket park at the heart of the town centre, moments from new Lexicon shopping and leisure complex.

The property, also just five minutes’ walk from Bracknell railway station, features a newly refurbished triple-height reception, full access raised floors, three lifts, air conditioning, natural light and plentiful parking.

Two new suites are currently available of 1,400 sq ft and 2,007 sq ft, fully fitted and furnished as well as a 7,034 sq ft wing available refurbished to suit a specific tenant’s fit out needs.
