Slough: Recruitment group signs up for offices at The Switch

Specialist recruitment company PageGroup has secured new offices at The Switch, in Slough. The company is taking 9,429 sq ft on the third floor of the office building on a 10-year lease, with a five-year break, from LaSalle Investment Management.

The deal was negotiated by Surrey-based property consultants, Vail Williams LLP, and follows the firm’s recent lease re-gear of PageGroup’s premises at Churchill House, Cardiff.

Additional advice was provided by Vail Williams to secure the surrender of PageGroup’s existing lease at Wellington House, Slough.

Steve New, partner in the acquisition and disposals team at Vail Williams office in Woking, commented: “We’re pleased to have sourced and secured The Switch for PageGroup in what is a fantastic, high-quality building. The central location and excellent transport links into the City, together with the flexible lease terms on offer, made this the ideal opportunity for our client.”

The Switch’s central location benefits from Slough’s transport connections and the arrival of Crossrail will mean its occupiers will be able to reach Bond Street in 30 minutes and the City in 35 minutes.

James Smith, national director at LaSalle Investment Management, said: “We are now approximately 65% let at The Switch highlighting that companies are increasingly looking for flexible buildings that can offer a high specification working environment and excellent transport links.”

The Switch was formerly home to Amazon and has been transformed to provide competitively priced grade A offices with some 21,000 sq ft remaining available.

LaSalle Investment Management was advised by De Souza and JLL.
