Tata Steel is to relocate one of its support operations from offices at Moorgate, Rotherham to Unit MBP2 at Meadowhall Business Park this summer.

Tata Steel has acquired 12,000 sq ft at ARBA Group’s recently refurbished multi-million pound business park to accommodate approximately 60 staff from its core business support and specialist environmental testing functions.  Fit out works has now started.

This letting means just 7,500 sq ft of open plan office accommodation remains at the five-block business park, which is now home to more than 13 companies, employing more than 500 staff.

Richard Burns, director at ARBA Group, said: “The success of our development at Meadowhall Business Park confirms that high quality accommodation, which can be flexibly used, attracts tenants.

“Not only that, but the location has been key. We are on a prime site close to the M1 with an immediate useful surrounding environment for businesses. We have city centre amenities in an out of town location with retail and leisure attractions close by.

“The remaining accommodation in Building 4 delivers 3,750 to 7,500 sq ft over two floors and has been totally refurbished to include a communal reception, lift, open plan office suites, LED lighting, comfort cooling plus kitchen, toilet and shower facilities. We anticipate strong interest in the final remaining space.”

Externally there is both car parking for 20 vehicles and bicycle spaces available plus plans for a container cafe are underway. The park has superb public transport links with tram rail and bus connections in the immediate vicinity.

Tenants at the popular 70,000 sq ft business park include GMB Union, Community, CapGemini, Tuffnells, NG Bailey, Auburn Ainsley Limited, Chique Photography, KitchenEx, Preventx, Wilford Smith, Eaton Commercial Property Consultants Ltd and Galaxy Insulation and Dry Lining (Holdings) Limited.

The Sheffield office of Knight Frank and Campbell & Co are marketing the remaining space at Meadowhall Business Park which is located opposite IKEA, less than one mile from junction 34 of the M1, two miles from Junction 33 of the M1, within six miles of the M1/M18 intersection and 25 miles of the M1/M62 intersection.
