An ambitious tech company is on track to expand its business after signing a 10-year lease on offices in Birmingham city centre.

uTrack Software Solutions, which operates in the passenger transport sector, is relocating to the impressive ‘Shoreditch style’ offices at Bennett’s Hill House.

Bennett’s Hill House, a prominent 20,000 sq ft office building, has been transformed into a unique ‘urban chic’ building with an extensive refurbishment of the interior and exterior. A high-speed broadband connection has also been provided for tenants.

LSH was appointed joint marketing agent for the five-storey building. Charlotte Fullard, associate director at LSH in Birmingham, said: “We are delighted to announce that uTrack has signed a 10-year lease on 2,500 sq ft of office space, highlighting both Bennett’s Hill House and Birmingham as the ideal location for ambitious and expanding businesses to locate to. It’s a wonderful building in a first class location, which will help the business attract and retain high quality staff.

“There is nothing like Bennett’s Hill House in the city centre. The space has a distinctive ‘Shoreditch’ feel to it and definitely appeals to young, dynamic businesses that seek buildings with both an interesting history and a very high-specification.”

She added: “The refurbishment, coupled with the fact that Bennett’s Hill House is only a five-minute walk to New Street train station, makes it an excellent location for any business that wants to have a stylish city centre base.”

Manuel Costin, head of customer success, said: “As a young and thriving technology business we face the challenge of attracting talent in a competitive market. We needed something different to make our business even more attractive to potential candidates. Bennetts Hill House was the right choice. With a unique design that stands out from anything else in the city and an infinite array of provisions at our doorstep, the choice was clear for us.”
