esa unveils new uk headquarters in newbury

esa serviced apartments, a leading provider of accommodation solutions for the corporate market, has recently moved its UK headquarters to a new larger office space in Newbury, Berkshire. The move to Elizabeth House on London Road marks an exciting new phase in the company’s growth and is fuelled by the rapid expansion of esa’s team, property portfolio and international client base. In the last three years, esa has more than doubled in size, as organisations become increasingly aware of the costs of business travel and the need to source accommodation that encourages the wellbeing and productivity of employees. Following a period of pre-election uncertainty, renewed market stability and businesses confidence has provided a boost to the serviced accommodation industry. Businesses are now investing in major projects, which were previously on hold, prompting a surge in the demand for esa’s corporate housing and serviced apartments for project workers.

At over 7000 square feet and arranged over four floors, the new purpose built office building is twice the size of esa’s previous headquarters and shows the continuing aspirations of this highly successful company. Providing stylish meeting rooms and modern desk space for over 100 people in its current configuration, it is hoped that Elizabeth House will accommodate esa’s ongoing growth over the next 10 years. Additional satellite offices are also being considered, which would streamline operational efficiency as the company broadens its geographic coverage.

To execute esa’s vision of an inspirational workplace, which provides the necessary capacity for future growth, the company engaged Reading-based office design company, Ozone Interiors. The user-focussed design they have created has already proved popular with existing employees and it is expected that the dynamic working environment will attract further new talent to the business. Charlie Turner, Chief Executive of esa serviced apartments said:

“Since esa was founded 11 years ago, our principle aim has been to provide the highest quality accommodation and service for our clients, at outstanding value. As our network now extends across the UK it has been important to choose an office location which offers excellent transport links, a thriving business community and access to a skilled and educated workforce. Newbury offers all of this and more.

Committing to stay in the town long term will allow us to expand our experienced and passionate team, in order to continue to deliver the exceptional standards our clients expect. Our bespoke new headquarters in Elizabeth House will support our growth plan over the next 10 years and provide an innovative and professional working environment for our growing esa team.”
