Following plans of expansion and growth, Approved Inspectors Align Group have relocated their offices to Southgate Business Park in Heald Green.

The business park owned by Orbit Developments has recently undergone internal and external refurbishment with a new range of small office suites created in Southgate 2 and remodelling of the reception areas in all buildings.

Align specialise in providing expert advice for building control and structural engineering in domestic, commercial, retail, educational and industrial sectors.

Andrew Graham, Director of Align Group commented:
‘As we spend so much of our time visiting sites across the North-West and sometimes further afield, the location was key when it came to choosing our new offices. It was essential we were situated close to motorway networks with extensive car parking facilities and the offices at Southgate fit the bill perfectly.’

‘We have big plans for growth in the future and hope to open regional offices in the coming years. We had to ensure that we have access to a large pool of talent for recruitment so being situated between Cheadle and Wilmslow is ideal as both offer opportunities for recruitment and fantastic public transport connections.’

Previously based at Manchester Airport, the company decided to relocate after deciding to expand the business.

Dean Richards, Leasing Surveyor at Orbit Developments commented:
‘We listened to Align’s requirements and were able to find the perfect solution at Southgate. A growing business requires flexibility and we were able to provide a large office space with a separate meeting room facility for onsite meetings.’

‘In addition, there is the opportunity at present for the business to expand again within Southgate if required to facilitate further growth. We’re pleased to welcome Align to Southgate and wish them all the best for the future.’

In addition to the letting to Align Building Control, Orbit Developments have also let two suites to IXReach totalling 1,251 sq ft. The global network solutions provider now has a presence in over 39 countries around the world and in more than 150 locations.

Southgate boasts high speed fibre broadband connections via Metronet and BT Fibre allowing businesses of all sizes to connect to a reliable and affordable broadband service and the business park also offers varying sized offices from 193 sq ft upwards to suit both small and large requirements.
