Salloway Takes Root

Salloway's Nottingham office has already picked up a number of instructions since setting up an office in the city - and has carried out a number of deals including finding a new office for engineering software firm Root Solutions.

When the engineering software firm Root Solutions was looking for new office space, Salloway's Marc Ballard didn't have to look far...

Having set up Salloway's new Nottingham office at Brittania House, off the Ropewalk, Marc had a surplus of space and was able to offer part of the first floor to Root.

He said: "Root is a growing company throughout the UK and we are delighted that they have chosen Britannia House for their Nottingham office. This letting is a great example of how to make positive and income generating use of surplus space within a building, an activity which is becoming very common in the current property market."

Root moved to the new premises for expansion reasons.

Sales manager Dan Mahoney who heads the Root Solutions Nottingham office - which covers the North of England and Ireland - said the move would enable the company to train more customers on site.

Dan said: "We needed training facilities on site so that clients in the north of England did not have to travel to our head office in Cambridge. We not only have office space, but we have excellent training rooms at Britannia House which are perfect for our requirements.

"As a company, we are growing fast. At our Cambridge facility, we recently expanded the team by three people. Our Nottingham office is also looking to develop its core base of clients and expand in the future."

The three-strong Root Solutions team in Nottingham is seeing a growth in the downturn, said Dan, himself a former property agent.

"We are a value added reseller for PTC, a US software company. The products are constantly being improved and this means that we are seeing growth in sales."

Marc said: "Root is a growing company throughout the UK and we are delighted that it has chosen Britannia House for its Nottingham office. This letting is a great example of how to make positive and income generating use of surplus space within a building, an activity which is becoming very common in the current property market."
