Property consultant Knight Frank’s Sheffield office has helped one of the UK’s leading greetings card publishers to identify, acquire and refurbish what is now its new headquarters.
Partner Jeremy Wilson helped Paper Rose find a property which would allow it to bring together its distribution and head office operations on one site and negotiated the acquisition of the premises, Riverside House on Nottingham’s Riverside Business Park.
Fellow partner Daniel Green surveyed the property ahead of the purchase and project-managed the refurbishment, which included remodelling the existing offices and erecting a new mezzanine extension.
Jayne Myers, managing director of Paper Rose, said the company had been struggling to find the right building at the right price, but, after just over a week, Knight Frank had come up with several options.
“We thought the building had potential but needed more office space for our studio as well as customer services, purchasing and accounts teams. Knight Frank were fantastic and worked with us to design and oversee a complete redevelopment of the office space,” she added.
Although the company’s head office was already in Nottingham, its warehouse had to be relocated from High Wycombe.
