RSM Birmingham is relocating to a new office on 103 Colmore Row in the city centre, a move to support the firm’s hybrid working approach and facilitate its future growth plans.
The new workspace includes collaborative areas, breakout spaces and private meeting rooms.
RSM has signed a ten-year lease with joint venture partners Sterling Property Ventures and Tristan Capital Partners.
RSM’s team in Birmingham has reportedly seen “significant” growth over the years, and now has over 300 employees. The growth plans include the hiring of 50 new starters, consisting of graduates and school leavers, set to join in August.
The 26-storey building is an energy efficient building in Birmingham, and the first office to receive an EPC A rating in the city. Its heating and hot water is supplied by the low carbon District Energy Scheme, whilst its electricity is produced from renewable energy sources.
Mark Taylor, regional managing partner at RSM UK, said: “103 Colmore Row aligns nicely with our brand and status in the market. The building’s strong ESG credentials was a key attraction, along with its ability to accommodate our hybrid working approach – making it a home fit for the future.
“It also gives us plenty of scope for growth, which is a big focus over the next few years, particularly through boosting our graduate intake.”
James Howarth, managing director of Sterling Property Ventures, added: “RSM’s relocation to 103 Colmore Row is further evidence of the flight to quality that’s happening in the office market, with companies demanding the very best space for their staff and clients.
“Having an office that’s environmentally friendly is also of paramount importance to ethically and sustainably minded businesses and 103 Colmore Row, with its award-winning ESG credentials, is second to none in the market. It’s also the best digitally connected building, having recently achieved a WiredScore Platinum rating.”
