THE world’s largest flexible workspace provider has explained the reasons behind choosing Rotherham town centre for its latest state-of-the-art site.

IWG – which has 3,500 locations in 120 countries – is behind 'Hope, Grove Road', a 10,500 sq ft HQ site with co-working spaces, private offices, meeting rooms and creative spaces.

Chief executive and founder of IWG Mark Dixon said Rotherham was “an important location” for IWG, with nearly 17,000 office workers and demand for workspaces performing strongly.

Last week we reported on the new application from Hope Offices Limited which could see the former Hope Church and Rotherham Foodbank base on Grove Road turned into office space to help meet demand for small business space within the town centre.

Planning agents Urbana said in a statement all buildings would be retained, with renovations inside.

IWG is delivering the development in partnership with the building owner, who has entered into a management agreement with the HQ brand.

The three-storey building will provide space for established firms and start-ups, while IWG’s 'Design Your Own Office' service allows companies to tailor their space to their own requirements.

Mr Dixon said: “We are establishing a stronger and much-needed footprint in South Yorkshire with this latest opening.

“As an important business hub for South Yorkshire, Rotherham is a fantastic place for us to boost our network.”

“Unprecedented demand” from companies of all sizes and workers looking for hybrid working solutions means IWG is expected to add 1,000 new locations over the next year, he added.
