Lakeside secures major lettings deal with NHS Property Services

August 25, 2022

Lakeside North Harbour, Portsmouth’s leading workspace, has announced a major letting deal with NHS Property Services which sees the Government-owned company lease around 3,100 sq ft of space. Lakeside is now the home to NHS Property Services’ new South East hub.

NHS Property Services’ portfolio is one of the largest in the UK, comprising more than 3,000 properties with 7,000 tenants across England, ranging from listed buildings through to state-of-the-art integrated health campuses.  With a hybrid working policy in place, the new offices have been purposefully designed to facilitate and encourage a collaborative working environment, ensuring that team members can make the most of opportunities to work together.

The space has been fully refurbished with the creation of huddle booths and meeting rooms, along with new furniture, to provide a modern co-operative and co-working space for up to 60 employees.

Zoe Thomson, National Office Programme Manager at NHS Property Services, said:

“Lakeside is an exciting place to work and has a number of attractive benefits for our people, including its onsite facilities, outdoor space and abundant parking, which helped with our decision to choose the site.

“With flexible working in place post-pandemic, we wanted to make the office a collaborative working experience so that our people can take full advantage of opportunities to come together.

“Our new South East Smarter Working Hub at Lakeside supports our aims to offer our people best-in-class facilities and an environment that encourages interaction and teamwork.”

Alongside modern office space, Lakeside was also able to accommodate the company’s need for separate storage space of 1,600 sq ft, which will be used by its operations team.

Simon Bateman, asset manager at Lakeside North Harbour, added:

“We have found that, post-pandemic, what businesses need from office space is changing. There is a clear focus shift towards collaborative working and providing environments that benefit employee health and wellbeing.

“We’re very pleased to have supported NHS Property Services in the creation of its new South East Hub. At Lakeside, we always go the extra mile to meet our tenants’ specific needs, and we look forward to seeing NHS Property Services benefit from our modern facilities and 130-acre landscaped grounds.”
