A successful North East digital marketing agency has chosen a unique mixed-use development site in Teesside as the base for the next stage of its development.
Colewood has relocated its headquarters to a 4,800 sq ft office on Kingfisher Court at Bowesfield Park, which sits on the banks of the River Tees in Stockton, and which was created by regional employer Banks Property.
Originally founded in 1999, Colewood offers the full range of digital marketing services, including website ‘pay per click’ management, search engine optimisation, email marketing and website conversion rate optimisation.
Its 50-strong team includes Google-certified PPC professionals, data analysts, software developers and graphic designers, and it develops and delivers comprehensive campaigns for high-profile clients both across the UK and overseas.
Colewood joins a number of other commercial occupants, including Sanderson Weatherall, BHP Law, Archers Law, Handelsbanken, Audi, Lexus, Toyota and nursery chain Kids 1st, at Bowesfield Park.
The 35-hectare site also includes over 230 homes and a 15-hectare wildlife conservation area, and plans are currently being progressed to build a further 185 homes on the site in the future.
Travis Coleman, co-founder of Colewood, says: “We spent a lot of time researching different locations around the area, and Bowesfield Park provided the right combination of cost effectiveness, good transport links and a reliable fast broadband connection.
“The feedback we got from some of the existing commercial tenants on the site was favourable, and with quite a few members of our team living close to Bowesfield Site, relocating here made a lot of sense.”
Bowesfield Park is a fully integrated mixed-use scheme that was designed by Banks Property to have substantial wildlife habitats and recreational areas sitting alongside commercial and residential spaces.
Stuart Morgan, project manager at Banks Property, adds: “Bowesfield Park provides a unique setting for a substantial number of successful businesses, and we hope the Colewood team enjoys everything that it has to offer.
“Bowesfield Park’s proximity to Thornaby, Stockton, Darlington and Middlesbrough, its excellent transport links and the huge appeal of the maturing and highly-valued nature reserve all combine to make it a great place to both live and work.”
Simon Taylor, director at Naylors who brokered the letting on behalf of Banks Property, says: “This is a great result for all concerned. The standard of accommodation at Kingfisher Court is exceptional and it is great to bring in another fantastic name to the scheme following on from the recent letting to Sanderson Weatherall.
“We are currently talking to a number of interested parties about the remaining suites and hope to make further announcements soon.”
