Meet Officio’s New Partners: The Institution of Civil Engineers – Officio

When faced with the upcoming demolition of their current office in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter, the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) were on the hunt for a new workspace.

Jane, ICE’s Marketing & Comms Manager was given the challenging task of finding a new workspace. Starting with agents she quickly discovered that a traditional lease was not what the business was looking for.

They needed a workspace that would reflect their business brand. Something that was modern yet had a professional finish. And centrally located for the ease of their clients.

ICE support Civil Engineers to become qualified and further their careers through providing them with resources and information. They are the people who ensure there are capable and knowledgeable individuals to create our roads, schools, hospitals and pretty much everything that make up our day to day lives.

Taking the search down a different route, Jane went back to the reliable old phone book and found Officio’s phone number. ICE and Officio worked together back in 2015. Having built up a strong relationship years ago we’d earnt a place on the preapproved contact list.

And it turns out Jane couldn’t be happier that she’d called. Adam Harris became her Client Advisor and through honest and transparent conversation, they’d found the perfect workspace with Landmark in Brindley Place.

We were really impressed with Adam, he listened to our needs and understood what we wanted which resulted in us seeing some great workspaces. We had a few issues when we first moved into the space which we discussed with Adam on his follow up calls. He escalated everything for us – he couldn’t have done any more to help.

Finding the best outcome for ICE’s workspace needs was a two way street. Adam commented, “Jane’s willingness to communicate with me and her approachable and honest attitude was a perfect match for Officio’s straightforward process. It is easy to see why ICE’s clients have so much success using this platform to further their careers.

After signing a yearlong contract with the help of Officio and Adam, Jane surmised, “Officio were professional and understanding offering a high quality service. I would definitely recommend their service to others looking for flexible workspace.

We look forward to continuing our partnership with ICE for many years to come and wish them all the luck in their new workspace.
