Care provider has a new home

Non-profit care provider Housing 21 takes 15-year lease on 25,000 sq ft office space at Tricorn House, Birmingham.

Around 250 Housing 21 staff will relocate to Tricorn House at Five Ways from Vicarage Road, Edgbaston, once fit-out is completed in April 2014.

Housing 21 specialises in providing housing and care solutions for older people, managing 18,000 sheltered housing flats, extra care apartments and specialist accommodation premises in the UK. It has a turnover of £200m-plus and employs more than 6,500.

Bruce Moore, Chief Executive of Housing 21, said: “Finding a location which worked for our existing staff was key. Tricorn House is ideal as it offers good access to public transport, leisure and retail facilities.”

Tricorn House, which totals 155,000 sq ft, also houses Certegy, Codemasters, the Money Advisory Service and Mechel.
