Expanding property consultancy moves to larger offices

UK property consultancy Vail Williams has moved its Surrey regional office into a high-specification, modern new base in Woking as business demand grows.

The firm has taken a 2,275 sq ft space on the first floor at centrally located and fully refurbished Goldvale House – adding 50% to its accommodation to facilitate future growth.

Vail Williams has taken a five-year lease on Goldvale House, which delivered on the firm’s desire to stay in Woking.

The office is adjacent to the recently completed Victoria Place development, including 125,000 sq ft of commercial/retail, 189-room flagship Hilton Hotel and 400 apartments.

Four-storey Goldvale House, built in 1980 and refurbished last year, is just five minutes’ walk from Woking rail station and five miles south of Junction 11 of the M25 motorway.

The firm instructed Blue Jelly to carry out a bespoke fit-out of the blank canvas premises and was advised by legal firm Blake Morgan.

Vail Williams’ Surrey regional managing partner Geoff Fallon said: “To expedite ongoing and future expansion, we needed to seek bigger office accommodation.

“What we have done at Goldvale House is created a flexible workspace with different areas. People can come to work and work differently in the same place.

“It’s very much practising what we preach in terms of how the office environment has changed. There is a hybrid way of working today and we want to continue to attract talent and retain top staff in a welcoming and flexible workplace. 

“The new office includes an extensive desking area, plus a high desk collaboration area, two meeting rooms, a hybrid two/three-person meeting room and pod together with a substantial kitchen/break-out area.

The move follows Vail Williams acquiring new regional offices in Thames Valley, London and Bournemouth.

Geoff added: “We have grown our service offering hugely in the past five years and we will continue to elevate and consolidate this across the region.”

Goldvale House has a high-quality, contemporary reception area, two lifts, VRV air conditioning system, EPC C rating, shower facilities, energy-efficient lighting, cycle storage and full access raised floors.

Vail Williams has an EV charger in its car parking provision at Goldvale House, which is situated in a prominent position at the junction of Church Street West and Forge End.
