Hartnell Taylor Cook looks to its upcoming head office move as exciting new era for the firm

April 23, 2021

Commercial property consultancy Hartnell Taylor Cook is to relocate its Bristol head office in a move that it says will usher in its next phase of development.

The firm, one of the mainstays of Bristol’s commercial property market since it was founded in 1922, will move from its current base at Somerset House on Canynge Road, Clifton, pictured right, in June. 

Its new base will be on the other side of Clifton in the landmark Nightingale House, pictured below, which overlooks The Downs from the corner of Redland Hill and Westbury Road.

Hartnell Taylor Cook is to occupy 6,000 sq ft on a single floor of Nightingale House, which was developed in 2007 and is now owned by AXA Health, which also occupies part of the building.

The building also has a BREEAM excellent rating, including roof-mounted PV panels and recently installed sustainable features such as electric vehicle charging points and state-of-the-art technology aimed at creating a paperless office.

The move kicks off a new chapter for Hartnell Taylor Cook, which also has an office in London, optimising its in-house agency service by operating from a modern and flexible workspace as well as supporting its environmental and social objectives.

The new office will also allow the firm to introduce post-lockdown flexible working practices as it provides flexible workspaces and meeting rooms that offer a more convenient and accessible environment for both employees and visiting clients.

Hartnell Taylor Cook managing partner Stuart Howell said: “Moving our Bristol office to Nightingale House signposts an exciting new era for the firm – one of more flexibility, better working environments and a greater focus on sustainability.

“One of our core principles has long been to keep evolving, so – with the world of work changing so significantly over the past year – we’re aligning our office with the new ways of working that are of most value to our team and clients.

“In addition, we’re committed to creating a more sustainable future, not just by helping our clients achieve environmental objectives within their portfolios but also by concentrating on the sustainable credentials of our own real estate and believe Nightingale House will enable us to continue on this journey. Exiting lockdown, hopefully for the last time, we’re excited for the firm’s next chapter.”
