MAXIM OFFICE PARK TENANT TREBLES SPACE
Pioneering biotechnology company TC Biopharm expands due to business growth
3 March 2017 – Maxim Office Park has announced existing tenant TC BioPharm (TCB) has acquired more space within the Maxim 1 building due to expanding its operations.
Currently in a 5,005 sq ft suite on the ground floor, pioneering biotechnology company TCB has taken further space on the ground floor and a full suite on the third floor, totalling approximately 11,300 sq ft and taking TCB’s capacity at Maxim to 16,300 sq ft.
TCB plans to use part of the additional space to increase its manufacturing capacity as it commences phase IIa/III treatment of patients with skin, kidney and lung cancer. The remaining space will be used to develop new products based on TCB’s innovative ‘ImmuniCAR’ cancer therapy platform.
Angela Scott, TCB’s chief operating officer, said: “This facility expansion will allow TCB to treat more cancer patients with our game-changing immunotherapies. The team at Maxim has done everything possible to facilitate our growth in Scotland.”
Craig Ritchie from Maxim Office Park commented: “TC BioPharm’s clean room, lab and administration facility at Maxim has become a Scottish hub for immuno-cell therapy research, benefitting cancer patients in the UK and Europe. We are very proud to have the biotechnology company as a tenant and to be able to accommodate its growing requirements as it continues its innovative and potentially life-saving work.”
The number of successful organisations operating from Maxim Office Park continues to grow with other occupiers including SEPA, Arran Arromatics, Allied Glass, Document Data Group, SureThing, the Digital Health and Care Institute and Proact UK. Furthermore Maxim Office Park is situated in the hugely successful Eurocentral which is home to FedEx, Laing O’Rourke and Amazon.
Maxim’s tenants can take advantage of the growing number of on-site amenities. In addition to the children’s nursery, a restaurant, hotel, coffee and sandwich bar, ATM and hairdressers are all available, alongside a fitness and beauty suite. The Park also lies within easy reach of the Glasgow Fort shopping centre due to its location on the M8 motorway.
Craig Ritchie added: “The upgraded M8 will have a major positive impact on businesses along the motorway corridor and beyond, improving the road network throughout central Scotland. This improved accessibility, along with our extensive public transport offering – the Park is serviced by over 130 buses a day – is making the decision to relocate to Maxim easy for businesses.”
Maxim Office Park has a wide range of modern and flexible office buildings with car parking spaces. Suites from 1,000 sq ft to one of the UK’s largest buildings at 187,000 sq ft are available.
Cushman & Wakefield and Ryden represented Maxim Office Park in the transaction.
