EXPANDING firm Douglas Stafford has signed a new lease at the 1000 Lakeside business park in North Harbour.

The firm is moving from its current ground floor offices to newer, larger offices on the second floor on a 10-year lease.

Douglas Stafford, which works with businesses on improving client satisfaction and customer service, originally moved to 1000 Lakeside in early 2009 and has since taken on additional ground floor office space as the business has grown.

Ben Sargeant, operations director at Douglas Stafford, said: ‘We have completely outgrown our original location, so it will be good to move to a more spacious office that has been custom-designed for our needs.’

1000 Lakeside used to be part of the UK headquarters of IBM, which is still based on the site, though in a smaller building.

It is expanding, and work to develop the Lakeside Business Park includes Portsmouth’s first Porsche showroom, as well as a retail hub.

Vail Williams and Hughes Ellard are agents for Highcross at 1000 Lakeside.
