RedEye Expands At Crewe
Multi-channel marketing and digital analytics expert RedEye Ltd has more than tripled in size since the Duchy of Lancaster redeveloped Crewe Farm Buildings as luxury office suites in 2009. RedEye was one of the Duchy’s first tenants at Crewe Hall Farm, originally occupying 3,741 sq ft of office space.
Today this award-winning company has offices in London, Milton Keynes and Dusseldorf, as well as retaining its corporate headquarters in Crewe. When the time came for further expansion earlier this year, the team elected to stay at Crewe Farm Buildings rather than moving to a city centre location or out-of-town premises.
The Duchy of Lancaster worked with the company and other commercial tenants occupying office suites at Crewe Farm Buildings to release a further 2,400 sq ft of space and refurbish it in line with the existing offices, relocating another occupier within Crewe Farm Buildings as part of the process.
Commenting on the support provided to facilitate the company’s expansion, RedEye CEO Garry Lee said: “In the digital world, data, its analysis and application is mission-critical for companies. At RedEye everything we do is about making sure we have the best quality data and that we are able to utilise it to its fullest. This depends on a fully motivated workforce, so the working environment is key. We really appreciate of all the hard work done by the Duchy team to help us stay here, while continuing to expand and take the company on to even greater success.”
Duchy of Lancaster Head of Urban Mike Andrews added: “We are very pleased to have been able to come up with a solution which allows RedEye to stay here, while at the same time making good on our promises to other tenants. Crewe Farm Buildings provides an attractive business park environment within minutes of the busy motorway and national rail services, providing high quality office accommodation with views over open countryside.”
Crewe Farm Buildings was originally part of Lord Crewe’s estate acquired by the Duchy of Lancaster back in 1932. It now forms part of the Cheshire Survey, one of five rural Surveys owned by the Duchy across England and Wales.
