After Whirlwind Search, Tech Co. Stays in Manchester

Sitecore, a global MarTech company, is staying in Manchester after a whirlwind location search ended with a new home for their North American operations at the Brady Sullivan Tower on Elm Street in Manchester.

Sitecore began searching for a new location in October 2018 when faced with the expiration of their lease in Manchester, with no possibility for extension, according to a statement.

“We were hoping to be able to stay in Manchester, but knew it was going to be challenging to find a new location that had everything we wanted within such a short timeframe” says Rachel Russell, Senior Office Manager for Sitecore. “Lots of parking, building security, private bathrooms, and of course a great corporate image were all very important to us, and the Brady Sullivan Tower fit the bill. Once the decision was made, we had just 30 days to complete the move”.

Sitecore worked around the clock with a team of Brady Sullivan architects, engineers and designers to completely gut and redesign the entire 11th floor of the Brady Sullivan Tower, and meet the harrowing 30-day deadline. Arthur Sullivan recently toured the finished spaced and was astonished at the level of detail and customization they were able to accomplish in such a short time.

“This kind of custom fit-up would normally take about 6 months to finish, so we are extremely proud of everyone who worked on the project in order to get the Sitecore team into their new space in just 30 days” says Sullivan. “This is a win for both our organizations, and for the City of Manchester.”

The redesigned space features modular conference rooms, glass walls, standing desks and an impressive employee lounge area with panoramic city views. According to Russell, the Sitecore employees are embracing their new space, including the on-site restaurant and gym which add an extra layer of convenience.
