UK Chamber of Shipping reveals its new home
The UK Chamber of Shipping has today revealed its new home will be 30 Park Street, London, SE1. It is located in the heart of thriving Bankside between Southwark Bridge and London Bridge, and close to Borough Market, More London and the Shard.
The British Ports Association and UK Major Ports Group will also be moving to 30 Park Street with the Chamber. 30 Park Street is a modern, efficient and well-equipped office block constructed in 2008 and the Chamber will occupy the entire first floor, comprising:
- Separate office space for UK Chamber staff and ports staff along with
- an impressive and flexible suite of rooms which will be used for meetings and events with Chamber members and others.
The Chamber’s facilities will include flexible event space that can accommodate over 100 people and will showcase the Chamber’s new brand identity that will be revealed in coming months.
Angus Frew, Chief Executive of the UK Chamber, said:
“We’re delighted to be able to announce our move to London Bridge and look forward to welcoming our members there once we have completed the fit out. Our staff are all thrilled to be moving to the new purpose built offices, which are in a really vibrant and exciting area with excellent connections through London Bridge main line and tube stations.
“The Chamber’s new premises are bright and contemporary, and will make an excellent venue for our many meetings and events. We hope to launch the Chamber’s new brand and website there in the coming months - this move completes the reorganisation that has revitalised the UK Chamber over the last 2 years.”
The Chamber sold its current premises in Carthusian Street, EC1, in October 2011. The Chamber purchased Carthusian Court in 1994, following the IRA bomb that destroyed its former offices at St Mary Axe in 1992. The date for the move is yet to be finalised but is likely to be late September 2012.
