A Birmingham-based health and wellbeing company is the latest tenant to sign a deal for offices at 54 Hagley Road, the landmark office complex in Edgbaston.

The company, which was founded in 1873 as The Birmingham Hospital Saturday Fund, is moving its 150 staff from nearby Darnley Road, after agreeing a three-year lease for 3,900 sq ft on the 13th floor as it looks to grow the business.

Incoming BHSF group chief executive Heidi Stewart said: “I speak for the whole BHSF team when I say we are delighted to start our next chapter at 54 Hagley Road. Eminent Birmingham surgeon Joseph Sampson Gamgee set up the organisation to help fund Birmingham hospitals and we are proud of these philanthropic roots and our many years at the Gamgee House headquarters on Darnley Road.

“Our clients’ and our own workplaces have evolved considerably over recent years, not least during the last 18 months. The set up at 54 Hagley Road provides us with superb facilities to accommodate our teams including our support and administration functions, who will be working on a hybrid basis.

“September will be a double celebration for us as we not only look forward to welcoming everyone back to the ‘new normal’ working patterns, but into a brand new environment.

“This is a real time of growth and opportunity for us as we increase awareness and understanding of BHSF’s products, to ensure that more employees across the UK have easy access to the very best mental health and wellbeing support.”

54 Hagley Road is owned by Aberdeen Standard Investments, which last year invested £3m in a refurbishment that transformed the entire ground floor.

Joint letting agent Richard Williams at Colliers said: “It’s great that 54 Hagley Road has attracted such an historic Birmingham name, attracted by its first class, modern facilities. The investment that the landlord has made to make this building the best in class within the Edgbaston market is really paying off.”

Avison Young is also an agent for the scheme.
