Rushton Hickman Commercial Property Agent, Simon Walker, commented “We are pleased to have recently concluded the sale of this property to Bluebird Care. As the property benefits from an excellent road network and is ideally located for Bluebird Care to provide services across the East Staffordshire/South Derbyshire regions, it was therefore an obvious choice to be considered for purchase.”

Mark Richardson, Director of Rushton Hickman added “It’s great for us to have helped such a worthwhile business as Bluebird Care find a new home, and it’s a noteworthy story on a couple of fronts. Firstly, the fantastic office premises they occupy with their flexible space and open plan layout are a perfect example of the type of facility many businesses are now looking for as a hub with a team who combine both home and office-based working. We see this as being the way the office market is going as we move into 2022 and beyond. Secondly, it is always gratifying to get compliments on the service we provide. Whilst we are often dealing on a business to business level, we are also dealing with people and it’s great that the efforts of our team are recognised.”
