Solent Business Park, Southampton, UK For HSBC Bank Plc
In late 2014 HSBC made the decision to acquire Forum 1, in order to move the employees of Norwich & Forbisher House in Central Southampton to new, more modern premises.
Forum 1 is located in Solent Business Park, an out of town area between Southampton and Portsmouth. It is pleasant, well-landscaped parkland with water features making it an attractive location for a workplace.
The building was originally designed in 2000, with a total area of 6180 square metres. It also has a central atrium of 160 square metres, which is used as an informal breakout/cafe area with potential use as multi-functional space for 150 people.
