some exciting news from Arken HQ!
While the successful rebranding of The Write People For Design to Arken Creative had been one of my more immediate business aims to achieve over last year or so, one of my long term business goals has always been to purchase our very own office space.
Given the difficult business circumstances we all find ourselves in with the on-going COVID-19 pandemic, the timing may perhaps have been a little bit better but the perfect property for us came onto the market back in June.
Of course, I just HAD to go for it! 😉
So after a stressful summer of on-going negotiations, I’m now the proud owner of offices at 3a Forrest Road in the Riverside area of Stirling and sometime early next year, Arken Creative will have its very own new creative office space, enjoying views over to the Ochil Hills and The Wallace Monument, which we’ll no doubt be far too busy to fully appreciate of course!
I feel incredibly lucky to have achieved this major business goal at a time when many other businesses are finding trading conditions difficult and looking to downsize or move out of their existing offices and work from home for the foreseeable future.
Our plan to continue building upon the great foundations and heritage laid by The Write People For Design takes quite a few leaps forward as we embark on this exciting venture, and I must take the opportunity to say that I couldn’t do this without the continued support of our wonderful clients, my family and everyone working at/with Arken.
With us all working from home at the moment, one upside of the current situation we’re all in is that we are able to dedicate time and resources into giving our new business home some much-needed TLC and realise the building’s full potential, while not needing to somehow continue working in the middle of a building site!
Once the refurbishment work that’s required throughout the property nears completion, we will also have 32m2 of additional office space which will be available for rent. This will comprise of two separate rooms with private access between both and will have access to shared kitchen/toilet facilities and also a Meeting Room.
After looking over the architects drawings earlier on this week, we can’t wait to see the plans come to fruition over the coming months and share the final results with you.
Managing Director, Arken Creative
