Two Major Tenants Move into Ipswich's Hyde Park House

Engineering consultancy Haydn Evans and digital marketing agency Crafted have taken space at the bespoke office building in central Ipswich.

We are delighted to be supporting organisations to bring their teams back together in their purpose-built office spaces, having welcomed another new tenant to one of our buildings.

Engineering consultancy Haydn Evans has signed a 10-year lease deal for a 2,061 sq ft refurbished office suite on the second floor of Hyde Park House on Crown Street in central Ipswich.

We created a modern and appealing space at Hyde Park House, completing a light refurb which included the installation of a new air conditioning and filtration system that perfectly met Haydn Evans’ needs.

The deal closely follows that with independent digital marketing agency Crafted for 9,060 sq ft, leaving only two spaces available in the bespoke office building: a 1,817 sq ft space on part of the first floor, and a 1,050 sq ft suite on the west side of the ground floor, suitable as office space or a unique retail opportunity.

Until recently, Hyde Park House was marketed as a collection of larger suites, but after separating the space into smaller offices, the building’s appeal has substantially increased and is on track to be fully let by the end of the year.

We are is set to commence a refurbishment of the first-floor office, raising it to Grade A specification. Interested parties are invited to find out more at

"Swift turnaround"

A spokesperson within our company said: “Businesses have faced many challenges working from home over the past 18 months so it’s fantastic to see people coming together again in Hyde Park House to collaborate and learn from each other.

“We’re really pleased to welcome Haydn Evans and Crafted to Hyde Park House as we accelerate towards the building’s full occupancy.

“Securing two major deals within such a short time period is testament to the quality refurbishment and prominent location of this contemporary office facility in Ipswich town centre, particularly in the face of the market challenges presented by Covid-19.

“Hyde Park House was the only building Haydn Evans were interested in, so we acted quickly to help them move into the building as soon as possible, with a swift turnaround of two months from initial enquiry.”

"Proud to show off"

Laura Palmer, Rail Coordinator at Haydn Evans Consulting, explained that Hyde Park House appealed due to its central location but also that it allowed space for future expansion.

"We really liked the feel of the office space, with the windows all around creating a nice atmosphere and inviting lots of natural light,” she commented.

“With more spaces and facilities we are proud to show off, we have been able to welcome more visitors and host more meetings since moving to Hyde Park House,” added Laura.

“Everybody at FI Real Estate Management has been extremely helpful throughout the whole process. When I have had any questions or have needed anything at all, I have always been able to get in touch with somebody.”
