“A friendly London workspace to grow our business, SCMS Associates”

SCMS are an engineering consulting group, which began as a kitchen table business in 2017. Strong early growth meant a move into a formal office space two years later and the company has continued to grow at LentaSpace Coppergate House, to its current team of 16.

Location was the key driver when choosing Coppergate House, according to team manager Beverly Mitchell, “The two Directors of the business wanted to be central, closer to Liverpool Street Station, as they commute in from Hertfordshire.  This area is also convenient for their clients, many of them architects, who like the funky buildings and more relaxed feel in the Spitalfields area, rather than the classic corporate, stuffy, shiny glass buildings of the city.

Beverley also has a great relationship with the LentaSpace team, “The team here are just brilliant. When we were looking to move to a bigger office, they were the big pull to stay here. We all agreed that we really liked them, and they are great with our clients too and that’s hugely important for us. Nothing is ever a problem; they always get back to you and go the extra mile and they are all so approachable and down to earth. We consider them as part of our team.”

The freshly refurbished Board Room is a useful facility for SCMS, “The meeting rooms are brilliant, especially the Board Room suite which is a perfect set up with refreshments and its own loos.  We host design team meetings on specific projects, with partner companies, so you want somewhere that looks impressive.”

Like all Coppergate House residents, Beverley has her favourite places to grab lunch and a coffee in Spitalfields, “We are always over at the market. I like Leon for salads and takeaway coffee from Marks and Spencer and the birthday cakes from The Hummingbird Bakery are amazing!”

The LentaSpace team’s support during the pandemic was appreciated by the team, “They were so Informative, right from the beginning, explaining how the building was working and encouraging us to come in if we needed to. Their communications were really strong and they dealt with everything appropriately.”

LentaSpace Coppergate House is on Whites Row, opposite Spitalfields Market. It comprises fully serviced private offices, with meeting rooms and breakout spaces on every floor, plus a gym, Peloton studio, showers and bike storage.
