Be.EV, the largest public electric vehicle charge network in the North of England, is relocating to a bigger office in Manchester to accommodate its growth. As the company moves to the new 3,840 sq ft location at 111 Piccadilly, it will double the size of its current premises at 3 Piccadilly Place, and offer more space for 40 employees, in addition to meeting spaces and private areas for breakouts. Be.EV, in collaboration with branding agency Heavenly, creative agency Damsel in Design, and interior designers White Circle, redesigned the office ahead of the move. The premises are managed by Bruntwood SciTech, a partnership between Bruntwood, Legal & General, and Greater Manchester Pension Fund. Bruntwood SciTech’s national network with over 1,100 startups, scaleups, and global businesses, and added business support, including access to funding, talent, and new connections, will be available to Be.EV.
Be.EV prides itself on providing a sustainable approach to electric vehicle charging solutions with EV chargers completely powered by deep green energy sources, resulting in the reduction of Co2 emissions and air pollution. The company’s network is reliable, with 99.6% operational availability all across the network in the year 2023. Asif Ghafoor, CEO of Be.EV, said, “Although we are a national network, our roots are proudly in Manchester and the North West. This year has been a year of growth for Be.EV and our new office is the perfect headquarters from which to put our exciting plans for 2024 into place.”
Jack Maher, Head of Flexible Workspace at Bruntwood SciTech, welcomed Be.EV to the 111 Piccadilly’s vibrant community, stating, “Be.EV’s commitment to sustainable energy and innovative charging solutions aligns perfectly with our goals for Bruntwood SciTech. We aim to foster environments that not only encourage technological advancement but also prioritize sustainability.” Maher continued, “By joining our hub, Be.EV becomes part of a dynamic ecosystem where cutting-edge ideas and sustainable practices combine. This partnership is an exciting step forward, demonstrating how collaborative efforts can significantly contribute to the burgeoning innovation landscape in Manchester and beyond.”
