Three UK to move out of head office building, Star House, in Maidenhead
Three UK has made the decision to move out of its head office building (Star House) in Maidenhead and move its headquarters to its other office in Reading (GBM) for an interim period.
We plan to fully exit Star House by March 31 2021, with our current workforce across Maidenhead and Reading working out of GBM whilst we explore options for an appropriate combined office space in the Thames Valley area.
COVID-19 has made every business across the world re-evaluate their ways of working, and how that will affect their current and future working environments. The end of our existing lease has prompted us to examine how we can best accommodate our teams in light of this.
Mark Redmond, Chief People Officer, said, “It is important that we plan for the long term and provide stability and certainty for our people and customers. With both leases up in our Maidenhead and Reading offices in the next 18 months, we felt now was the perfect opportunity to ensure we are setting the business up for success in the future.”
Robert Finnegan, CEO, said, “Star House has been our head office and at the heart of our business since we launched in 2003. It has served us really well and we are happy that we are committing our future to the Thames Valley area, which remains local to the majority of our people.”
We’d like to thank the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead Council for their support throughout the last 17 years. As we look at our office space as a whole, we will also be serving notice on our Grays Inn Road office in London. We intend to continue operating from the property until our lease expiry in September 2021
