Teesside accountants start galactic journey with move to new 'Doctor Who' themed office
A Teesside accountancy firm has announced that it is relocating to new science fiction-inspired offices in the region.
HMB Accountants has revealed that it is moving to Belasis Hall Technology Park in Billingham, in an office featuring its own replica of a TARDIS, as featured in BBC series Doctor Who.
Founded by husband and wife team, Howard and Sarah Bedford, HMB Accountants provides a range of accountancy, tax and business services across Teesside and North Yorkshire.
The move comes in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic and changing working practices.
Howard Bedford, co-founder, commented: “Our new premises have slightly smaller footprint than the previous space, however it is a better lay-out, making it seem bigger on the inside than the outside, just like a TARDIS.
“Our new offices have a large open plan office space for the team to work together and the model TARDIS will be landing in the main office, forming the entrance to the dedicated meeting room – which is another space we didn’t have in our old home.”
Sarah Bedford said: “The TARDIS idea came about when we were looking at furniture options; we spend a lot of time at work and need to enjoy being here, so we anticipate it will make us smile every time we come in.”
Ben Houchen, mayor of Tees Valley, said: “Teesside is known the world over for our steel, engineering, and processing prowess, but we also have a huge number of amazing professional service companies, such as HMB Accountants.
“The coronavirus pandemic has had a huge impact on businesses right across Teesside, Darlington and Hartlepool, but we are bouncing back and it’s great to see Howard and Sarah move into new offices and create opportunities.”
