UMi welcomes new neighbours to Navigators Point

Nov 23, 2023 | Business

Dedicated to helping businesses go further, UMi has offered a home for another like-minded business in the area following their move to Navigator’s Point.

Located in Belmont Business Park in Durham, Healthcare Management Trust (HMT), a registered charity delivering not for profit health and social care within England and Wales, have now moved into a new office space in Navigator’s Point. HMT is largely London based with spaces in Romsey and West Wickham and it’s hoped that having an office within the North of England will present huge new potential for the company. Welcoming growth, the team at the trust decided it was time for a permanent Northern presence and believe Navigators Point is the perfect place to call home.

As well as fitting into their plans for growth, the green nature of the premise is ideal for their commitment to sustainability, innovation and community engagement, ideals which are well aligned to the values of UMi.

Navigators Point will serve as a hub for their central team to collaborate and provide an opportunity to further the charity’s plans to enhance healthcare services.

Dr Nichola Stefanou, Chief Executive Officer at HMT said: “We are excited to have joined forces with UMi in our pursuit of a more sustainable office base. This partnership supports our growth plans, and it’s great to have partnered with an organisation that has very similar values to HMT.”

Nicki Clark, Chief Executive Officer at UMi said: “We are delighted to welcome the team from HMT as housemates at our home in Durham. The values of our two companies are really well aligned, so it’s great that not only do we share a desire to help others but also the roof over our heads.

“This is a significant milestone for UMi, with our investment in Navigator’s Point not only being beneficial for ourselves, but now providing wider benefits to the area and people.“UMi is always looking for opportunities to help businesses to do more and go further, so providing a home for a company like HMT to grow and flourish in a way that can enhance the local community is both fulfilling and exciting.”

Relocating to the premises earlier this year, Navigator’s Point has undergone major works and now reaches a Grade A office standard. The office has also seen significant improvements to its energy efficiency levels, in line with UMi’s commitment to secure net zero status well before 2045.
