TCS signs in Darlington
Tata Consultancy Services has agreed terms on 8,000 sq ft of office space at Frogmore’s Lingfield Point business park as it seeks to fulfil a key pension administration contract.
As part of global conglomerate TATA, India’s largest multinational business group, TCS has more than 500,000 consultants in 46 countries.
At Lingfield Point, the firm will move into the Studios building from January.
Providing more than 1.2m sq ft. of commercial floorspace, Lingfield Point is already home to a number of large-scale public and private sector organisations including DWP, NHS, Student Loans Company and Capita.
In 2018, the 86-acre estate was acquired by real estate investment manager Frogmore which has completed over £1.5m of new lettings and lease renewals in 2023.
Tandem Property Asset Management, appointed by Frogmore in 2022 to manage Lingfield Point, believes TCS will benefit from business park’s strong amenity offer and hope the letting is the start of a successful long-term relationship.
Adam Hall, partner at Tandem, said: “We are genuinely excited to work with TCS to deliver high quality office accommodation for their new team to work from and we believe this further reinforces Lingfield Point as the premier business location in Darlington.”
John Matthews, director of asset management at Frogmore, added: “Over the past five years we have worked hard to establish a vibrant workplace community at Lingfield Point, with regular onsite events and a real focus on health and wellbeing.
“Following the recent launch of our ESG strategy, we are working towards a Net Zero future, with wide ranging investment across the estate. It is fantastic news that TCS is joining us in January and will be part of this journey.”
Joint letting agents Knight Frank and Connect Property North East acted on behalf of Frogmore.
