I-COM HQ is Getting a Reboot

Mike Blackburn

We're delighted to announce that on 25 March 2019 we are embarking on an extensive redesign, refurb and extension of I-COM's headquarters to mark the start of our 15th birthday celebrations.

2019 marks 15 years since we first opened our doors in Fallowfield and six years since we made the move to 131 Portland Street in Manchester's city centre. Since our humble beginnings, the agency has grown to employ 40 members of staff, and our range of services has kept pace with the ever-evolving developments in technology to deliver the very latest in website design and development, SEO, PPC, PR, content marketing and more.

Marking the Occasion

With our birthday rapidly approaching, we knew we had to do something extra special to mark the occasion - the question was what? At the same time, our beloved 131 Portland Street office had begun to look a little tired, and the amount of space available was threatening to constrain our plans for growth and development.

The obvious solution seemed to be to move somewhere newer and bigger. However, just as Manchester is part of our blood, 131 Portland Street is more than just an office space - it is our home. This beautiful, Grade II-listed building has played a big part in shaping who we have become and we are proud that our brand identity is wrapped up with and embedded in these red-brick walls.

Then it hit us - with over 400-square feet to play with, we realised that moving somewhere bigger wasnt the answer, we just needed to think a little more creatively with how we use the home we already have.

And so, we are extremely excited to begin work with Bruntwood and interior Space Invader Design in upgrading our home into a contemporary, urban-themed space that reflects I-COM's creativity and individuality, while making more room for our ever-expanding agency.

How This Affects You

To make room for the necessary building and decorating work, we will be temporarily closing the doors at 131 Portland Street for the next three months and relocating to:

1st Floor, 57 Spring Gardens, 38-54 Mosley Street, Manchester, M2 3AZ

Our relocation won't have any impact on our services - and our phone and email information will remain the same. Our new address also contains meeting rooms available for our clients.

However, if you do have any questions please don't hesitate to get in touch. Keep an eye on the blog and on social media for ongoing developments and for more information about our birthday celebrations. We're incredibly excited to start work on 131 Portland Street and we can't wait to share our new-look home with you!
