A ‘pioneering’ technology company is set to double its leased space at One Glass Wharf in Bristol.

Ultrahaptics will take the space in a deal that involved Cushman & Wakefield and Alder King.

With the completion of the new letting, One Glass Wharf  – an office building wholly-owned by the Singapore based Mapletree group company – will be 100% occupied.

Mr Chua Tiow Chye, Mapletree’s Deputy Group Chief Executive Officer, comments: “We are happy to support our tenants, such as Ultrahaptics in their expansion plans and to capture business opportunities.”

Ultrahaptics, a technology firm which creates tactile sensations using ultrasound to create virtual buttons, switches and 3D shapes that can be felt in mid-air, will now work out of 14,000 sq ft of Grade A office space at One Glass Wharf.

Steve Cliffe, Chief Executive Officer of Ultrahaptics comments: “One Glass Wharf has made an excellent home for Ultrahaptics, being just across the water from the Temple Meads Station and at the heart of a growing hub of commercial and technology activity in Bristol.

“Mapletree and its joint letting team of Cushman & Wakefield and Alder King have supported us since we first moved in less than a year ago, and continue to support us as we quickly expand.”
