“Building on our strong market presence across the region, we have seriously ambitious plans for growth over the coming few years.

“This stunning new base gives us another perfect platform to keep disrupting the marketplace in the West Midlands and beyond.”

Mr Brough added: “It’s brilliant to welcome Ade and the Cooper Parry Birmingham team to Cubo at Paradise.

“They are one of a growing number of corporate companies which are rethinking their accommodation strategies and moving towards a flexible working model at Cubo.

“Location, great space to work from and flexibility are the main drivers for ambitious businesses.”
