We Heart ASP Towers
It’s been a year since we moved into our new home on the 12th Floor of Croydon’s most iconic building, No 1 Croydon. Some call it the 50p building, some call it the Wedding Cake building, traditionalists call it the NLA Tower and others just say it’s a 1970s eyesore. People in that latter category are wrong by the way. We call it ASP Towers and we love it.
Having previously spent 5 years in the building taking up half of the 17th floor, we were not only running out of space but with our plans for significant growth we needed to move. In October 2014 we officially moved down a few floors to have a whole level to ourselves (along with our friends from Explori), giving us capacity to more than double our workforce in time.
We had a blank canvas to create our new world and visitors would say we’ve certainly made it our own. We wanted to create an environment that people enjoy working in and where we’re proud to welcome visitors to, plus it had to reflect our culture and values which are vitally important to us.
With new furniture, bright décor, a number of meeting rooms, a Mad Men style CEO office and a large breakout area (with a pool table and plenty of room for Monday evening yoga), the office has received the stamp of approval from our team, clients and even the building management who have used it to show off to prospective tenants.
Circle the office, open all the blinds and take in some great views. See into Croydon town centre (commonly thought of as the grey concrete bit but the amount of cranes around provide evidence of an impressive city emerging), cast your eyes to the horizon and spot Wembley Stadium, plus it might surprise some but you’re actually treated to a fair amount of greenery too with the North Downs in the distance.
ASP’s main offices have always been based in Croydon and there’s no reason to change any time soon. And not just because we’re close to Selhurst Park! With great links into London (and to the airports for our international business) we’re very well connected. Croydon is fast becoming Tech City with masses of investment and an influx of tech and digital companies joining us here. With our own exciting plans for development and growth, it’s the place to be. Let us know if you want to pop in and visit us - even if it's just for a cuppa.
