10 Reasons to Work at Fort Dunlop


1. Eat your lunch al-fresco

Who wants to be cooped up in an office all day? Even if it is Grade A office space. At Fort Dunlop, workers can eat their lunches on the roof terrace and that’s not all, they can put a ‘shrimp on the barbie’ too as tenants are free to use the roof terrace BBQ.

2. Break a sweat on your lunch

Do you find it hard to make time for the gym? Well, 24/7 Fitness is on site and if you hadn’t guessed from the name, it’s open 24 hours a day. See you on the spinning bikes!

3. Furry companion

One of the most beloved members of Fort Dunlop is Wayne. Wayne has our tenants’ backs as he wards off pesky pigeons who like to use cars for target practice. And before you ask, Wayne’s a falcon.

4. A spot of retail therapy

Having a stressful day? Take a two minute walk for a spot of good old fashioned retail therapy at The Fort Shopping Park. Whether you want to shop until you drop at River Island and other fashion outlets, or you are looking for a cheeky bargain at Poundworld, The Fort has the shop for you.

5. Free travel

When a business is looking to relocate, one of the major questions the management team asks is, “How will our staff get here?”. Fort Dunlop has its very own free bus which goes from the centre of Birmingham to Fort Dunlop (and back) every weekday at peak commuting hours. How convenient.

6. Work hard, play hard

Fort Dunlop doesn’t do average, whether that be office and commercial space, or events. From Super Spa Cinema, a rooftop cinema experience in a hot tub, to open-air theatre, we’ve thought of it all – you’d be a fool to miss out.

7. On-site nursery

Make the work commute easier by throwing your kids (not literally) into Letty’s Little Learners, so you can always keep the little ones close by.

8. Go north, east, south or west

Fort Dunlop is super well-connected; it’s at the heart of the UK’s motorway network so you can get to anywhere in the UK easily. Plus, it’s close to Birmingham airport, meaning it’s right on the flight path for all of you keen plane spotters out there – the rooftop is the perfect viewing platform too.

9. Unique architecture

We’re not one for bragging, but our building is pretty damn fine. If you’re savvy with a camera or an Instagram fanatic there’s plenty to spot and shoot at Fort Dunlop.

10. Europe’s BIGGEST

You may have heard that Birmingham has more canals than Venice, but did you know it has the largest rooftop terrace in Europe? So, if you want to catch some rays (and the best views around) on your lunch, it’s worth getting down to Fort Dunlop.
