Paul Bicker, CEO of Asset55, moved his business into The Beam in 2020.  The company provides software and supporting consultancy to the global oil and gas market, and signed a 10-year lease to take 11,000sq ft of first floor space, moving from elsewhere in the region. 

As a company deep-rooted in the North East, our team boasts over 100 years’ experience in the industry and ensuring we pass on that knowledge to the next generation is something we’re incredibly passionate about.

The Beam is a superb facility. It’s in an easy to access location, just a five-minute walk from a train to London with easy transport routes to the A19 and the coast and is situated right in the heart of the city centre.

Add to that the North East’s skilled workforce, access to talent from five world-class universities and close proximity to some of the UK’s largest energy infrastructure projects from Scotland down to Teesside, and it’s a real prime location for businesses such as ours.

When you come into The Beam, it’s fantastic there’s high concrete ceilings and exposed steel and it gives that really cool industrial feel.  Being able to look out and see the bridges, see the river, see the industry, see where the city itself is going; it’s a great spot.  In five years’ time, it will be even better as more people move live and work here.
