THE CHANTRY Centre welcomed a new tenant last week as Andover-based company Idea Reality moved into the Chantry House offices.

Idea Reality is a local product design company, specialising in bringing innovative invention ideas and new products to market. On Monday, July 6 the team relocated from their previous location on Bridge Street to larger offices in Chantry House, making them the second tenant to recently move into the premises following the Andover branch of Citizens Advice last month.

Ahead of the relocation into the Chantry House offices, Test Valley Borough Council has made improvements to the multi-storey office facilities and a lift refurbishment is also underway.

Leader of Test Valley Borough Council, Phil North said: “It’s great to see such an exciting local company moving into Chantry House.

"We hope the team at Idea Reality will benefit from the move and we look forward to seeing a lot more activity in what has, up until now, been vacant office space.”

James Lamb, founder of Idea Reality commented: “We are delighted to relocate our growing design studio into the newly refurbished Chantry House offices and becoming part of the Chantry Centre family”.
