A MAJOR letting agreement has been completed on part of The Crescent scheme, located on The Viables Business Park.

Vision RT has signed a lease on 32,700 sq ft of mixed use commercial space within Building 1, meeting its requirement for a combination of offices and research and development uses.

Vision RT, the winner of two Queen’s Awards for Enterprise in the past, is a medical device manufacturer, renowned for developing market leading technology for surface guided radiation therapy.

The technology allows the tracking of a patient’s skin in 3D during treatment, enhancing patient comfort and safety and improving treatment efficiency.

The company will also retain their existing premises in Ramsdell for a period of time.

Vice president of operations at Vistion RT, Gideon Hale, said: “The Crescent offers us an excellent opportunity to accommodate the substantial growth that we are experiencing.

“Fortuitously the property was previously used by another medical research company, so the design and layout were ideally suited to our requirements”.

Richard Thomas, from BDT which acted as agents for the letting of the space, added: “Make no mistake, this is a genuine good news story.

“It sees the requirements of a rapidly growing Basingstoke company being satisfied locally, whilst also reflecting a major letting of office space in the town”.
