APD Communications moves into new offices

APD Communications – the control room software vendor based in Hull, UK – has moved into modern new offices to streamline communication among its 100-plus employees by bringing them together under one roof and support future growth.

APD’s new home, two-storey offices in the shadow of Hull Minster, a large parish church, has undergone a £2m redevelopment to create a hi-tech hub.

The offices have been designed to support existing and new customers, with the first floor largely dedicated to software development, engineering and testing. The facilities include a test lab for the London Underground, for which APD manages communications between tube trains and control rooms, through multiple operators, as well as a new purpose-built software lab and audio lab.

There is also a presentation zone with tiered seating for developers to collaborate, individual “think tank” quiet pods for uninterrupted and focused working, and a games room for APD’s staff to relax. The office is equipped with video conferencing to enable staff to work efficiently with customers far and wide.

The company had outgrown its previous offices across two buildings at the Newland Science Park next to the University of Hull and is currently recruiting for a number of new roles. It will also hire four new graduate software engineers in September.
