Orbit Developments has let 13,395 sq ft to IT company Patni Computer Systems for its new European headquarters at Strata House, near Heathrow Airport.

Patni will pay £20/sq ft on a ten year lease with a five year break, with 12 months rent free, for the Bath Road building.

Patni will move from the Vista Centre in Hounslow to its new base and plans to rename Strata House following its move in early 2009.

Brian Stones, executive vice president at Patni Computer Systems with responsibility for Europe, said: ‘We are experiencing major growth in the UK and our move to Strata House will give us the perfect platform to take us to the next stage of our growth.’

The deal was completed by Orbit Southern, a branch of Orbit Developments which is headquartered in the north west.
