Software specialist continues rapid expansion with new K2 office
By Hull Daily Mail | Posted: 27 Nov 2018
A Hull software specialist has continued its rapid expansion by opening a new office in the city’s K2 complex.
Tevalis, which specialises in hospitality-focused sales and management technology, employs 70 people in Hull, and another 35 in its London office.
The move to the 11 floor of the £7m K2 building will provide a home for the company’s growing sales, marketing and accounts teams.
James Cook, managing director at Tevalis Ltd, said: “Our company is growing fast, and we needed additional space in the city.
“We wanted separate offices, to provide additional security in terms of business continuity. After exploring a wide range of different options, K2 provided the best option by far.
“The central location is convenient, the views over the city are absolutely stunning, and the space is perfect for our business. We’ve created a cool, contemporary and positive environment where our team can flourish, and the roof terrace and sky garden on-site provides opportunities for flexible working.

“Another key benefit to K2 is the on-site apartments – we’re investing in some to provide dedicated accommodation for our London teams to use when they come up to Hull.”
Tevalis works with major national hospitality businesses including Jamie’s Italian and Village Hotels, as well as flagship leisure organisations including St. Andrews Links and Birmingham City Football Club.
The business provides a variety of software and hardware which can help hospitality sector companies improve efficiency and profitability.
Following a refurbishment and refit, the company opened the new offices at the start of September.
Lucy Rose, centre manager at K2, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Tevalis Ltd to K2.
“We’ve worked closely with the team, along with interior architects Red Frog Design, to create a fantastic space to deliver exactly what they need to grow and develop the business.”
K2 is being developed by Tradepark Ltd, based in Beverley.
The first occupants moved into private offices and co-working spaces in February 2018.
Since then, Sky Garden rooftop, Lion Heart Hot Yoga studio, hair salon Cook Hair and deli and coffee house K2 Eats have opened at K2.
Work is continuing on craft beer and coffee shop Brew, Icarus Lounge events space and Indian restaurant Arisi, which are due to open over the next few months.
