About Us

Above Your Space is owned and managed by Stockman Group.  The company is well established, having been in operation for decades which means the company understands the needs of small to medium size businesses.

Above has a focus on accommodating the needs of businesses by providing affordable, quality, boutique lock-up offices with the use of all the facilities and services to be expected in an A-grade office.  There is the flexibility to grow within our portfolio of offerings as we have a range of offices to accommodate growth.

We currently run Above Your Space Bonnington, Billens, and W L Brown, with three further offerings to be open by 2020 – each situated in a mix of repurposed heritage and industrial conversions.  Billens is a new purpose-built building reflecting the original heritage-listed Billens building.

Shaun and the Above Your Space team are highly supportive of the businesses who base themselves at any of the Above Your Space offerings and take pride in maintaining all Above Your Space offices and facilities to a very high standard.

You can find Shaun and his team in the Stockman Group offices on Level One, Suite One at Above Your Space Bonnington.
