Liverpool’s Skyhook Games has taken space at Elevator Studios in Liverpool as part of its rapid expansion plans.

Skyhook Games

The video game business specialises in the creation of realistic environments, props and vehicles, as well as providing additional specialist and technical support.

The 2,500 sq ft facility will house a 20-strong team and allow Elevator to launch its own lawn mower simulator game, which will be released on PC and X-Box Series X this summer.

Finance and operations director Graham Chellew said: “Moving into this great studio gives us the space we need to evolve and grow, take on new team members, and create a large open plan work area whilst acting as a training and mentoring hub for our junior and newer staff members.

“The dedicated space also provides defined areas to work, collaborate, innovate and socialise, also enabling us to fully embrace a hybrid working model to meet the needs of all our staff.”

Howard Lord, managing director of CERT Property, added: “This move by Skyhook typifies the spirit of Elevator that sees occupiers grow within the building, utilising the space and flexibility to suit their needs. This, combined with the ability to network and collaborate makes Elevator the perfect place for tech firms.”
