A business park in Corby has seen an uptake in office space despite it only being opened in November.
There is good news relating to office space in Northamptonshire with the announcement that a recently finished office park has welcomed its first batch of arrivals.
An £8.3 million Business Enterprise Centre built in Corby which was only opened in November 2010 is already welcoming its newest tenants, bringing the total number of occupants to eight.
The latest businesses to take up the offer of office space are property consultants Altus Edwin Hill swiftly followed by recruitment company Merritt and Baker.
The site is owned by Corby Borough Council who decided to appoint Angel Management to manage the site. Corby council hopes that the business park will attract more firms and therefore encourage business growth in the town.
There is just over 25,000 square foot of office space in the building. The two tiered building has 15 studios and workshops, a meeting room and 3,679 square foot of office space on the ground floor.
The first floor is almost entirely devoted to offices with 23,257 square foot of office space, while there are also two meeting rooms situated there.
An advantage of the site is that the building will offer fledgling companies the chance to build up their base without having to pay any money up front.
As well as this the office park will offer an advice centre for the companies to use in order to promote their entrepreneurial aspirations.
Sheridan Baker of Merritt and Baker said: “High quality flexible serviced offices were simply not available within Corby until the CEC launched.
“We have been awaiting the release of these offices for over a year and have turned down multiple offers to relocate.”
“We are more than happy with the results in terms of facilities and cost,” he added.
