What Makes the Ideal Office Space?

Whether you are small start-up firm or a larger company, out-of-town office space offers a cost-effective alternative to expensive town centre premises, which is ideal in the current climate.

If you are looking for office space to rent near Colchester, The Gattinetts Business Centre in East Bergholt is a popular place to be. It is halfway between Colchester and Ipswich, so you have all the convenience of the site’s position, without the high prices.

If you have a business in Suffolk or Essex and are looking to relocate, here are some reasons why The Gattinetts is the ideal site for not only for start-ups, but for well established companies needing medium sized office space.

What is the Definition of a Small Business in the UK?

The definition of a small business is a company that employs fewer than 50 people. Statistics from 2018 show that there are around 5.7million of these in the UK and around 60% of those employed in the private sector work for a small business.

As many firms would agree, choosing the right office space plays a major part in the success of a business.

Small Businesses: Finding the Perfect Office Space

Price – If you are a smaller company, you may prefer a high-quality office space in an out of town location to avoid paying over the odds for your business premises.  The Gattinetts offers irresistible rates for office premises, workshops and storage – one of the many reasons why we have several long-standing clients. Many of the companies based at The Gattinetts have had offices on site since the development was built.

Location – The Gattinetts is just 10 miles, or a 15-minute drive, from Ipswich or Colchester so it is easily accessible for staff and customers. It means you can draw on staff and clients from both areas. The site also benefits from free parking, which means more money in the pocket for you and your workforce.

Workspace – Sometimes out of town offices that create the right impression can be difficult to find – especially if you don’t want to pay exorbitant prices for your office space. However, The Gattinetts has office space available for a variety of businesses from small office units through to larger office suites suitable for a range of businesses from internet marketing or SEO companies, to shipping companies, web design firms and public relations firms.

Flexibility – An office lease is a big commitment and lengthy leases can be off-putting. The Gattinetts, however, offer flexible leases to suit individual requirements and the minimum lease is one year, with three months’ notice. Service charges and parking are also included in the rent.

Facilities – The Gattinetts is an attractive site with a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Facilities include an on-site nursery, so you or your staff can drop their youngest off before work, happy in the knowledge that they are close by. Entrance to the development is via security gates and a key fob – so you know that safety is our top priority. The village of East Bergholt has a range of facilities including pubs, a post office (in the Co-op) and shops, which are all within walking distance of the site.
