Location, Location, Location – If you are setting up a company in Essex and Suffolk, finding business units in the right area, within easy reach of your customers, goes a long way to helping your business stand its ground even in the toughest of times. After all, there will be meetings to attend with customers and financial backers, and, depending on your organisation, deliveries to be made.

It is important to find a business location close enough to highly populated areas to be close to your customers and to attract the right staff. Business units at The Gattinetts are ideal for start-ups as the complex is close to the A12 and is just ten miles (a 10 minute car journey) from the large towns of Ipswich and Colchester and a one hour train journey from Manningtree to London Liverpool Street. The Gattinetts is also on a bus route, so it is easy to reach for staff members who don’t drive.

In addition to this, The Gattinetts offers free parking, which saves any additional costs, as you, your staff and customers don’t have to fork out on substantial car parking fees.

Flexible Rental Agreements – Being as accurate as you can about your income and outgoings is vital to help keep your business afloat. For a start-up company, it is important to choose units that don’t charge extortionate rents or tie you into long contracts.

At The Gattinetts, we offer much lower rents compared to equivalent town centre premises and we also offer short term leases of 12 months minimum.

In addition to this, we have a wide range of office units to rent, from small business units to larger premises of up to 2700 square feet. This means that as your business grows you can choose to rent a larger unit within the same complex without all the hassle and upheaval of renting new premises elsewhere.

Attractive Offices and Business Complex – Image goes a long way in helping to promote your company and if you are holding face-to-face meetings, you will want an office that gives the right impression. Office units at The Gattinetts are light, airy and full of character. They are all well heated, with some offices having under-floor heating to keep them cosy, even in winter. The complex is also set on well maintained land which provides an attractive environment to work in.

In addition to this, if you want to host an important meeting or presentation away from the office (for confidentiality purposes and to prevent distractions), we have a conference room available to hire for a small fee.

Additional Storage Facilities and Workshops – At The Gattinetts, we offer more than just offices and business units. Our secure complex also has range of storage facilities and workshops to rent, for business or domestic use.

This enables you to rent additional storage space as and when needed (to store stock or old files and furniture) and if you require workshop facilities, these are also available within the same complex. On-site storage space and workshops provide the ultimate in convenience as they are within easy reach of your office premises.

Networking Possibilities – As The Gattinetts is a designated business complex, there are a host of organisations on the same site that you could work with to mutual benefit. From financial services to design, fitness companies, and promotional organisations, these could all be beneficial to your company, or to your own well-being.

Getting to know other business owners on-site can help open a world of possibilities. The Gattinetts provides a sense of community – something that you are unlikely to get in a busy town centre location.

On-Site Nursery – If you have very young children, finding a nursery with a good reputation and close to your office premises can be hard to find. Fortunately, The Gattinetts has an on-site nursery – Lavender Hall Kindergarten – which is convenient for parents who are also rushed off their feet as company directors.

Lavender Hall Kindergarten is a reputable nursery providing a safe and secure environment for your children. As it is sited only steps away from your workplace, this is one less thing for you to worry about.
