Bowman House Holds the Key for Businesses Seeking New Offices
A growing number of businesses in Wiltshire are reluctant to commit to long-term contracts for office space because of economic uncertainty surrounding Brexit.
But an expanding business centre in the county believes it has the solution for companies seeking greater flexibility when moving to new offices in unpredictable times.
Bowman House, which opened in in Royal Wootton Bassett in 2013, is offering businesses modern, multi-purpose office space without the pressure of committing to long-term lease arrangements.
Estate manager for the centre, Graeme Stephenson, says that approach has clear advantages with so many question marks over the economy.
“We are seeing a real increase in businesses which are reluctant to be tied into long-term arrangements because it’s so difficult to know what the future holds,” said Mr Stephenson.
At Bowman House, owned by Wrest Park Limited, offices are leased on an initial three-month period, followed by a monthly rolling contract.
“It gives businesses much greater flexibility because once the initial three months are up, they only need to give a month’s notice instead of being locked into a three-year lease,” added Mr Stephenson.
Analysis shows that companies which have moved to Bowman House – and other Wrest Park business centres – in Bedford, Peterborough and Slough – are only paying a five per cent premium for that extra flexibility and the benefits of a fully serviced environment
It is a particularly attractive option for fledgeling companies and home-based businesses considering taking that crucial first step into a credible business address.
Bowman House, which is just three miles from junction 16 on the M4, has expanded rapidly over the past four years, adding another 16 offices to its portfolio in 2016. as well as ample free parking
It now has 70 stylish offices in a range of sizes, from a single person up to 10 members of staff.and with some space available the opportunity exists to occupy adjoining offices if required.
The business centre also comes with the advantage of a reception desk, staffed by an experienced customer service team who operate on behalf of all the clients which means that businesses don’t need to worry about employing their own receptionist.
The centre is also equipped with conference facilities and training rooms and can accommodate businesses requiring manufacturing units as well as office space.
“Our aim is to continue to invest in flexibility and cost-effective solutions at every level for the business community in Wiltshire and the Thames Valley” said Mr Stephenson.
