City Business Centre was first extended and became a business centre in 1980. Following refurbishment by Needspace? the two storey building now comprises 26 smart, modern self-contained units with parking on site, suitable for office, workshop or retail use.
“City Business Centre has many benefits that appeal to a broad range of customers”, says Edward Snowdon, Sales & Marketing Manager at Needspace?
“All the town’s amenities are close by, as is easy access to Gatwick and London by rail. “Taking on a long lease can be a big commitment for a small business, particularly a start-up, movers from a home office or an enterprise that’s growing quickly. Here, the minimum licence starts at just three months, and it’s easy to change the size of space you need as your business changes.
“That said, we also have businesses who have really put down roots at Needspace? too, customising their units into showrooms, studios and even clinics!
“Some other customers here are part of much bigger organisations. They might be here to cut travel by working closer to home, to service their own customers in the region – or overseas, as we’re so handy for Gatwick – or need a project office in the area for a time.
“One thing that’s common across the board is that it’s been an unsettling period recently – politically and economically – for business decision makers”, Edward reflects. “Needspace? is part of the Wates Group, a family company established in 1897 that has grown into one of the UK’s largest most financially secure companies in the construction sector – so we’re in the unique position of being able to offer both stability and flexibility as required!
“For anyone locally who is wondering if their business would benefit from a more versatile, cost-effective workspace moving forward, it’s really worth paying us a visit at City Business Centre.”
