Congratulations to this fantastic centre for winning this prestigious award which showcases and recognises the hard work of specific business centres. We are thrilled to present it to Regus who have been providing businesses with first class office space since 1989, and who now have centres in over 550 global cities.

Sales Manager, James Thornton, accepting the Business Centre Excellence AwardI caught up with Sales Manager, James Thornton, to find out how he felt about winning the award. James has been working for Regus for 6 years, having fulfilled many roles within the company, and has been Sales Manager over at Breakspear Park for 6 months. James immensely enjoys his job because ‘I love meeting new people and my job allows me to engage with some really interesting people on a daily basis.”

James describes the centre as having a ‘wow-factor’, and this was certainly evident the moment I stepped into the building. The enormous atrium that greets visitors upon entering immediately creates an impressive and prestigious atmosphere, and the centre is situated on a 16-acre, beautifully kept plot of land.

“The centre has its own Costa Coffee,” says James, “which often tempts me out from behind my desk! There is also an excellent restaurant here which offers subsidised food for tenants.” In addition to these superb facilities, the centre also boasts air conditioning, reception staff and support teams, kitchen and lounge areas, state-of-the-art technology and meeting rooms of varying sizes, making it a fantastic place to rent office space.

The building is a great place to network with other businesses, and in the future “we are hoping to do more work with the local Chamber of Commerce which would be great for clients in terms of meeting other local businesses”, says James. “We also do a lot of work with the Federation of Small Businesses and are hosting an event in the atrium in June which will be a fantastic opportunity.”

The business centre currently stands at an impressive 98% occupancy, with just one office left to rent. This demonstrates the hard work that the team have put in: “it is nice to be recognised for our efforts”, says James. “Hopefully this can be the first of many awards – perhaps we should invest in a trophy cabinet in preparation!”

Search Office Space would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Breakspear Park, and wish them the best of luck for the future.
