Search Office Space and Targetspace have built up a strong relationship over the years, working on a number of successful deals, and receiving positive feedback from happy customers who have been placed within the iconic Centre Point business centre, in London’s West End.
Targetspace began operations in 2006, and have continued to deliver an exceptional quality of service to date. Being a small provider, Targetspace have large scale competition on their hands, but have managed to develop and grow, whist retaining a loyal client base. The provider now operates around 35,000sqft of serviced office space at Centre Point, with a steady and impressive occupancy rate of 80%.
Stephen Finnegan, Director of Sales and Operations has been with Targetspace from day one, and has experienced the highs and lows throughout the years. When presented with the Business Centre Excellence Award, Stephen stated how “unexpected and honoured Targetspace were to receive the recognition”, particularly due to being a smaller provider in a tough industry sector. Achieving the award reiterated Steve’s passion for the industry, and highlighted the fact that hard work and dedication pays off.

During the award presentation, I was able to talk with two of Stephen’s colleagues, Area Centre Manager, Dawn Oldfield, and Area Sales Manager, Sunny Bhalla. Both praised their team and staff at Centre Point, and wanted to thank them for their hard work, as the award would not have been achieved if it wasn’t for them. “The teams’ continued effort to build strong relationships, and deliver a consistently high level of service which resembles that of a hotel rather than a business environment has been a major factor in achieving this award”.
Along with Stephen, Dawn has also been with Targetspace since 2006, and works across their three London Centres, in Centre Point, 70 St Mary Axe and Wembley Point. I asked Dawn what she enjoys most about her job, and why she felt Centre Point deserved the award.
“Working across our three London centres means I get to deal with a variety of clients, from large corporate companies, to smaller businesses within the media and technology sectors. It’s also brilliant to work with Stephen and Sunny, and the rest of the team at Targetspace, who strive to achieve the best results for our clients”.

Area Sales Manager, Sunny joined Targetspace in May 2011 and hasn’t looked back. “Targetspace truly is a great company, and working for a product I believe in almost makes it easy. Centre Point is one of London’s most iconic buildings, offering stunning views across the city. It’s convenient and central location above Tottenham Court Road tube station is also a great selling point, not to mention the quality fit-out”. Stephen went on to add that “every office has a different view across London, and the Paramount Club at the top of the building provides the service of a members’ bar for clients and visitors to enjoy”.

When asked what the future has in store for Targetspace at Centre Point, the main focus was the retention of our solid client base and continuing with high level of service to our clients. With such a loyal client base – which is testament to the centre alone – Stephen, Dawn and Sunny hope to see their clients’ businesses expand and grow, so that their 85% occupancy rate can reach its 100% target. “In 2012 and 2013, we are looking to expand further as a business, possibly with some new business centre locations, which will provide the same level of quality service as Centre Point..
On a final note, Targetspace at Centre Point wanted to mention their long and proud partnership with Technology Company, essensys, who provide IT and communication solutions to the serviced offices within the business centre.
