Business Centre of the Month for October: Portal Business Centres, Dallam Court, Warrington

At Search Office Space we like to pay tribute to our venue partners’ outstanding spaces and impeccable services, especially through our Business Centre of the Month award.

So on that note, we would like to announce October’s winner: Portal Business Centres Warrington centre – Dallam Court. Congratulations!

Now let’s get to specifics, what makes this business centre the ideal workplace?

For starters, Portal benefits from a prime location, near Warrington town centre; this translates into a wealth of facilities nearby including shops, restaurants and bars.

And it doesn’t end there, transport is another key selling point: both Warrington Central and Warrington Bank Quay train stations are only five minutes away from the centre, and travellers also benefit from having Manchester International and Liverpool John Lennon airports within easy reach, both under a thirty-minute drive.

Portal’s values truly stand out, and the company believes in treating businesses separately and delivering that unique personal touch to everyone. This can be seen through the relationships the centre has fostered, as its longest client has been with Portal for 18 years.

Portal strives to make every experience incredibly positive, and as an independent brand, it achieves this by providing tenants with simple and direct access to the senior management team, on a daily basis. Decisions are quickly made, and in an extremely practical and efficient manner.

Moreover, the centre’s in-house specialist IT knowledge also saves tenants both time and money. This superb benefit couldn’t be more convenient, as it’s also an on-going support to clients, from the start-up phase and throughout clients’ time with Portal.

All business types are easily accommodated, as the centre caters to a diverse portfolio, ranging from SME’s to large corporates.

There’s also opportunities to meet and network with like-minded clients, at the centre’s monthly event, Fruit Cake Friday. The initiative allows clients to meet the other companies within the centre as well as a range of local businesses, and it also brings a refreshing sense of community to Portal’s workplace.

And last but not least, we asked Kerri McKenna (Portal’s centre manager) what she enjoys the most about her job, and she had this to say:

I love the fact that my job is so different on a daily basis; it can be meeting new clients and showing them around the centre or being invited to events around the North West.

I feel so honoured to be part of the Portal team and work under Sallie Maskrey with her 25 years of experience. I am constantly learning and developing my role with new systems and processes, keeping an open mind and always looking to enhance my professionalism.

Once again, congratulations to Portal Business Centres!
