Business Centre of the Month: Thorpe Park, Pure Offices
I can’t believe it’s July so soon and we have already had half a year of fantastic business centres winning our award! We’ve travelled from North England, to the South, out into Europe… and who knows where it will go next! For July, we are proud to announce we have settled in Yorkshire with Thorpe Park, Leeds, part of the Pure Offices family.
Having bought the centre in October 2012, Pure Offices now have 19 business centres across the UK on offer. Since then, they have refurbished the entire centre and are filling it with clients fast!
With over 47,000 sq ft of space and a triple height glass roofed atrium in the centre of the building, Pure's Thorpe Park centre is impressive, and the Business Park where it is situated hopes to expand in the near future by building a further hotel, retail outlets and restaurants, whilst adding to their landscaped park - making the area even more appealing to companies.
Following the recent refurbishment, the centre boasts new client kitchens, breakout space, 26 brand new suites, washrooms and shower rooms and outdoor seating by the pond – perfect for this bout of good weather we’ve been having! There’s ample free parking, easy access to the M1 and to Leeds city centre.
Catching up with the team at Thorpe Park, they told us, “Customer service is our main focus and we want our clients to enjoy coming into work. We regularly hold events to encourage clients to take a break from their desk, come down and engage with like-minded people in the building. We have found everyone to be very enthusiastic with our efforts, particularly charity fund raising events such as our coffee mornings, our treadmill marathon and wear-a-onesie-to-work day!
Encouraging a ‘happy at work’ ethos, we regularly take cakes round the offices, we bought in ice creams last summer when the weather was uncomfortably hot and we have just held our first client Summer Party with a hog roast – all of which we offered for free!”
But, it’s not all fun and games! The team work really hard to keep the building in tip top condition. Taking businesses with one to 30 employees, there’s a lot that goes on behind the scenes to make sure everything runs smoothly. Lettings have been going at full pace and the team hope to be fully occupied within a matter of months. And it's no wonder - with a fun atmosphere and a dedicated team, Thorpe Park looks like a fantastic place to work, which is why we chose them as our Business Centre of the Month!
Congratulations again to the centre on winning for July, and we look forward to hearing more about you in our Q&A later in the month!
