Following a sustained period of high demand at their Benton Office Park in Horbury, where 24 of the 25 existing suites are now let, Orion Office Express have decided to create and release additional business space which will be ready for occupation later this month.
The development off Bennett Avenue was designed to facilitate start-up companies with competitive rates and a zero-cost set-up package which aims to provide fully operational business space within 24 hours if needed. It has proved to be extremely popular with both start-up and established businesses and many have outgrown their original space but continued their tenancy with a move to a larger suite. Further suites are currently being fully refurbished to provide flexible configurations in sizes ranging from 136 square feet to 457 square feet.”
Jo Lumb of Orion Office Express said: ““Tenancies are available from as little as six months and we keep start-up costs low to encourage small, home-based businesses to take the plunge and escape that sense of isolation by becoming part of a community of like-minded companies, where they can network and share knowledge, ideas and contacts. Our lettings activity has been brisk for some time and it speaks volumes that, when their success demands larger space, tenants choose to stay with us rather than relocate.”
“Companies like 6B Digital, Sten Architecture and Angel Care are choosing to move within Benton Office Park and continue to grow here. It demonstrates that we provide an attractive base for all types of companies and not just a launch pad for start-ups. The second floor of one of the units has earned the unofficial title of the ‘fast-track floor’ as several businesses have started there, quickly thrived and moved to larger suites within the complex. We have a flexible approach to lettings – if a business outgrows its original office space before the end of the lease period we look to accommodate the tenant in a larger suite whenever possible.”
“Our standard set-up package provides furniture, telephone, broadband and intruder alarm system. Overheads are also low with only business rates, telephone line rental, calls and broadband to consider. Our BT lease line provides dedicated broadband which is exclusive to Benton Office Park, offering superior reliability to non-dedicated broadband services found at other business parks. That facility has been a significant factor in attracting and retaining tenancies with digital companies.”
