officebroker.com Business Centre of the Month: November 2010
Thremhall Park, Stansted
Built on the site of an ancient 15th century priory in 12 acres of parkland, Stansted-based Thremhall Park is an excellent centre that is justifiably proud of both its heritage, and the business service it offers to clients today.
With a long list of glowing reviews from tenants, Thremhall Park is clearly on the button for customer service and has created a quality, supportive environment for businesses to thrive and grow.
A number of reviews have been written by clients who have been located at the centre for several years, such as Bruce Wright from Pathfinders, who commented that the last two years have been ΓÇ£very enjoyableΓÇ¥, and he attributed much of this to the centreΓÇÖs ΓÇ£outstanding team of peopleΓÇ¥.
He added: ΓÇ£The actual facilities are first rate and the setting is magnificent. ItΓÇÖs hard to be critical and I would not hesitate to recommend them.ΓÇ¥
Chris Glancey from Avalon Aero Ltd commented earlier this year that he and his team ΓÇ£thoroughly enjoyedΓÇ¥ their tenancy at Thremhall Park over the past 2 and a half years, adding: ΓÇ£The staff have always been helpful and created a professional environment that our customers were always impressed by.ΓÇ¥
ItΓÇÖs this high level of service that caught the attention of officebroker.comΓÇÖs Managing Director Jim Venables.

ΓÇ£We have worked with Thremhall Park for several years, and during that time we have enjoyed a great relationship with the team who are always prompt and efficient.
ΓÇ£In fact, it was our Consultant for the region ΓÇô Marcus Shelton ΓÇô who recommended Thremhall Park for the award based on their excellent offering to clients. Over the years we have sent many clients to Thremhall Park and each time we are confident that they will have a great tour and be well looked after by the team.ΓÇ¥
Commenting on the business centre, Marcus said:
ΓÇ£I have been there and it really is fantastic. ItΓÇÖs in an idyllic location of 12 acres of land and the on-site support team is fantastic. ItΓÇÖs certainly one of the best presented centres I work with.ΓÇ¥
Vibrant business community
Formerly home to an ancient priory, a private residential house, and then used an army base during World War II, the whole site is Grade II listed to protect its heritage and many interesting features have been restored and retained, including a walled garden and a moat.
Now home to a vibrant business community, Thremhall Park accommodates a wide range of clients including IT companies, financial advisors, and clothing and bag designers. The location and layout of the estate also naturally appeals to lifestyle organisations, and the centre is home to a well-being company located in a building within the walled garden, along with a yoga group.
Sales & Marketing Manager Maya Currell commented that, since opening in 2007, they have worked closely with officebroker.com, and have consistently been around 85% occupied for nearly four years.

ΓÇ£Our small team of Centre Manager, Sales and Marketing Manager, Property Manager and Receptionist offers the highest levels of customer service to all of our clients,ΓÇ¥ commented Maya, ΓÇ£be they in our serviced offices, meeting room clients, or virtual office clients.
ΓÇ£Some of our clients have been with us since we opened four years ago, and have progressed from a two-person office to 20+ employees. The professional environment and business support means that our clients can go about their daily business and leave the admin, IT and telephony support to us.ΓÇ¥
Commenting on becoming officebroker.comΓÇÖs Business Centre of the Month in November, Maya said that the team at Thremhall Park are ΓÇ£thrilledΓÇ¥ to have won the award.
ΓÇ£As an independent business centre, located close to the busy hub of Stansted Airport in 12 acres of parkland, we feel that we offer a genuinely different experience for our clients,ΓÇ¥ she added. ΓÇ£For us, customer service combined with great value is the key to our success, and feedback that we get from our clients confirms that we are providing both!ΓÇ¥
The team will now combine their celebration of the award with a Christmas go-karting day for their clients at Rye House in Hoddesdon. As Maya comments, ΓÇ£It will be competitive!ΓÇ¥
