For the third consecutive year Basepoint has scooped the prestigious gong, which went to Basepoint Ipswich last year and Basepoint Southampton in 2009.
The awards, which have been established for 10 years, were held at London’s Park Lane Hotel and according to the judging panel, standards were “extremely high this year, but the winners of each category shone out for their commitment and passion for customer engagement and service”.
Nominations for the best business centres are submitted by clients to the BCA, and the ‘workspace of the year’ award is attributed to business centres that are considered to add value to their clients’ business, as well as providing clean, well-managed work space.
John Luchford, Centre Manager at The Joiner’s Shop – newly crowned 2011 Workspace of the Year Award winner – said:
“As a newly appointed centre manager, I was content with being shortlisted along with two other Basepoint centres; Swindon and Newhaven. When the Chatham centre was announced as the winner, it was quite a shock and a huge honour.
“Winning is testament to all the effort we have put in to ensure that our licensees thrive within a positive environment. I believe in the opportunities and support Basepoint offers to SMEs and this award is something I will share with all of my colleagues as recognition of all of our hard work and determination to succeed.”
The Chatham-based business centre is located in the heart of The Historic Dockyard, and has been providing serviced offices, studios and workshops to small and medium sized businesses since 2009. A total of 44 creative businesses are currently based there, ranging from graphic designers and specialist printers to engravers.
