Facilities at Portsmouth Enterprise Centre on Quartremaine Road have been improved to support local businesses. The reception area has been redesigned to include a new accessible business hub and events space. Three new meeting rooms have also been created and are already generating additional income for the centre. New energy saving LED lighting was also installed.
Alan Lowe, Enterprise Centres Manager said
“Our reception area was a dead space, not used by our businesses and did not fully meet the needs for people with disabilities.
The refurbishment of these facilities is helping us to meet changing business needs for smaller, affordable offices and connected co-working, drop-in spaces.
The new office accommodation has already attracted two new businesses to the centre. The new meeting rooms are also popular with both tenants and external businesses and generating income.”
The new business hub space at Portsmouth Enterprise Centre has already been used by Get Set Solent to support Portsmouth’s small businesses and is the venue for the council’s monthly First Friday Networking event.
This refurbishment project was a collaboration between the council’s building projects team and M&E team.
Portsmouth Enterprise Centre is one of three enterprise centres run by the council as part of the economic development team.
