A Decade of Success at the Knowledge Centre

A real party atmosphere abounded at Wyboston Lakes when tenants of the Knowledge Centre celebrated a decade of success since the serviced office centre was opened in December 2005.

St Neots, Cambridgeshire, United Kingdom, January 30, 2016 --(PR.com)-- More than 70 people representing over 38 businesses that have built their businesses at Wyboston Lakes downed their pens, switched off their computers and met their colleagues to mark the 10th anniversary of the Knowledge Centre.

Established in the mid 1980s as a conference and meeting centre, Wyboston Lakes opened its first serviced offices in 2000. The superb location and the wide range of complementary business facilities available on site made this an ideal environment for incubator and growing businesses. In 2005, the Knowledge Centre was constructed which provided a range of furnished and unfurnished offices with state-of-the-art communications infrastructure already installed.

David Triggs, partner in Flourish Financial Planning and one of the most recent tenants said, “We started up as a firm of independent financial advisors some 6 months ago, and wanted to hit the ground running so the Knowledge Centre was ideal for us. Everything we needed such as utilities, telephones, and broadband were here and ready to go, so we literally moved in and started operating straight away. It simply took away all the stress and hassle associated with starting a new business and we were able to focus on the real business of servicing our clients.”

Lawford Exhibits is an Independent UK based full service exhibition stand design and project management company which moved to the Knowledge Centre in 2006. Director Francesca Rabjohns said, “We have clients visiting us from all over the globe. Wyboston is easy to access whether by road, rail or even air travel, and having the hotel, restaurant and meeting facilities here on site is a real advantage. Considering all the facilities available, the costs are very reasonable, and the flexibility of being able to take on additional office space at short notice makes the Knowledge Centre excellent value for money.”

Wyboston Lakes’ director of business development Brian Payton commented, “Since we opened the Knowledge Centre, we have been fortunate in having a very high level of occupancy by forward thinking and successful entrepreneurial companies. Such has been the popularity of Wyboston Lakes as a prestigious business centre that we now have 6 separate serviced centres to cope with the ongoing demand.”
