"We are close to the end of our first year at Newhaven Enterprise Centre and only have praise to the excellent service we have received from all the team at Basepoint. The team (Abbi, Lucie and Dave) have become an extension to our own team enabling us to concentrate on our clients. We are due to extend our office needs within the next year and Basepoint gives us the flexibility to do this and have no concerns that this will be dealt with ease and professionalism as they have always shown. Looking forward to our future here at Newhaven Enterprise Centre”

Zoe Wyman, STL planning & design solutions

Basepoint has provided a seamless process that has helped me immensely in securing office space for my business. The whole team have been extremely accommodating, helpful and a pleasure to deal with. I would recommend Basepoint for a business owner looking to secure office space.

Charles Rowland, Preston Virtual

Newhaven Enterprise Centre is a great place to work; well-organised, spotlessly clean and with a hardworking team of support staff who take care of deliveries and keep you informed of all the activities going on around the centre. My work means I’m away from the office quite a lot so to know that that I can lock my unit door and know that everything is taken care of is a big advantage. I’d like to say a big thanks to the management team for all their help over their years. I would definitely recommend to a friend.

Andy Mitchell, Photonic Research Systems Limited

The inspiration for the business came from my father Jeremy and I am thrilled to be located in the newly extended Enterprise Business Centre. I really wanted my business to enjoy the kudos and fantastic facilities on offer to new businesses in Newhaven. Basepoint who manage the units have been great in helping me secure a unit and settle in and I feel proud when clients come to see me.

Oliver Dredge, Good Life Innovations

It has been really nice to have support from someone who really understands the issues and challenges that are faced by people who have learning disabilities, and also who appreciates how much work our dedicated staff do to support them. Thank you.

Jim Apted, Community & Fundraising Co-ordinator, Fitzroy Newhaven

I would like to mention how very thankful I was with the help I received from your maintenance gentleman the other day, I greatly appreciated his going the extra mile and helping me. You have a great team there, and I include your Regional Manager in that who very kindly helped us sort out a server problem recently, and of course not forgetting the lovely cleaning lady who always acknowledges me with a smile and hello. Good staff are hard to come by and are the back bone of any business, and you have a great team.

Maria Lambert, Mr Cycles UK

Just wanted to say thanks for the hire of the meeting room today. Coffee was well received. The assessor was warmly welcomed and thought the clean environment was the right image for our business. What was planned to be a day’s full audit and assessment was reduced to half a day, due to his impression of our professionalism and the venue. We are on course for achieving the Sword of Honour next year for a first class presentation. Our heartfelt thanks to you both.

John Lawrence, Tennyson Suite Limited

Thank you for the great Networking events the Centre runs at Newhaven. Newhaven Enterprise Centre always has interesting speakers and attracts such a diverse group of business people from far and wide. At one of the meetings last summer and just by chance I introduced myself to someone as I was about to leave, that brief encounter ended up with the most valuable piece of work I have had in the last 5 years, wow! I always go networking with an open mind, seldom with an expectation of finding immediate work, although at that meeting I did! Mostly networking is about information gathering and feeling the business buzz; sometimes seeding ideas for myself and my business. Apart from actually delivering the services I promote, networking is the most important business activity I do. Even more special about the Newhaven hub is that it’s free, always being greeted with a smile, and having an excellent buffet lunch.

Mark Hosken, Openfileuk

Thanks to the management team, the hard work they put in to organising these successful and enjoyable Networking Hubs is appreciated.

Richard Graham-Evans, Facio (UK) Ltd.

Dear the management team - Thank you very much for hosting the 1218 (Newhaven) squadron Annual Awards evening at the Enterprise Centre. The way you set up the space, the Audio Visual facilities, and the general business-like atmosphere helped to make the evening formal and fun. The cadets and staff felt the evening went very well and our raffle made £150 for squadron funds.

Ian Kerr, Newhaven Air Cadets Committee Member

Moving to Basepoint was the best business move we ever made, friendly and efficient staff and great networking opportunities with our centre colleagues and guests.

Steve Stubbs and Roger White, UK Cycle Labs

I would like to express how much I enjoy coming to work in the centre. The management team are always there to help, nothing is to much trouble for them and they do it all with a smile! I would also like to say how well maintained and clean the centre is.

Sarah Bower, Phil Stone Consultancy

I moved my business to the Newhaven Enterprise Centre around three months ago and it’s one of the best moves I have ever made. As I run a business that is out to help others improve their image, I need to make sure that my own image is right first. Many of my clients have remarked on how the centre has a very professional feel from the moment you walk in, to the moment they are sitting in my office. That has to be down to the way the management team makes everything run so smoothly.

Chris Nicholls – CN Creative

It should come as no surprise that the Newhaven Enterprise Centre is being nominated for the ‘Business of the Year’ category of this year’s Seahaven Awards. It is such a great place to work. The fabric of the Enterprise Centre has been intelligently designed with many built-in environmental considerations; automatic lighting based on passive sensors, rainwater harvesting for toilet flushing, solar panels for electricity generation being prime examples. The Centre provides a safe and secure environment for its tenants and visitors, with carefully monitored fire alarm and evacuation policies, and CCTV around the boundary and common areas. The management and day to day running of the Centre is both professional and friendly, with regular networking events to bring the occupants together. The training rooms within the Centre, using the latest in multimedia technology, are extremely popular with organisations within the private and public sectors on an hourly or daily basis, and represent great value. The Centre has been a springboard for countless businesses over the years, giving tentative entrepreneurs the opportunity to dip their toe into the piranha infested waters of commerce without the long term liabilities of a business lease. Established businesses can gain from this arrangement too, inasmuch as taking one’s exit can be effected without a prospective buyer having to factor in an unwanted or unnecessary property purchase. My business has operated from the Centre for more than 5 years. I would not dream of moving away

Michael C Steer, Celerity Payroll Services

As the Treasurer of Newhaven and Seaford Sea Cadets, and chief fundraiser, to have the support of the management team at the Newhaven Enterprise Centre is very important to us. We run our very successful Race Night from the Enterprise Centre, and use all the facilities there free of charge, which is a very considerable consideration. The Sea Cadets is a charitable organisation which gives opportunities to young people between the ages of 10 and 18 to make a difference and have fun at the same time. We have to raise all the money ourselves to run our Unit, and without the help of the management team, we would not survive.

Helen Macaulay, HM Bookkeeping & Payroll Services Ltd

I would just like to put on record my sincere “thanks” for all the help and support that you and your team give me as a non-resident, but member of the local business community. I am always made to feel very welcome when I am meeting business clients in the break out area and come to all the fabulous networking events that the Newhaven Enterprise Centre put on (Plus the opportunity of a guest presenter role). When I hire meeting and training rooms the speed of response and customer service is exemplary. The management team have also kindly referred me to potential new clients Thanks again to you and the team for all you do for me and my business The local business community is lucky to have you David Foster, David Foster Associates

David Foster, David Foster Associates

Crofton took occupation of unit 8 at the beginning of September 2012 having had a virtual office for some time prior. Based on our experiences since moving in we wished we had made the decision much earlier. Facilities at the centre suit our needs perfectly and its location is very convenient for travel by road or rail, the railway station being only a couple minutes away by foot. The centre management are very helpful and delightful. In Summary it is a great place to be!

Shaun Barkshire, Crofton Design

If it wasn’t for Basepoint, I might not still be here as a business. I moved here just over two years ago, and it’s been perfect for me. Now, we’re expanding as a company, and I’m looking to take on new units.

James Irvine, Renewtech Energy

Prior to moving in to the Centre, I had on a number of ocassions visited the Centre and had always been very impressed by the facilities of the tenants units, and the professional manner of the staff at Reception. So therefore when I commenced my business, I knew the Newhaven Enterprise Centre was my first option and I have not regretted it for one moment. All the staff are so helpful and will go out of their way to assist in any way they can, even assisting in sourcing furniture and moving offices, nothing ever seems to be too much trouble for them. I would not hesitate in recommending any small to medium business to establish its offices at Newhaven Enterprise Centre and I just wished the Enterprise centre was here 20 years ago when I worked from home!

M Boxall, Shoreline Accountants Limited

We've been enjoying the offices at Basepoint for over a year now and honestly believe they are among the best in Sussex. The convenience of free on-site parking, several shared meeting rooms and break out areas are not only a benefit but also make the workplace more enjoyable. I regularly recommend the offices to everyone I meet and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. In addition, the Basepoint staff are extremely helpful, courteous, efficient and are the icing on the cake of a fabulous business centre.

Simon Smyth, Computer-Eyez

The unending helpful and welcoming attitude of the staff makes it a pleasure to work here. They give my clients and suppliers a friendly immediate impression to what, for them is a worrying situation. They provide considerable facilities for those start up business that feel a need to network with each other etc. It is a fresh new building, with excellent access, generally pleasant to work in an excellent location with plenty of unrestricted parking. The rents are reasonable and the immediate impression to all of my clients and suppliers reflects the positive and dynamic approach I have to resolve my client’s difficulties

Phil Stone

I attended a one day workshop at the NEC on a bleak, wet, cold, November day. The building was beautifully warm, the staff friendly and welcoming and the reception area is comfortable with filter coffee provided throughout the day. The room we worked in was well lit and had a glass wall which made it feel spacious. The building provides very modern up to date facilities and the training room had an overhead powerpoint projector and a smartboard. There was a work area and a break out area both of which had comfortable seating and the toilet facilities were not only very nearby but were clean and pleasant to use. I have attended training courses at many varied venues but the Newhave Enterprise Centre is certainly one of the best.

Sue Lucas - Sue Lucas Associates

Newhaven Enterprise Centre is good for me, my business and my clients. Disabled access, plentiful car parking, an environmentally friendly building, fairtrade coffee machine, and so much more

Dr Steve Waters - Aqua Medical

Just a note to thank you and your team for sorting out the training rooms that I have hired from you to run my recent training workshops and courses .

Director of David Foster Associates Limited

Many thanks for working with FitzRoy to raise funds for our service in Newhaven. It is great to have your support, along with the match funding offered by the ACT Foundation, and we look forward to getting involved with more events in the future. We really appreciate everything the Newhaven Enterprise Centre does, and already your donations have been earmarked for some alterations and improvements to the day centre. It was good to show you around and have an opportunity for you to meet some of the people we support in Newhaven.

Jan Dean, Fundraising manager FitzRoy

The meeting rooms at the Enterprise Centre are always very comfortable and well presented with any requested equipment ready on arrival. Staff at reception are always available, extremely helpful and accommodating before, during and after a booking.

NCDA at Newhaven Community Centre

Having come from a home office environment, we were completely delighted with our new office at Newhaven Enterprise Centre. The main thing that appeals immediately at NEC is the newness of the building; so clean, modern, professional and smart looking. This helps enable every day at work to be a pleasure, a place to go and work and enjoy your surroundings. Also, the cost of our unit, including the broadband and telephone, is so competitive and leaves us actually saving money each month for a work demise! Finally, the staff at NEC are extremely nice and helpful, finalising that ‘feel good at work factor’. Plus, ideal and ample parking to top it all off!!”

TAS Limited

We have now been at Basepoint Newhaven since March 2009. We would like to thank the staff for all their help and assistance provided when we moved in and since then, ensuring the smooth running of our business. The offices are ideally located and with a good broadband service which is vital to our business. The communal areas are bright and clean, and the onsite parking a definite plus.

M.D.O Associates Ltd

We were one of the first companies to occupy a unit and from day one the staff have been helpful and friendly. We find the centre pleasant, clean and well organised, and the security is excellent.

Denma Cleaning Services Ltd

I just wanted to say thank you again to you both for the excellent event organisation in advance and on the day and for your support of our Business Climate Change workshop on 26th May. The day as a great success and the catering was also highly rated by all the attendees, please pass on our thanks to the caterer.

East Sussex County Council's BETRE project.

The services provided for tenants are of high quality and professionally delivered. The communal and floor level catering areas, washroom facilities, and the meeting and conference room facilities are all furnished to a high standard, are always spotlessly clean, and always in good working condition. The individual support from the reception and administration staff has been excellent, always courteous and helpful to ourselves and to our guests.

BSBM Ltd

We have currently been here at the Centre for one year and continue to reap the benefits by providing a first class service in a first class environment - so we thank you for assisting our Company to achieve its goals with regard to its plans for continued growth.

John Lawrence - Tennyson Suite Limited

A4e Pathways have been renting office space since July 2008. On arrival the team were of enormous help and extremely supportive and understanding.I would not hesitate in recommending the Newhaven Enterprise Centre to anyone. It’s welcoming, clean, modern and a fun place to work.

A4e Pathways

Basepoint Centres is an impressive building with good access and car parking. The reception area is very modern, clean and well equipped. Here I met the management team who expertly manage the centre. I have never looked back. The unit they offered me was perfect, not too large and at a reasonable rent which included the business rates. That made everything much more affordable. I wasn’t tied into a long contract either just in case things didn’t work out. The unit was ideal to use as a training centre having car parking right outside and all the facilities of a modern office building to hand including a relaxation area. My students could use the kitchen area which has vending machines and tea and coffee making equipment.The units would suit a wide range of uses. I have converted mine into a training centre with a demonstration area and office. Heating is provided included in the cost, I only have to pay for the electricity that I use and it’s good to know most of that is produced by the large photovoltaic solar collectors on the building roof. This is not just a place to work but a thriving community involving many different types of businesses, each helping each other wherever they can. I have a Smart Board supplied by one company, my accounts and printing needs are looked after and there is always somebody around to help with advice. The management team are pro-active in organising network meetings, seminars, coffee mornings and a whole host of other activities to help a small business get off the ground and stay there.I would definitely recommend any small to medium size business seriously consider using these excellent facilities and hope that more centres like this are made available.

Renewable Technology Centre

I wish I’d moved here eight years ago, as it’s been such a positive step for our business. the staff are excellent and a pleasure to work with, and the additional services we have access to really make a difference to the way we come across to our clients. The centre is also in a great location, with excellent transport links.

John Lawrence, Tennyson Suite

The staff at Basepoint Newhaven are incredibly friendly and accommodating, and the building is kept immaculate. The facilities suit our needs perfectly, with ample parking and a variety of office sizes suitable should the business expand. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend using Basepoint Newhaven.
