Enterprise North East Trust (Enterprise) today (DATE) announces that the occupancy rates for business centres in Aberdeen, Stonehaven, Thainstone (Inverurie), Oldmeldrum, Westhill are 100%.  The occupancy levels in the Enterprise Business Centre in Aberdeen have risen from 86% in 2010 to 100% for 2011, whilst Stonehaven, has sustained its 100% occupancy levels since November 2009.  Fraserburgh Business Centre, which reached an all time high of 70% occupancy last year, is nearing full capacity with its remaining two offices for lease, recently reserved by interested tenants.  Across the portfolio, Portlethen, Turriff and the Crichiebank Business Centre in Inverurie only have one or two offices available for lease and Peterhead has only two of its six offices available, as four have also been recently reserved by prospective tenants.   Enterprise also manages centres in Tayside and has reported 100% occupancy of its Brechin based centre.  Space is vacant at the purpose-built Newmachar Business Centre, with three offices on the ground floor and three on the first floor, available on flexible lease terms.

Karen Pugh, Director: Business Centres, at Enterprise North East Trust (Enterprise) says, “Occupancy levels have remained consistently high for 2011 and this is extremely encouraging.  The flexible lease terms and adaptable nature of our office space has made our business centres a popular choice with small businesses.  A large number of enquiries we receive are from people looking for office space for less than 10 people.

“Our tenants range from sole traders to larger organisations employing up to 50 members of staff and companies operating in the oil and gas sector make up the majority of our tenants. Businesses in the charitable, healthcare, communications, IT and financial sectors are also emerging as popular tenants. 

“Enterprise operates and manages a range of centres across Aberdeen City and Shire, this provides companies with the ability to spread their project teams around the area or locate their business within close proximity to road, rail and air links. The office space available at Newmachar Business Centre, which is located just ten minutes from Aberdeen airport would be perfect for small businesses, with smaller units available on the ground floor to accommodate 1 – 6 people.  Larger offices are available on the first floor from 925 square feet to 1173 square feet. The all inclusive monthly fee includes electricity, cleaning, security, maintenance, car parking and telephone answering, making it a cost effective option for small businesses.”
