Basepoint in Weymouth celebrates ten years in business!

For almost ten years, the Basepoint Business Centre in Weymouth has provided high quality workspace for small to medium sized businesses. The company is celebrating its 10th birthday this year and has seen over 100 businesses come and go during that time, most of them expanding and moving to larger premises in or around Weymouth.

But not all tenants choose to move on. One company that arrived at Basepoint Weymouth before the tarmac was even laid is still there today, ten years on! Uniwell Software Developments [] was the very first tenant to arrive in 2009 and still occupies the same workshop!

Basepoint has 24 fully equipped and managed business centres across the country. In Weymouth there are 31 purpose built workshops and light industrial units occupied by a whole range of businesses - from electronics companies and furniture manufacturers to mobility shops and training providers.

Nigel Reed, the Centre Manager, says "the Weymouth centre is one of the most successful in the country. We always have high levels of occupancy thanks to our flexible terms and adaptable workspace. There's also a real sense of business community - we hold regular networking sessions and our tenants tend to deal with each other whenever they can."

The workshops are rented on four week licenses with no complicated or lengthy lease terms. They can be adapted to accommodate most businesses and if your company expands, you just give a month's notice and move to a larger unit! The Basepoint team also offers business support, advice and mentoring and members can take advantage of the Basepoint Business Portal which allows them to buy in products and services at highly competitive prices.

The rent is all inclusive and tenants can use the meeting rooms when they need to meet with clients or suppliers - a superb benefit for small businesses. In fact, any local business can book a meeting room at Basepoint and if they apply for a free members‚ card online at, they are entitled to a discounted rate.

Many business centres charge a fee per person, but Basepoint's meeting rooms are available at a flat rate for each room, currently £15.00 per hour for non-members and £12.50 per hour for members. All the equipment you need is on site, and you can order refreshments and lunch if required. As a member, you're also entitled to use the facilities of the other 24 Basepoint centres around the country.

Many Basepoint tenants started their businesses from home but reached a stage where they needed more space, better facilities or a more professional look. The flexible rental terms and the "easy in, easy out" licence agreement gives business owners more control over their cashflow and helps them to keep a close eye on expenditure.
