The Home Office offers new base for local businesses
The Home Office, fully serviced workspaces for individuals and small businesses, has now launched in Tring, Hertfordshire. Pennyroyal Court, next-door to The Court Theatre on Station Road, has undergone a dramatic refurb and the new look was unveiled prior to Christmas at a preview launch event. The Home Office offers a truly unique work environment, blending the building’s character features with the latest technology and connectivity.
Owned by David Evans MBE, Pennyroyal Court houses his various social enterprise and start-up operations. The building is so vast that he decided to offer serviced office facilities to local businesses to make full use of the excellent location and facilities. The cost of commuting into London, not to mention the time spent, could be significantly reduced for those that might decide to base themselves closer to home. Others, that currently work from home, will benefit hugely from joining a community with first class facilities at their fingertips.
Aimed at freelancers, consultants, remote workers and small businesses, The Home Office members can choose from various flexible packages ranging from a regular ‘hot desk’ for a fixed short term to an annual lease of full private offices for up to four people. Prices start from £220/month – just £10 a day with an average month containing about 22 working days. All members will benefit from print and IT amenities, high speed WiFi, meeting rooms, conference facilities and a self-service cafeteria with full kitchen. There are a host of added extras available such as post and package handling, Reception services, member networking events and breakout spaces.
The Home Office aims to attract a community of like-minded businesses that do not directly compete, therefore supporting each other with potential growth opportunities. In order to achieve this harmonious environment, members will need to apply and will be offered space on a first come, first served basis as long as their business activities fit well alongside neighbour offerings. Personal Development opportunity is a key USP of The Home Office, with regular workshops and training across a host of subjects available to members.
The whole building and all users run off a central system which manages account and contract setup, card credit for printing and café use, meeting room bookings and more. Members will be totally self-sufficient whilst always being able to access on-site support services.
Meeting spaces are available for hire by non-members. Competitive half and full day packages offer flexible and professional rooms for gatherings, including full Concierge service and everything required to host delegates.
The Home Office is also creating local jobs; a core team of maintenance, reception, concierge and HR staff keep the building running smoothly. The latest vacancies are available to view on The Home Office social media pages.
Daisy Evans, Director of The Home Office, is excited to bring such flexible working options to the local market, and comments: ‘We’re really proud of the renovations we have made to achieve The Home Office feeling. It’s such a beautiful historic building, we have complimented this with a fresh and comfortable working environment. The local area is crying out for ‘working laptop space’. I intend to grow a likeminded and vibrant working community here.We won’t be homing competitive businesses, which will present lots of opportunities for cross-selling and new business for our members. Our early adopters are already loving what we offer!’
