New Chair will continue development of 'one stop shop' for small business
Dated 12 November 2009

Developing the unique nature of the public and private sector offering for small businesses housed under one roof at Enterprise House will remain the focus of attention over the next few years, according to the new Chairman of Teesdale Development Company Alistair Dinwiddie.


"Enterprise House's mix of public and private sector tenants offers an extensive community resource for small and start up business and social enterprise in Teesdale, " he said. "In one location small and new businesses, social enterprises and the local community can access Business Link, The Enterprise Agency, Radio Teesdale, Bishop Auckland College, Teesdale Village Halls and the Job Centre Plus as well as private businesses that can offer a range of useful services."

Mr Dinwiddie has taken over from previous chairman Tony Seaman who had held the position for the last eleven years and who was a founding member of the not for profit organisation the Teesdale Development Company which leases competitively priced fully serviced office space Enterprise House.

"Tony has played a key part in the successful development of Enterprise House and deserves a huge pat on the back for giving up so much of his time to making sure Teesdale has such a fantastic facility available to the business community," said Mr Dinwiddie.

"The next few years will be challenging for small and start up businesses and we believe it is essential to keep improving our offer and make sure that Enterprise House continues to be a complete one stop shop for business. We have recently completed a major refurbishment including installing a lift for the disabled and our latest initiative with the Enterprise Agency is the successful establishment of the Home Based Business Network, a club for people who run businesses from their home, which demonstrates the type of initiative our unique partnership can produce."

Enterprise House, which is based on the Harmire Enterprise Park provides affordable office space and virtual office facilities for all sizes and types of business. It offers a complete portfolio of services including 'next generation' internet access, hotdesking, rental of meetings rooms and a conference suite with audio visual and conferencing facilities, virtual office services, rental of office space and even a café area for casual meetings and brainstorming sessions.

A new networking club, which has been formed to provide support and networking opportunities for Teesdale home based businesses, has been launched by Enterprise House.
Dated 14 September 2009

Home Based Business Network Launch

The Home Based Business Network is designed for anyone in the Teesdale area who runs a business from home and will meet on the first Wednesday of the month at Enterprise House. The first event was successfully held on Wednesday 9th September.  

The Business Club has been set up by Enterprise House, one of the dale's leading business services providers, which is based at Harmire Enterprise Park in Barnard Castle.  The aim is to provide a club where people can meet once a month and network and socialise with others.

The next meeting is to be held on Wednesday 7th October at 9.30 am at Enterprise House.

"We are delighted with the response to our first meeting and a lot of useful contacts were made over coffee and cakes," said Julia Simpson, Enterprise House Customer Service Manager.

"We decided to set up the club because working from home can be very isolating sometimes and it can make it harder for people to access contacts and network in the same way as people who have an office facility," says Julia.  "Plus with having the Enterprise Agency based here as well as Business Link, there is plenty of expert advice on hand for businesses."

For further information on the Home Based Business Network contact Customer Services Manager Julia Simpson on 01833 696 750 or email info@e-house.co.uk




Enterprise House adds flexible working for micro businesses with hot desking and free wifi
Dated 14 July 2009

Micro and small businesses, which may struggle to maintain an office or just need more flexible working arrangements, can now access hot desking and benefit from free internet useage at Barnard Castle's leading serviced office and business centre, Enterprise House.

Enterprise House, which is based on the Harmire Enterprise Park, is owned by non profit making organisation Teesdale Development Company and offers affordable office space or virtual office facilities for all sizes and types of business.  An awareness campaign earlier in the year highlighted the additional services it has available for businesses and the self employed which include a café area and state of the art conference, meeting and event facilities.

"With occupants such as Business Link and The Enterprise Agency, Enterprise House has become a complete one stop shop for businesses based in Teesdale," says Teesdale Development Company Chairman Tony Seaman.

"With such a difficult economic climate it's often not possible or desirable for micro businesses to have a fulltime office facility so we wanted to expand our services to reflect that. The new services allow smaller businesses and starts ups a low cost way to present a more professional image for client meetings and a more flexible way of working."

Enterprise House now offers businesses of all sizes a complete portfolio of services including hotdesking, rental of meetings rooms and a conference suite with audio visual and conferencing facilities, a virtual office, rental of office space and even a cyber café for casual meetings and brainstorming sessions.

Enterprise House Wacky Races scores for comic relief

The cream of Barnard Castle's Harmire Enterprise Park and the Teesdale Mercury gathered on the green at lunchtime in front of S&A fabrications last Friday March 13th  2009 to take part in the inaugural Enterprise House Wacky Races in aid of comic relief.

Red Nose Day... Beautiful Ladies!

Despite a bleak day, spirits were high as the teams assembled resplendent in fancy dress. Races included the red nose and spoon, the three legged and the sack race with games materials kindly loaned from Gainford School.

Compered by Radio Teesdale's Malcom Proud clad in a fetching tartan inspired outfit, the laughter stopped once the games started with each team fiercely competing to win the coveted Enterprise House Games Trophy -  a bottle of wine. 

Red Nose Day...

S&A Fabrications eventually triumphed over the Britnett  'ladies' team with the Mercury coming in third after denouncing the widespread cheating of other competitors, most notably Enterprise House, who trailed in at last place following the disqualification of Radio Teesdale Chairman Alastair Dinwiddie.

"It was a great event and raised everybody's spirits," said Enterprise House Customer Services Manager Julia Simpson. "Most importantly, we raised over £220 for comic relief and we want to thank everybody who donated or who gave up their time to take part."

ENTERPRISE HOUSE OFFICE MAKEOVER INCLUDES INCREASED ACCESS FOR DISABLED 

Enterprise House Makeover Completed - Disabled Access Now Added

Barnard Castle's leading serviced office and business centre, Enterprise House, has undergone a significant makeover as part of its ongoing commitment to improve business facilities in the Teesdale area.

The makeover includes a new lift which allows disabled people access to the upper floor of the building. In addition, some of the corridors and walkways within Enterprise House have been widened for wheelchair access and improved lighting and easier to read fonts and a tactile carpet installed for the visually impaired.

The improved facilities for the disabled, which also includes a disabled toilet as well as lift access, will be highlighted on Enterprise House's new website www.e-house.co.uk. The website went live at the end of November and has already proved to be a successful addition to Enterprise House's awareness campaign Creative People, Creative Spaces, generating additional enquiries within weeks.

Both Durham County Council and Teesdale District Council helped contribute to the cost of the work.

The business resource centre, situated on the Harmire Enterprise Park, is owned by non profit making organisation Teesdale Development Company and offers affordable office space or virtual office facilities for all types of business. The organisation has plans for further improvements for disabled visitors including egress paths and a ramp for easy access into the building.

Chairman of Teesdale Development Company, Tony Seaman, said increasing access for the disabled to all parts of Enterprise House was a real achievement and would make Enterprise House an even more important business resource in the Teesdale community.

 "The new lift combined with existing disabled facilities will now allow us and the organisations and companies working from the building to offer a completely accessible 'one stop shop' for business facilities in the Teesdale area."

STATE OF THE ART ENTERPRISE HUB CELEBRATES 10 YEARS

A state of the art initiative designed to provide office space and facilities to help small and medium businesses in Teesdale celebrated its 10th birthday this week.

Enterprise House on the Harmire Enterprise Park, Barnard Castle has gone from strength to strength in the last ten years, adding in new i-space offices, designed to nurture business innovation in 2003, which offer the latest technology and facilities at flexible and low cost rates and further evolving its offer over the last few years to suit the growth of homeworking and hot desking.

Enterprise House now offers businesses of all sizes a complete portfolio of services including hotdesking, rental of meetings rooms and a conference suite with audio visual and conferencing facilities, a virtual office, rental of office space and even a cyber café for casual meetings and brainstorming sessions.

It has chosen the businesses that rent office space with care to add to the services it can offer. The building has become a one-stop shop for training and advice for new and existing businesses through its clients, housing as it does The Enterprise Agency for Teesdale and Wear Valley, Business Link North East and Teesdale Training.

Chairman of non-profit making organisation Teesdale Development Company which owns and manages the building, Tony Seaman, said the next ten years would see Enterprise House continue to develop to meet the changing needs of the business community.

"We have enjoyed great success with the quality of the businesses we have attracted to Enterprise House over the last decade. Not only can small and new businesses access a complete training and advice resource by walking through our doors but i-space has added another dimension to our offer and has attracted design and new media companies which offer visitors and clients a real creative hub.

"The establishment of Radio Teesdale within the building has really confirmed our place in the centre of the local community and helps make our offer as relevant today to Teesdale and its business community today as it was ten years ago in 1998."
