The Business Base has been providing cost effective office solutions and backup up support services since 1988.

Rowan House, Hethersett (originally known as Hethersett Business Centre) was the first business centre in the county.  Set up by Mary Tuddenham to provide services to her existing clients as well as new tenants; the official opening took place in October 1988.  Rowan House now provides Serviced Office Space to multiple tenants as well as being the base for our Remote Office and Add-Ons Services.

Eastgate Place, Norwich was acquired in 1997; the whole centre was initially let to one single company until 2004. It then became a ‘traditional’ business centre again with multiple tenants benefitting from our Managed Office Space solutions and facilities.

Technology and customers’ needs have changed significantly since 1988 and we pride ourselves in being flexible enough to adapt to these changes.  Our range of services allows us to support all types of businesses and individuals from one man bands to larger corporates; our friendly team at The Business Base will take the time to get to know each customer individually and find out exactly how we can help them to make use of our Smarter Ways of Working solutions.

Working within the Business Base, has been a very good experience for me. I am a none driver, and travel by bus to get here. Which is easily done by various routes. Also all the staff have been welcoming and friendly. Always willing to assist when I was unsure about things. The overall atmosphere of the Business Base is fantastic, and all the other businesses get along.

We moved our salon to The Business Base 9 years ago. We have been happy there, and if any problem arises, it only takes a phone call to Head Office, and if possible it's dealt with instantly. We're pretty much left to our own devices, it's always nice to see Claire and Luke when they pop their heads round door, and it's nice to know they're there if we need them.

The Business Base, Eastgate place is a very relaxed place to work. The management are very friendly and listen to what you say. It must be good we have been there for 9 years.

We use The Business Base as a Consulting / Treatment Room for our Clients. We like the area room and the business community in the Business Base. The ability to be able to work different hours is great as no all my appointments are in normal office hours. The fact it is not in a town centre is great for me as the surroundings are more conducive to my work. I have a ground floot room which is good for clients who can't do stairs and the onsite parking is a bonus. We have great communication with the Business Base Team who are always helpful and work with you.

"Business Base have been answering our telephones for over two years now. Originally we planned only to use them on a temporary basis to cover maternity leave but they were so good we have continued to use them. All of our telephone calls are answered professionally by staff who have taken the time to learn about our business. All of our calls are answered and our messages are emailed promptly and clearly to us. Business Base are a pleasure to deal with and we don't know how we ever managed without them!"
