About Us

Location

We are conveniently situated in Ashford, Middlesex, close to all local amenities and adjacent to the mainline station, providing a direct link to Waterloo and central London. We are 3 miles from junction 13 of the M25 motorway network and only 10 minutes from Heathrow airport.

The success of our current tenants and the healthy local economy can be attributed to a range of factors, not least of which is our proximity to Heathrow Airport, (one of the UK’s largest single site employers) and Central London. The area also benefits from excellent communication and transport networks and a highly skilled workforce.

The Powerhouse

Our building is a two storey converted pump factory, recently renovated and fully cabled, with male and female toilets, shower facilities, 2 tea & coffee points, storage and parking. It has a full alarm and access system and each office is lockable. The building has central heating and all offices are air conditioned.

During 2012 we created 20 new glass offices to accommodate between 2 and 7 people, and a newly appointed boardroom with fully integrated audio visual facilities and seating for over 10 people. Tenants have their own designated space in our on-site car park.

We have a 100M/Bit Fibre Connection into the building and we offer secure partitioned managed bandwidth usage up to 20M/Bit or a simple internet connection. We also offer a full technical IT service with our partner who looks after the IT infrastructure in the building. The building is fully Cat 5 cabled and we have our own secure data room to house each company’s appropriate IT equipment. We can offer IP telephony or standard BT lines with least cost routing that each tenant can take advantage of.

We know how expensive and time consuming moving or setting up a new office can be, so we have made the process of moving in as simple and as cost-efficient as possible.

We do not make money from your IT or Telephony.

All of our competitors make money from your telephony and data usage; a feature unique to us, is that we work with you to install your own voice and data circuits – we do not profit from your business in this way.

Our Tenants

Our tenants are from multi-national companies who have satellite offices to small businesses employing employing between one and seven people. We offer a cost-effective solution for small businesses. You may currently work from home, in a small leased or serviced office where the overheads/rates are high; maybe you are downsizing your business and want a fixed cost of operation, or you may need to expand, using some or all of the services we offer.

We work with you, not against you, to provide a flexible, cost effective service.

Our Ethos

We can help you to focus on the success of your business, without the distraction and expense of having to manage your building too. We offer a range of services to assist you in this, but essentially, we have created a vibrant, modern environment with the latest technology, that is more cost-effective than our competitors.

Unlike many serviced offices our aim is to encourage active networking in a mutually inclusive environment, through network meetings and our close links with the Ashford Business Forum. We bring in external industry specialists in finance, sales and marketing, social networking and business efficiency to our monthly meetings.* It is part of our commitment to our clients that we continually look to provide new and innovative ways to encourage and support them in whatever capacity they require.

Our offices have been carefully designed to create a modern, bright environment that provides a conducive, productive working space.

As a small company it is essential that you have a highly efficient IT and telephony infrastructure, that your business is accessible and online. We provide the latest technology and of course, work with you to ensure that you receive the correct level of support at all times.

You may also choose to become a partner of The Powerhouse and advertise on our website at no extra cost to you. Our Partner’s page hosts a number of local businesses that have provided an excellent service to The Powerhouse. This is just one of the many ways we seek to work with you and not simply profit from your time with us.

Please see our Testimonials page for a sample of some of the feedback we receive.

*We charge a number of local businesses for this service; however our tenants can use this service free of charge.
