The Business Centre was originally founded in December of 2005 and has been in the business of providing fully furnished, serviced offices to businesses of various sizes for over 6 years.
Our philosophy is that running a business is challenging and complex. Once combined with the day-to-day administrative demands, and internal support, management and maintenance requirements, (staffing, cleaning, call answering), running a business becomes even more daunting.
If there was a way that running a business meant simply focusing on what it does well, leaving the infrastructural support requirements to a partner who specialised in this, then running a business brings with it the potential of becoming easier and more successful.
The Business Centre, is that partner.
Who is The Business Centre
History – Founded by 3 separate business owners Andrew Utterson, Travers Hathrill and Ceri James, in 2005, from the need to fill excess office capacity, we very quickly realised that there was a massive demand for not only office space, but office space that brought with it, a host of various services. These services started off with the basics of a receptionist, boardrooms, and phones, and would ultimately grow into a business that offers the widest selection of service options on demand.
Present Day – Today The Business Centre owns, manages and runs 6 centres nationwide throughout South Africa. 4 in Johannesburg (Bryanston, Rivonia, Fourways and Broadacres), and 2 costal centres (Umhlanga, Durban 70% occupied and Century City, Cape Town Opening June 2013 15% occupied).
The combined space under ownership and management totals a gross lettable area (GLA) of 22500sqm and an excess of 750 individual offices, making us the single largest serviced office company in South Africa.
- In addition to this, The Business Centre employs a dynamic staff compliment across a broad category range, with everyone from office cleaners to an Executive Committee, currently totaling in excess of 100 key personnel.
