The customers of Capital Space business accommodation are a creative lot, and the flexibility we offer allows them to completely transform their workshops into entirely new designs, giving them the ability to communicate their brands as effectively as possible. We’ve already shown you some great pictures demonstrating the incredible flexibility of our business units .  Scroll down for some brilliant examples of changes our customers have made to their business workshops to put their own unique stamp on them.

OH MY Cakery – Milton Keynes Business Centre

OH MY Cakery has flourished as a business and the founder, Kirsty Lund, has adapted her workshop to really suit her company: "We chose to move into a workshop and have since done a whole load of plumbing and electrics and kitted it out with all our station needs. We have also added a seating area for people to come in.”

Little Stars Circus – Waterhouse Business Centre, Chelmsford

Little Stars Circus have transformed their workshop into a fabulous space for circus classes. Founder, Dr Diana Entwistle – who has a PhD in figure-skating biomechanics – said: “A few of the things we teach are: aerial silks, aerial hoop and static trapeze, straps, rope and acro-balance, all of which help with coordination and creativity. Our space is perfect for everyone from novices up!”

Personal Assistants for Life Skills (PALS) – Waterhouse Business Centre, Chelmsford

PALS provides one-to-one support for people with learning disabilities, first moving to Waterhouse Business Centre six years ago. Managing director Kirk Wells said:  "We wanted somewhere community based for people to do meaningful activities. It's nice to have a blank canvas". The company installed new carpets, a kitchen, relaxation area and a colourful memorial garden outside.

John Ford Group – Waterhouse Business Centre, Chelmsford

John Ford Group has transformed its unit at Waterhouse Business Centre, Chelmsford, into a showroom since they moved to the centre a year ago. The company specialises in house adaptations for the elderly, infirm and disabled and is now able to showcase their most popular bathroom makeovers in their showroom, including different types of accessible shower rooms, sanitaryware, furnishings and finishes. The transformation followed feedback from customers, who wanted to know what an adapted room would look like in real life.

Northshore Designs – St. George’s Business Park, Sittingbourne

The company specialises in corporate wear and has an in-house embroidery, print and logo service split between two adjoining workshops. Owner of Northshore Designs, Roger Townshend, said he spent £20,000 refurbishing the units seven years ago, which included installing a mezzanine floor, a shop front, bespoke shelving, vintage-style interiors and a trade counter. The refurb has been key to the continued success of the business: "Without it, I would not be here. The growth of online business means that small businesses, like ours, are surviving on footfall. We rely on walk-in trade from businesses with fewer than 10 employees. When they come in, they can look at the clothing and see what they want embroidered."

Eastwood Tile Warehouse – Laurence Industrial Estate, Southend

Eastwood Tile Warehouse has transformed two warehouses at the Laurence Industrial Estate, Southend, to showcase bathroom tiles to customers.  Owner Roger Tanton said: "When I started here in 1989, we ran a contracting side, but we have people coming here to see the tiles. We put some tiles out and it blossomed. Now, we don't do contracting anymore."
