The Hub, part of the North East Business and Innovation Centre (BIC), has already hit full capacity since opening its doors last year.
The centre is situated in three acres of development land and currently offers 17 modern offices ranging from 150 sq ft to 1,000 sq ft.
To cater for the increasing demand for office space in Washington, plans are now being drawn up to develop a new 40,000 sq ft state-of-the-art centre.
Business centre manager, Jillian Coleman, said: “Due to the success and demand for managed office space in this area, we have already outgrown our facility less than a year since we first opened.
“We are part of the North East BIC, so all tenants have the re-assurance they can access the same level and quality of service as those businesses located at Sunderland and Business Central Darlington.
“This is great news for businesses wishing to locate in the Washington area and it is expected that the new building will accommodate a range of businesses of all sizes, providing first class meeting and conference facilities, a café and crèche.”
As well as office space the centre also offers help and advice to start-up and established businesses.
One company to have benefited from The Hub over the past year is start-up utilities consultancy Zynergy. Read their story here. If you’ve enjoyed this article, click on the link below to sign up for more similar stories in your region.
