    The North East Business and Innovation Centre (BIC), a regional enterprise agency and business complex in Sunderland, has strengthened its property portfolio after opening a new centre in Washington.

    The Hub, on Crowther Road, Washington is in an ideal location, less than two minutes' drive from the A1 providing businesses with excellent road access to major regional towns and cities including Gateshead and Newcastle in the North to Durham, Darlington, Newton Aycliffe and further afield in the south.

    The building is situated in three acres of development land, lying over two floors and consisting of 17 modern, air-conditioned offices with a provision for meeting space, conference facilities as well as help and advice to start up and established businesses. These offices range from 150sq.ft. to 1,000sq.ft.

    Director of operations, David Howell commented:
    "The BIC continues to grow and in addition to our Sunderland site, I am pleased to announce we now have locations in Darlington and Washington. The Hub provides a fantastic state of the art facility that will appeal to local businesses wanting space in a great location. As well as free car parking on site, tenants will benefit from our 21 years' experience of supporting local businesses offering flexible tenancies as well as the ability to grow and expand by tapping into a range of additional support services provided by the BIC. The building opened last week and we have already welcomed our first tenant, Craig Downs from marketing and PR agency, Up North Communications."

    Craig adds:
    "I'd looked at other office space in the area, but needed somewhere that was not only in an ideal location but also offered me the flexibility to grow my business, and that's exactly what the Hub offers."
