Diss building transformed to cater for boom in new small businesses
A home installation company has transformed a disused building into a series of professional office spaces.
In the same week that figures emerged showing that the town is enjoying an unlikely small business boom, Diss Business Space is promising to offer a luxurious alternative to working from the kitchen table.
Headed by Rachel Harris, a director at Norwich Bathrooms and Kitchens, she said the company had decided to expand into Diss after seeing a growth in businesses over recent years.
“There are a wide range of businesses in Diss and it’s been lovely to see other local businesses in the area expand like we have over recent years,” she said.
“Diss is a wonderful town and, with it’s direct train line to London, it was the perfect location for the new office space.
“Norfolk is a very communal county and one that has plenty of passionate business owners, too.”
Along with an elegant design, the offices, based at Inspire House in Vinces Road, are packed with all the necessary utilities for a new start-up.
They boast a new modern kitchen, an elegant bathroom, air-conditioning and a heating system, along with secure fibre broadband.
Despite the unexpected boom in small businesses in the area, the current pandemic remains an uncertain and unprecedented time for any new start-up, but Miss Harris said the current circumstances were not without their benefits.
“Launching a new business during lockdown has been interesting and, while it has come with its own share of complications, it’s also worked in our favour,” she sad.
“It’s allowed us more time to focus on the finer details that come with a new business venture.
“Taking our own conversations with clients, small businesses have taken this time as an opportunity to regroup and refine; carrying out website upgrades, refreshing their internal operations and moving into new office locations like our own.”
