Demand for office space has been growing across London, including in the north London borough of Enfield, which has an ideal location close to the Olympic Park. If you need to refurbish workspaces in the district or want office refits, contact Thames Contracts for expert advice and a free initial quote.
Thames is based nearby and carries out a wide range of office refurbishment projects all over London and the South East. With office space in this whole area now at a premium, companies want to make the most of all space available and often prefer to arrange an office fitout for their existing building rather than moving to larger premises.
Located in outer London, Enfield shares borders with Hertfordshire and Essex as well as the neighbouring north London boroughs of Barnet, where Thames Contracts is based, Haringey and Waltham Forest.
The historic Enfield Town, which is the main centre within the borough, was once a small market town lying well outside London, in the county of Middlesex. Its landmarks included a palace, long since demolished.
Various other areas formerly within Middlesex are now part of the modern borough of Enfield, but retain their own character and identity. These include the smaller “town centres” at Palmers Green, Edmonton Green and Southgate. Popular markets are regularly held at both Enfield Town and Edmonton Green, while the Palace Gardens and Palace Exchange shopping centres feature a good range of stores. The town centres have seen improvements over recent years and there are plans for more remodelling in the future.
Known as one of the greenest London boroughs, Enfield has a good range of open spaces, including eight parks which have gained Green Flag status, meaning they are recognised as among the best in the country. Forty Hall and Estate, a Jacobean manor house set among gardens and parkland, is run by Enfield council and stages a wide range of special events and exhibitions.
More than 10,000 businesses are based in Enfield, with the majority of employees living in the immediate area. The borough boasts a wide range of transport links, with underground stations on the Piccadilly line at Arnos Grove, Cockfosters, Oakwood and Southgate, as well as London Overground services linking the area to Liverpool Street station.
As an outer London borough, Enfield also benefits from access to the road network linking it to areas outside the capital, including the M25. Lying within the London Stansted corridor and close to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park area, it has many advantages as a location for business.
Major companies and employers with bases in the area include Johnson Matthey and Coca Cola. Enfield now looks set to attract more businesses over the coming years, with major regeneration efforts in the pipeline. Together with the boroughs of Haringey, Hackney and Waltham Forest, Enfield has been involved in drawing up the planning framework for the Upper Lee Valley Opportunity Area, covering a wide area of north London which aims to bring 15,000 new jobs and more than 20,000 homes to the area by 2031.
One of the most ambitious projects planned is the massive Meridian Water development in Edmonton. This £1.5 billion plan will include thousands of homes and a range of businesses and industries, creating around 3,000 jobs. Plans for the development include a health centre and schools as well as offices, shops and restaurants.
