Evolve Business Centre
Evolve is a state-of-the-art business centre, home to thriving software and technology businesses. Located on the outskirts of Sunderland, it has an enviable reputation as a place for innovation, recently described by a national newspaper as 'Sunderland's Silicon Valley'.
Based at Rainton Bridge South, close to the A1 and A19, the centre boasts advanced telecom and network facilities and is an ideal environment for technology-focused companies.
An uninterruptable power supply ensures that whatever happens, tenants are connected and ready for business. The building is accessed 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and has plenty of free parking.
The centre offers incubator spaces for small, ambitious businesses, as well as large bases for established multi-nationals. This mix encourages a great collaborative environment.
Make Evolve Business Centre your base
With bright, airy offices, and moveable walls, Evolve Business Centre offers spaces that are flexible enough to grow in.
The centre's adaptability has attracted a number of SMEs since opening in 2006. Many have moved from small offices to bigger suites to accommodate growing teams. Simple and straightforward payment options, including all-inclusive invoicing covering rent and service charges, make it an easy place to do business.
There’s a real buzz about Evolve. With great meeting spaces, and a bistro that doubles as an informal hub, new ideas and best practice are shared around.
