Flexible Business Centres Go Electric!


BusinessLodge, the contemporary flexi-business space provider offering innovative office solutions to business communities in Bury is delighted to announce the roll-out of fast Electric Vehicle charging for their tenants.

With buildings featuring high-spec serviced facilities as well as providing virtual offices, meeting rooms and conference suites, BusinessLodge are determined to lead the way, with continuous innovation a major part of their ethos. With a unique, community-focused approach, BusinessLodge clients benefit from a professional, friendly working environment including an on-site gym, catering facilities and chill-out zones, along with ample secure car parking. Electric Vehicle Fast Charging has now been installed to satisfy demand as the switch to EV’s gathers pace across the UK and more tenants are changing their petrol & diesel vehicles.

“We wanted a comprehensive solution that would give us the option of multiple driver groups and charging rates” says Kate Holt, Managing Director at BusinessLodge. “The ability to tailor our EV charging pricing to allow clients to benefit from reduced rates is important to us, and also using time-based pricing to encourage off-peak charging, in-line with Government guidance” she added.

“We chose Charge-m8 after an extensive search as we were impressed with their proposal which included features we hadn’t considered and proved highly cost effective” said Lisa Kay, Centre Manager for BusinessLodge Bury. “From helping us with the OZEV grant application and holding on-site introduction and training meetings to explain the new system to our clients, Charge-m8 have made our introduction to EV Charging easy”.

BusinessLodge Clients can use the new 22KW 3-Phase Charge-Points by downloading the free Charge-m8 APP or by scanning a QR code on the charger display. “It’s really convenient for drivers with different options available to start a charging session” said Iain Hughes, Chief Technical Officer at Charge-m8 who designed and oversaw the installation of the scheme. “BusinessLodge also wanted to try to ensure a fair use policy was implemented to prevent drivers hogging a charging bay all day, so we built-in a charge for parking in the new EV Bays which only starts after a period has elapsed, giving drivers plenty of time to recharge and move their vehicle to a non-EV bay. It’s one of a number of features on our system that we can introduce for our clients” he continued.

With the UK Government widening the eligibility of EV Grant schemes to include landlords (residential & commercial) and small hospitality operators like B&B’s, the demand for professional EV Charger installation continues to increase. “As a vertically integrated charge-point manufacturer, installer and charge-point operator (CPO), with our own in-house fully qualified engineers, we can 100% guarantee the quality of each and every installation as we do it ourselves” says Julian Smith, Chief Executive Officer at Charge-m8. “We offer a growing range of EV Charging options for the Home and Workplace and as an OZEV (Office for Zero Emission Vehicles) approved Installer for both Domestic & Workplace charge-point installations, we’re really focused on delivering affordable solutions for clients looking to make the first step into EV Charging or expand their current charging provision.”

The BusinessLodge charging schemes feature five Charge-m8 Delta Three-Phase 22KW Charge-Points at each site with dedicated electrical infrastructure to support maximum capacity charging, along with bespoke EV charging-bay signage and floor markings.
