Oakwood Park is a modern and stylish serviced office centre near the picturesque estate village of Ripley on the edge of the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The offices offer businesses a stunning location, landscaped grounds, ample parking and all-inclusive pricing for easy budgeting.
The business park was designed and developed by Alan Cryer and his wife, who built a home for themselves on the land first before developing additional buildings for offices. They still live on site and operate Oakwood Park as a family business.
Alan was keen for his offices to have all the advantages of being out of town without the disadvantage of poor connectivity. He talked to NYnet about the possibility of connecting the park to our fast fibre network, which is fully owned and managed by us with our team based just a few miles down the road in Harrogate.
The park opened at a time when fibre broadband was not widely available and Alan knew that having this installed would give the site a huge advantage when it came to attracting business tenants.
The business park’s rural setting makes it an idyllic place to work. However, it presented a challenge for connectivity to fast fibre broadband services.
NYnet designed a solution to bring full fibre to the premise with a combination of below ground and above ground cabling.
We worked closely with Alan throughout planning and installation and successfully delivered a superfast solution that has helped him attract a wide range of businesses to the park.
The network and broadband service is very robust and Alan knows that the NYnet team are on hand to respond quickly on the rare occasions that issues do arise. He and his tenants also have the flexibility to increase their bandwidth temporarily if they need extra broadband capacity at busy times.
Over the years Alan and NYnet have worked well together to ensure businesses at Oakwood Park enjoy fast speeds, reliable broadband and premium service levels.
“Thanks to NYnet’s fast and reliable gigabit broadband we have been able to give businesses a realistic option to take advantage of well managed serviced office space in a beautiful location.
“Using NYnet means I deal directly with the people who own and manage the network which gives me the advantage of premium service levels without the need to deal with third parties and call centres.
“I have always been delighted with the service and that high level of satisfaction is experienced by my tenants too.”
