Flexibility. Community. Freedom.Welcome to the Serviced Office

Serviced Offices

Also referred to as business centres or executive suites, serviced offices have exploded in the past few years. Favoured for their flexibility and low relocation costs, despite the comparatively high cost of desk space, serviced offices are the perfect solution for all manner of businesses but make particular sense for start-up ventures. The premise behind a serviced office is really quite simple. A coworking provider will purchase or lease an office space and once built to the provider’s specifications, will subsequently offer portions of that space by the desk or suite. Private office suites can be supplied made to order, according to whatever the prospective tenant may need. This may include any branding or service upgrades which will all be subject to additional cost. Typically, electricity, heating, rates and a manned reception are included in a serviced office agreement, but there are many other costs that must be considered when entering into any serviced contract. As mentioned, coworking spaces are favoured for their flexibility, making entry and exit relatively painless. In addition, they allow for relatively effortless growth ‘intra-contract’ as one can easily upgrade to a larger available space when needed. This also applies when downsizing, although you will likely still have to give the agreed notice period before moving to a smaller space within the same building. Avoiding the hassle of changing address and any subsequent marketing and/or business cards however is obviously a major plus.

Why a Serviced Office?

A serviced office is the perfect solution for a multitude of scenarios, but the key factor is ‘flexibility’. With contract terms that require little to no money down in some cases, immediate move-in where applicable and attractive cancellation terms, the coworking environment is not only the home of choice for start-ups and freelancers, but for all manner of companies that require the freedom of movement without being locked into a long-term agreement. One of the most attractive aspects of a serviced office is the sense of community that a coworking environment creates. Those familiar with a well-executed serviced office environment will certainly attest to that. Another aspect that many tenants value is the networking opportunity that presents itself, either physically or via a dedicated intranet platform such as that promoted by the likes of WeWork. Here, companies can post requirements and/or advertise their services to other tenants within the building or provider group. This system works extremely well and can certainly help to offset the premium that a serviced office scenario can command.
